Cool gray rugs are a beautiful foundation for any room. These rugs have subtle tone on tone prints that create an airy feel. Grays work great to lift the color of a room, making a darker space feel more open. You can choose from modern geometrics to global-inspired woven gray rugs. Whether your space is classic or modern glamour, a gray rug is a great option for a fresh update.
The light palette of these rugs gives a breezy feel to a space, making them the perfect pairing for other soft textiles. I’ve used large gray area rugs as the foundations in several of my designs. In my San Clemente Beach House project a woven gray rug was the perfect fit for the main room filled with blues and sandy neutrals. When I designed a more sophisticated living room, I used a gray rug in a contemporary graphic print to create a more luxurious feel. Gray rugs work great in a variety of spaces and are great alternative to other neutral options.
Bring the outside in by adding living plants and greenery! Plants add so much warmth and life to a space, and you have many, many options available. They can bring in color and give an organic, fresh element to a room. And who doesn't love the wonderful, calming aroma of flowers? Consider using baskets as a unique option for a planter. They add beautiful texture to a room. For more home decorating tips, please visit my website, beckiowens.com.
