How a Pink Bohemian Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A pink bohemian rug can highlight your room’s decor by adding to the room’s color palette, emphasizing the style, and introducing motifs/patterns you incorporate elsewhere in the room. When you focus on finding similarities between your rug and other decor, you tie the entire room together so that it’s one cohesive space where each element works together and adds to one another.
Decorating With a Pink Bohemian Rug
You may be thinking that pink bohemian rugs are overtly feminine and youthful, and while that’s certainly an option, pink boho rugs extend further than those parameters. Different shades of pink from rusted rose to burnt pink dramatically change the rug’s tone and style. Along with that, there are plenty of other colors incorporated into pink bohemian rugs that alter the tone so that whichever way you want to lean, you can find a rug that perfectly conveys your style.
Choosing Which Pink Bohemian Rug is Right for You
As you shop for your perfect pink bohemian area rug, consider these key areas.
Position: Early on, determine your room’s layout and how your pink boho rug will fit into it. There are many options for layout, so take the following ideas as guidelines to get you started.
Living Room: Center your rug with your main seating area to establish that space. You can either place the rug in front of the seats, under their front two legs, or all the way under the chairs. You can also use a small pink boho rug elsewhere in the room to establish a small social corner or reading nook.
Dining Room: From a practical and stylistic standpoint, you’ll likely center your rug with the table. Be sure to leave about two-three feet of excess on each side for the chairs to be pushed in or pulled out.
Bedroom: It’s common to align your rug with the bed and place it either all the way under the bed or under the bottom two-thirds of it. Otherwise, place a rug next to the bed if the bed is off-center or use a pink boho runner rug along the side(s) of the bed. The bedroom is also an area where many choose to layer rugs, so consider that as a fun option to dress up the room.
Kitchen: You can bring those boho vibes into your kitchen by placing a 2x3 pink boho rug in front of a sink or stove. Runners are also a fantastic option in galley kitchens, kitchens with an island, or anywhere else you want to establish a pathway.
Bathroom: Next up, you can dress up your bathroom with a 2x3 or 3x5 pink boho rug by the sink, shower, or tub. If you have a double vanity, consider a pink runner rug to run parallel to that.
Shape/Size: Rectangular, round, and runner are the three most popular choices for pink bohemian rugs, but you can also find ones that are oval, square, or some other shape. Choose the shape and size that works best in your room’s layout so everything looks balanced, and don’t be afraid to be different with layering rugs of different sizes/shapes; boho style thrives when it is more eclectic, and messing with unique shapes and layouts is a good way to bring in that spirit.
Pattern: Boho style itself branches out into many different subcategories, like vintage and modern boho. Each branch has their own preference of patterns and designs, so you’ll find pink boho rugs that use oriental patterns, persian designs, geometric prints, etc. Choose a pattern that best fits with your favorite branch of boho style and connects to the other decor.
Color: Narrowing your search to pink bohemian area rugs definitely helps limit your search, but now you need to consider what shade of pink you want and what other colors should be in the rug. Hot pink, burnt pink, rusty pink, and other shades are ones that you’ll commonly find in pink boho rugs. Outside of those shades, you’ll see that navy, blue, red, orange, gold, and grey are common secondary colors. Focus on finding a color palette that connects to the rest of the room and conveys the same tone so that the room is stylistically consistent.
