Farmhouse style remains one of the most popular interior design styles out there because of how calming and homey it is. There are those trademark farmhouse decorations and signs you hang around the house, but another key part of farmhouse style is incorporating at least one rug so that your space feels cozy and welcoming. Looking for some ideas of how to add a rug to your home? Read on for some tips, tricks, and examples of other farmhouse style homes.
Farmhouse style as a whole loves to use light wood tones and flowers throughout the home. This room showcases that with the wooden window frames, mantle, and furniture. However, part of the reason they are so beautifully on display is because of how the rug incorporates similar colors browns and tans to fit into the design. You can do that with your rug and also expand the room's color palette by including other colors like the blues and reds of this rug.
Most times when you place a rug in the room, you'll have it overlap with the furniture at least a little bit so that it doesn't feel like it's "floating" in the middle of nowhere. The rug doesn't have to be under the main seat though; as this room displays, you can have furniture and even small accents like poufs on the corners of the rug to tie the space together.
Some rugs will show off very vintage imagery, but you may not think of them as vintage because the pattern isn't faded or distressed. However, rugs like these fit perfectly into modern farmhouse homes since they're cleanly presented but thematically farmhouse style. Pair that rug with simple seats, modern tables, and other accents and you can create a beautiful modern farmhouse living room.
Even if you have patterns in your room's pillows and furniture, you can still have a farmhouse style rug that highlights its own design. When choosing a rug, look at your existing accents for their general shapes, imagery, and motifs. The rug's design should carry similar design elements over, whether that is similar rounded lines, floral motifs, or recurring shapes. Consistent coloring can also help you mix and match patterns in your farmhouse living room.
Neutral tones are anything but boring. In this modern farmhouse living room, black, white, and beige are all used in different materials, patterns, shades, and degrees to create a dynamic room. The inclusion of the natural jute rug only furthers this color scheme and adds a new dimension to the room's grand design. You may similarly use a rug to complement a neutral color palette and add definition to your space.
Black and grey are two colors often used in tandem in farmhouse style homes. While that color combination may sound dark and dreary, this dining room proves that these two colors can actually create a light and airy space. By intentionally pairing these colors with warm materials and tones, you can create a warm and inviting farmhouse room.
Rugs have a key role in defining or reinforcing the room's color palette. In this farmhouse living room, the rug actually takes that philosophy one step further and accents every color seen in the room. The rug's green colors carry over to the chairs, the blue to the furniture and art, and cream to the curtains and walls. In situations like these, the rug can serve as the final connection between all the room's accents or give you inspiration on what colors to include in your room's key accents.
Grey is a mainstay of modern farmhouse style. Whether you are decorating a master bedroom, farmhouse dining room, country living room, or some other area of the home, grey area rugs can suit your room's unique aesthetic. Grey rugs come in many different shades, color palettes, patterns, and tones, so they are suited for rustic farmhouses, modern farmhouses, and traditional farmhouses.
Large farmhouse area rugs can create a more warm and comfortable sitting area in farmhouse living rooms. By covering the majority of the room's floor, large rugs and carpets can create a soft area to walk on and add natural texture to the room. This setup can also inspire you with carpet ideas and guide you towards luxuriously soft and comfortable area rugs.
Wallpaper is back in style, and it has more potential than ever. This farmhouse dining room features a very simple floral wallpaper that perfectly suits this country-style space. The rug only furthers the impact of the wallpaper by highlighting the wallpaper's secondary accent color. No matter what color palette you are using in your farmhouse dining room, using a secondary color as your rug's main hue is a fantastic way to round out the room's grand design.
Although modern farmhouse style originally used white, black, and grey as the primary colors, many current forms of farmhouse use cream and beige colors in the schemes instead. The clay colored rug shown here adds natural warmth to the room, and with its color, it also draws in a beautiful color from the great outdoors.
Farmhouse style isn't a one size fits all style; it has many different interpretations and unique ways to be on display. Modern farmhouse, vintage farmhouse, country farmhouse, and so many other combinations exist to be explored and used in unique ways. Through intentional placement of your rug, pattern choice, texture, and color palette, you can find at least one farmhouse rug to perfectly convey your one of a kind style.
