Regular followers of our Facebook page are familiar with our "Which Rug?" posts. It's a fun way to flex your decorating eye, get inspired, and see new ways to incorporate rugs into your own home. Here's our most recent room in need of a rug - Which one would you pick? (As they say in math class, show your work in comments if you are so inclined.)
The chair fabric dominates the design scheme here so adding another pattern would be a tricky risk. But a predominantly solid rug with a patina and or texture would do the trick to finish off this lovely, cool pastel palette. A darker color will highlight the brighter colors, while a similarly lighter hued rug would act as a unifying complement. Which rug would you lay down to complete this space? A, B, C, D, or E?

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.
