Red is never boring! Red is the color of love, energy, danger, excitement and passion. Depending on the tone, shade, and design, red can be contemporary, traditional, rustic, or modern. From deep Merlot to warm Blush, red can be used in any room as a bold design element or a simple accent.
A single large red rug in a bold tone can be the perfect accent to enliven a space. Choose something in a crimson of fiesta red color to automatically heighten the senses and get the blood pumping.
If you’re going for a more neutral look, try adding red as an accent. A neutral colored rug with pops of red can add interest to the space without overwhelming it.
Red naturally shows up in rustic design. If you’re looking to warm up and define your rustic room, a red rug is ideal. Look for rugs in a southwest or lodge style in warm earthy tones such as rust or brick red. Most rustic style rugs are made with wool, which is a favorite material for its softness and ease of care.
Rejuvenate your outdoor entertaining space with red! Whether your space is big or small, red is a great color to make your outdoor room feel fresh and exciting. An indoor outdoor rug helps to soften the space and make it feel more like an actual room that simply lives outside.
Whether you’re looking to make a bold statement or simply want to enliven a more neutral space, red is a timeless color that will give your room the perfect vibe you’re looking for. If you find that red is too bold to go with your existing decor, opt for a pink rug with hues ranging from deep magenta to dusty pale pink.
Don’t forget a rug pad to help prolong the life of your red rug and keep it in place!
