For those who'd like some extra inspiration for decorating with southwestern runner rugs, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite ways to use these beauties below:
Southwestern style rug runners can look stunning in a cozy living room. You might place these western runners along the walkways between the couch and the coffee table, or the walkways in and out of the room. In either case, pick a saturation and pattern that works well with your existing design and palette.
For example, you might try an Aztec runner rug between a tan sofa and a pine coffee table, surrounded by similar patterns on the walls and accent pillows.
Southwestern bedrooms are popular in a wide range of interior styles because of the warm colors and cozy appeal. For example, you might use a Navajo runner rug along either side of the bed in a deep red to make the space feel romantic and relaxing. Or a tan rug with red accents in the design to go with a deep red Navajo-style comforter.
Adding southwestern hallway runners to your home’s decor can make it feel more relaxing and welcoming. Use runners to make your hallways feel more colorful and livelier and to connect the southwestern theme throughout the home.
For example, you might use a red and tan runner in the hallway between a bedroom decorated in reds and a living area decorated in tan.
