Blue Area Rugs
Evoke a serene, peaceful feeling by adding a blue area rug to your room. Blue, the color of sky and water, can be warm, when it has hints of red or green, or cool, with undertones of yellow. Consider a warm blue area rug in your living room to make it cozier. Cool blue runners on either side of your bed encourage calmness and can make the space feel bigger. True blue has a clean, crisp appearance that works well in a bathroom.
The style of the rug affects the feel of your space just as much as the tone of blue you choose. Enhance your casual family room with a contemporary geometric or a cottage/coastal-style botanical pattern. A traditional floral pattern might be perfect for your den, while a fun abstract defines your distinctly modern living room.
How you use your rug affects your choice of material. Flat-weave outdoor carpets made of polypropylene don't fade or deteriorate under tough weather conditions. Art silk rugs with a cushiony pile are soft under your feet, which is especially nice in a bedroom. Perhaps the ultimate in underfoot comfort is natural wool, a fiber that can last a lifetime.
