Going With Neutrals or Earth Tones

Eric has tried color before and finds he really isn't a fan. He feels most comfortable with darker neutrals and earth tones. Now he can't quite decide which of these 5 rugs to choose for this extra room that may become an office or "man cave".

He has seen lighter rugs used to contrast darker rooms so he is willing to try on of these.

Harper 07NL by Loloi

This one is going outside the box a little, but there is something about the mottles look that appeals to him.

Kasbah 3807A by Sphinx

His inclination is to go with one of these three, preferring the darker one. Which do you think would work best?

Marrakesh 5993E by Sphinx

Truth be told, any one of these would work well, but it is important to think long term. Down the line the rug may find its home in another room or he might change the furniture. Earth tones and neutral rugs are a good choice as they complement pretty much everything. The key is to have enough texture and interest when choosing these types of rugs so that the decor doesn't come off as flat and muddy. 

We'd love to hear your comments about which rug Eric should go with for his room. Share in the comments below.

That’s a subtle way of thikning about it.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
