A traditional rug is a simple way to add texture to hard floors and contrasts to carpeted rooms. Rugs can be used anywhere in the home, keeping feet warm when stepping out of the bathroom, or adding an “ahhh” moment to when you get out of bed.
If you want to embrace the traditional style, look out for big, bold patterns, with perfect symmetry and ornate detail. Both muted and very rich tones work well, as do shabby chic and artificially distressed styles. You could even add a touch of culture by exploring Eastern styles for extra color and glamor.
