We thought it would be fun to pull together several area rugs that complement Pantone’s suite of color stories for Fall Winter 2014.” Discovery”, so named as it explores the search of new thoughts, ideas, and visions, can be broken down into seven (7) color schemes. – Design Bites. Inspired by a post by designer Christina Mogk of Mecc Interiors outlining the seven palettes, we will coordinate 8 rugs for each over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for the updates!
Balance and temperance sum up the overall color feeling for Autumn/Winter 2014/2015. We continue our approach to merged color by highlighting mélange and degrade arrangements. This attention to “mixing” is carried through into our choice of harmonies, where we explore the combination of classic hues with faster fashion tones. – Pantone
Preciosa sums the collection up well. It’s all about finding new ways with color that express the ever expanding global community and then bringing it home. “To discover means to be courageous. By exploring these unexpected color combinations we create a new color language; a language that can evolve quickly or develop slowly, whatever best suits your market needs and desires.
In this Fall Color Series we will highlight area rugs that complement both the colors for each palette and the mood and vibe each is meant to convey. First up is “Uncovering”. “This palette is a soft, sheer, neutral scheme; classic and timeless, there is a certain romanticism and purity to the collection. Uncovering brings to mind the materials used to decipher the unknown and inform the present” reports designer Christina Mogk of Mecc Interiors. The bedroom below evokes the feeling of this palette nicely.

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.
