Warm Up Your Decor with the Best Rugs for Hardwood Floors

Shag Rugs for Hardwood Floors

There’s no question that hardwood floors are a stylish and practical choice for the home. They lay a solid, versatile foundation for any decor, and they have the added benefit of being easy to clean. But left totally bare, hardwood floors can look a little naked–and feel cold underfoot too. Fortunately it’s easy to warm up your hardwood floors, both aesthetically and literally, with a great rug!

Shag rugs for hardwood

One of the best rugs for hardwood floors is a shag rug. The long pile adds textural contrast to the polished surface of hardwoods, and it feels inviting to bare toes. Look for neutral hues that can adapt to any interior style, from boho to modern, and consider a subtle pattern for additional visual interest. By combining a cozy shag rug with cool hardwood floors, you can enjoy the best of all worlds!

Fall For Knits


Don’t you just love sweater weather? Honestly, it’s just the quintessential time to cozy up to that special someone with a mug of warm cider and a good book. Not to mention apple picking, finding the perfect pumpkin, and all the other fantastic fall activities. With all this great stuff to do, the perfect fall look shouldn’t be too complicated. My go-to of course is the chunky knit sweater in a range of neutrals. While shopping for the perfect fall sweater, be mindful of the different types of yarns for your choosing. From thick-to-thin varieties, wool or cotton, even a boucle…there are tons of options. As for color, I am obsessed with oatmeal and ivory for that classic, comfy layered look. It just feels so of-the-season, don’t you think? Plus, ivory sweaters pair really well with a favorite flannel and your boyfriend jeans.


Then, for the home, I suggest staying within the same color palette and opting for these more textural rugs. One option is a chunky shag rug, like this one from Orian Rugs. The creamy ivory color goes with practically everything and the rug’s style itself can veer from loft-modern to global bohemian depending on your home’s existing style. Another option is to go for a chunkier woven wool rug. A great neutral base for any room, I am torn between whether I love the all ivory colored rug or whether I prefer tonal shades of ivory to grey to charcoal. Both are a winner in my book when it comes to getting your home ready for fall this year!

Prepare for Spring with Outdoor/Indoor Rugs

Outdoor/Indoor Rugs 3

As spring approaches, bringing with it the rain, slush, and puddles of winter’s thaw, appropriate floor coverings in high-traffic areas become all the more important. And when it comes to preparing for the wet season, outdoor/indoor rugs turn even the simplest entryway into a mudroom!

Neutral outdoor/indoor rugs are especially versatile; they offer the texture of fibers like jute or sisal, but have water repellant properties that make them easy to clean. Plus with patterns like check, houndstooth, and subtle stripes, you can create a tidy and stylish welcome every time you step in your door!

Decorating with Hide Rugs

Hide Rugs

If you’re looking to add interest to a space but want an alternative to standard floor coverings, be sure to put a hide rug on your list of options. Once just a mainstay of mountain lodges and cowboy movie sets, hides have gone mainstream. Whether your interiors style is modern, traditional, or somewhere in between, they’re a great way to inject texture and subtle, neutral pattern.

Decorating Hide Rugs

There are hide rugs to suit every style and palette. A zebra rug (don’t worry, it’s actually wool!) sets the scene for a glam boudoir or sitting area; cowhide warms up midcentury-inspired rooms; and hides in mottled grey mimic reindeer for a nod to Scandinavian chic. Hides also have the benefit of being easy to clean with a simple shake outside, and they layer well on top of other rugs for a quick change in decor. No chaps and spurs required!
