How a Pink Outdoor Rug can Highlight your Outdoor Decor
Whether your backyard is stationed in the desert or in grassy hills, decorating with a pink outdoor rug can be the perfect addition to your design scheme. Pink comes in a variety of different shades and patterns, so pink rugs can fit into any design style with ease. Your outdoor decor will be highlighted with a pink rug because the rug can match the style and vibe your accents inspire, and will help cement your style.
Decorating with a Pink Outdoor Rug
When decorating with a pink outdoor rug, think about how that pink will tie in and compliment your other accessories and decor. Common outdoor accessories that will go with your rug include plants, pillows, blankets, candles, umbrellas, and even the seats themselves. You can choose to make all these accessories and furniture pink, or you can choose colors that highlight the pink in your rug. Your rug and accents shouldn’t compete with one another; they should create a unified design that lets each item have its moment in the sun.
If you choose not to make everything pink, some popular colors to pair with the pink include blue, green, grey, orange, turquoise, and white.
Choosing which Pink Outdoor Rug is Right for You
There are a few avenues to consider when it comes to choosing with a pink outdoor rug.
Position: Where do you plan on using your pink outdoor area rug? Do you plan on placing it in the center of a large seating area, or do you plan on letting it rest beneath your outdoor dining area? Deciding on where you want to place the rug is the first step in choosing which rug you want, because where you place it and how you place it has a direct impact on the size of the rug you use.
Size: If you’re placing your rug directly in the yard or on a large piece of concrete, you may not be too worried about the size of your rug. When pairing your rug with your outdoor furniture, be sure to consider the scale. For example, you don’t need a 12x12 foot rug for one chair, but you also don’t need a 2x3 rug for an outdoor sectional. Plan to space out your area just as you would do a layout for any other room of the house.
Shape:Rectangular and round rugs may be the most common rugs, but they’re not the only options for outdoor pink area rugs. Look around for other options, or go with the traditional rectangular or round rugs. Both have their perks based on their shapes, but the shape of the rug isn’t the only important aspect to note in terms of appearance.
Pattern: The pattern you choose for your outdoor pink rug has a large impact on the area’s style and tone. As a general guideline, persian and ornate patterns tend to go well with more traditional or elevated spaces, and so can pink floral rugs. Geometric patterns often work with modern design, but that’s not the only place they fit. Stripes can also transcend styles and fit with boho, coastal, farmhouse, and other styles depending on the lines’ thickness and colors.
Shade: Finally, there’s the shade of pink. Dusty rose pink can bring a more sophisticated feel to the space, while bubblegum pink can make your backyard feel more youthful. There are hundreds of shades of pink, so no matter which style or mood you’re trying to create, you can find a pink rug that works for you.
