Decorating with Periwinkle Area Rugs
Periwinkle area rugs are always beautiful, whether they're highly saturated or barely-there. They can go well with neutrals, metallics, and other shades of blue and purple. You can also pair periwinkle with orange, green, and different shades that generally wouldn't go with purple because of its blue undertones.
Periwinkle rugs are an excellent color for any room, style, or color scheme. With a tranquil character, this shade fits into the living room, bedroom, kitchen, and anywhere else in the home. Don't forget to add a pad to your cart to protect your rug's backing and pile from premature wear and tear.
If you’re still trying to decide where to use periwinkle area rugs in your home, check out our ideas below for more inspiration. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite ways to use these beauties.
A periwinkle living room area rug can make your space feel colorful without being overpowering. Pick a style that goes well with the rest of your living room decor, and place the rug at the center of your seating area to make it more inviting.
If your home is busy with a lot of shoe traffic, consider outdoor/indoor periwinkle rugs instead of indoor-only options. Rugs made for both indoor and outdoor use are still soft, and they're much more resilient to high traffic, moisture, and soil exposure.
You’ll look forward to going to bed every night with a periwinkle bedroom area rug in your room. This soothing shade can fit right in with greys, blues, and purples to create a serene scene that lulls you right to sleep.
If your bedroom is low-traffic and protected from shoe traffic, you might opt for a periwinkle shag rug to curl your toes into every morning.
Bathrooms usually use blues and greens because of the association with water in this space, and periwinkle bathroom rugs fit right in. Bathrooms usually work well with bath mats or runners, and if the space is used for bathing, you’ll want the rug to be water-resistant. Try blue, green, ivory, or white and periwinkle runner rugs, depending on your current color scheme.
Periwinkle area rugs can ground and anchor your dining room while maintaining a calm, uplifting atmosphere. Try a round periwinkle area rug underneath a round dining table or a rectangular option underneath a rectangular dining table.
