How a Pink Moroccan Area Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A pink Moroccan rug can highlight your room’s decor by connecting to the room’s ovaraching style, reinforcing the color scheme, and setting the mood. Whenever you design a room, it’s important to find similarities between the rug and your wall art, poufs, pillows, and miscellaneous decor so that the room feels cohesive and each element builds off one another.
Decorating With a Pink Moroccan Area Rug
Pink Moroccan area rugs can be as feminine as you want them to be. Pink comes in so many different shades, from the femine tones of hot pink and light pink to other shades of burnt pink, rusty pink, and so on. Plus, pink is rarely the sole color of the rug, so you can find a rug with a palette that fits your style perfectly.
Choosing Which Pink Moroccan Area Rug is Right for You
As you shop for your perfect pink Moroccan rug, consider these key areas to guide you.
Position: First, determine the room’s layout and how the rug fits into it. There are several ways to go about this.
Living Room: In your living room, it’s natural to center your pink Moroccan area rug with your main seating area. You have the choice of layering the rug with the furniture by placing it under the front legs or all the way under the seats (or not overlapping at all).
Dining Room: When you center your rug beneath your dining room table, be sure to leave two-three feet of excess for the chairs to be pushed in or pulled out.
Bedroom: A common layout in bedrooms is to place your rug directly under the bed either all the way under it or under the bottom two-thirds of it. If your bed is off to one side, you can still center a larger area rug in the middle of the room itself.
Kitchen: 2x3 and 3x5 pink Moroccan rugs fit well in front of kitchen sinks or stovetops. Otherwise, use a pink Moroccan runner in kitchens with a narrow path, such as a galley kitchen or a kitchen with an island.
Bathroom: Next, you can style your bathroom similarly to the kitchen by placing small rugs in front of the sink(s). Runners also fit in bathrooms where you have a double vanity or another narrow path.
Size/Shape: After you finalize your layout, it’s time to think about what size and shape rug you need to optimize the space. Rectangular, round, and runner are three common options that work in most rooms, but if you have a uniquely shaped room or just want to make a statement, look at rugs that are square or another shape.
Pattern: The good news is that pink Moroccan area rugs have a variety of patterns and designs available, so you can choose one that is as busy or as simple as you want. In general, both vintage and modern Moroccan patterns tend to use diamonds or similar shapes as a main component of the design. If you already have decor or are buying some more, look for a rug pattern that uses shapes similar to the other wall art and poufs to firmly establish the room’s theme.
Color: As stated earlier, pink comes in many different shades and tones. Look at a pink that conveys the proper tone and find a rug with a palette that connects to the other decor. The colors don’t have to be identical to one another, but they should be in the same family and should definitely create the same mood.
