Decorating with Area Rugs (some tips)

Since you will be using the rug as both the main focus point of the room and a guide for additional decorating, it’s important to carefully consider which pieces of furniture and paintings will ultimately compliment the design of the rug. For instance, dark paintings and decorations tend to work well with lighter rugs embellished with simple dark designs. It is also essential to consider the walls. Patterns and wallpaper tend to match best with solid rugs, while plain walls compliment elaborate artwork best.
