If you prefer your area rug be placed in front of the couch, it should run the same width (or a little longer) than the couch. For a more interesting look, you could try placing the rug at an angle in order to anchor the space.
Those playful patterns and vibrant colors continue out onto the terrace, where a bright orange area rug softens the wood flooring. The space also includes an outdoor table and matching chairs, with a pitcher and two glasses waiting at the ready for guests.
A crystal flush-mount light fixture adds a touch of glamor to this classic bedroom. Light blue bedding gives additional color in the space, and a white rug with a gold-colored pattern complements the subtle pattern in the bedspread. Two metal wire pendant lights flank the bed, adding a vintage flair in the room.
No need to use a fabric rug in this outdoor space, given the orange and white-bordered rug painted on the wood deck. The cheery bright color scheme continues with the outdoor dining table and orange and white stools.
A mustard yellow rug defines this cozy seating area. The bold yellow accents pop against gray furnishings and a charcoal-colored brick focal wall. An intriguing metal chair made of vintage radiators sits next to the focal wall for added visual interest.
Understated elegance is the name of the game in this neutral dining room. A round rug in the same earth tones as the rest of the room grounds the design and creates a cohesive feel with the dining table and chairs.
This fresh living room features a white tufted armchair with a yellow pillow and matching area rug. A round end table is the perfect spot for a warm cup of coffee, while a gold metal shelf showcases books and decorative objects.
After a renovation, what had been a formal dining room is now staged as a casual sitting area that opens onto the back deck of this New York home. A sectional sofa and and ottoman provide plentiful seating for guests. The neutral pieces are lived with rich orange accents.
Low lighting creates a calm look over this den. Deep orange accent pillows add a pop of color to the gray couch and matching arm chair. A neutral and gray area rug aligns with the neutral-toned floor while adding a touch of pattern to the solid tones. A set of four blue chairs near built in bookshelves creates a cozy reading or relaxing sitting space.
Yellow and gray patterned curtains pull back to let in natural light over the gray-brown sectional. Throw pillows compliment the curtain colors and decorate with a mix of patterns. A three-leg coffee table beautifully suits the retro vibe of the design and leaves plenty of open floor space for a comfortable finish.
