There are so many decisions to make when designing a space; although, two key elements tend to make up the biggest design dilemmas. They are picking the right color and choosing the right rug. They both make a big impact, but luckily the hard choices have easy solutions.
You’ve likely selected a color already without even knowing it.
Pick a color that you often see yourself wearing. Reason behind this is you are comfortable with this color and you are attracted to it. If you love wearing black, consider a monochromatic space with a pop of color. If you’re more of a denim person, try working with the Pantone Color of the year, Classic Blue.
Another way to select a color is choosing one from nature. Nature driven color schemes have been proven to be comforting and do not tend to bore you over time. Vivid greens, golden yellows, and autumn oranges are a few of the top colors you could consider selecting from.
If you are bold, put one of these colors on your sofa or an accent chair to really add a pop of excitement to the room. The most popular approach is painting a wall the accent color of your choice. Putting it on the main focus wall draws attention and adds interest to any room. Add a few accessories and the space is complete.

Now what about the rug size? There is actually more than one right answer. It’s all about how you want your space to look and what you feel is more appealing. If you have a smaller space, you will want to keep the rug smaller, for the living room that means feet off the rug. Another option is placing the legs on the rug which connects the pieces together and unifies the space. Lastly, a larger rug defines an area. This is most popular whenever you have a large room that serves multiple purposes.
How to lay a rug in the bedroom is more of a preference. We suggest starting the rug in front of the nightstands. Your preference comes in to determine if you like the look with the rug slightly past the nightstands or slightly smaller.
