Step One – Color and Pattern
Color builds on the tone you set for the room. Colors like red are bold and intense; greens and blues quiet an area down. Lighter shades can open up and brighten a space; conversely, darker shades make for cozy, more intimate settings.
Check to see if matching a fabric or a wall treatment will be a key factor in your selection. Will it be a complementary color or an accent hue?
Step Two – Construction and Fiber
Begin with a lifestyle assessment then move on to fibers and constructions that fit. There are literally dozens of materials used in making rugs from machine polypropylene to lush handmade wools, even leather shags, bamboo slats, natural fibers…the options are as endless as you imagination.
