This month, our design experts are excited to share some of their favorite pairings of today’s most fashionable flooring with rugs that will boost the mood of any room. Get ready to be inspired—and learn some design tips along the way!

Layering the look

No matter what kind of flooring you have in your home, the addition of an area rug instantly elevates the vibe of any room. Whether you’re looking to dress up your space or protect your beautiful floors, our designers agree that the rug you choose should complement your flooring in style, tone, and pattern. So, what is your favorite layered look? Let’s check them out.

Whitewash tones

Lighter floors look even more beautiful when paired with deep, rich hues like blue and green. For a more dramatic look, black and white is always in style and provides the ultimate in contrast and timelessness. Some designers love natural fiber rugs with whitewash floors. It all depends on the style and vibe of your space.

Grey tones

Grey is one of today’s hottest flooring colors—and for good reason. Grey not only lends a rich tone to your home, but its neutral palette makes it the perfect backdrop for pops of color. Check out these gorgeous pairings. Which one suits your fancy?

Neutral flooring

The best part about neutral-toned flooring is that the sky’s the limit when it comes to pairing colors in an area rug. One rule of thumb is to choose at least one color from your furniture or accessories to create a smooth flow and to tie the look together. We are loving the color pairings in these looks. Which one is your favorite?

Dark flooring

Pairing a rug with dark flooring is like playing dealer’s choice. It’s all about the design style and look you’re going for. While some designers believe that lighter, simpler rugs are best for contrast, others say dramatic and bolder colors—like scarlet and charcoal—make the ultimate statement. Whichever you choose, layering your favorite look on darker floors will warm up the room with a cozy and welcoming vibe.
