When you want to lift the color of a room, a new neutral rug is an excellent choice. Neutrals are a classic option for any space, but the key is to pick a fresh pattern or weave that will update your designs. I like to use a neutral rug when I’m layering in fun colors and other patterned textiles. One of my favorite neutral rugs is a Moroccan style. The patterns have a bit of a contemporary feel and they work well in high traffic areas. These rugs work great under a master bed, layered on carpet, to add interest or in large living areas. With its light foundation, I have the freedom to add bold pops of color with throws and pillows, creating an eclectic, fun design. Adding a new neutral rug design to your space with give it an instant lift and updated look.
