Earlier in the year we posted a selection of rugs to go with the Pantone Spring color collection. Now, as we move into Autumn, a post by Melissa Michaels on the My Colortopia Blog inspired us to pull together a set of complementary rugs to go with the Glidden colors for Fall 2015.
Take Autumn in another color direction - Soft Pastels for Fall! So often Autumn is associated with those deeply saturated golds, oranges, rusts and browns. This palette is a nice departure and offers a wonderfully fresh decorating option. Which do you like best?

Whether you choose to keep with the soft pastel or go with something more bold, this palette is a sure winner. These are just a few of the many options to choose from if you decide to paint with one of these Glidden colors. Which is your favorite?
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.
