In terms of colours, it is essential to choose a colour that you really like and won’t get sick of quickly. There are no right or wrong colours; it only comes down to your tastes and preferences. However, it is good advised to match up a particular colour in the room, for example the colour of your walls, curtains, cushions or even artworks.
Always keep the colour matching subtle and not over the top in a way to harmonise everything in your room. If your space is already full of colours, you don’t necessarily need to try and match your rug to its environment, it is best to choose a neutral colour.
The other way around applies for a very neutral room, a bright coloured rug will look great. In matching a wall or furniture colour, your rug will only help to set off your interior and make your design come together.
Keep in mind that you will always get a colour variation depending on the material you’ll choose, as different yarns absorb light differently. Natural fibres like wool tend to absorb light more than synthetic fibres showing colours less brightly. Also, the light will vary depending on which side of the yarn it is reflected off. The cut edge of yarn side will always show colours darker than the other side.
If you love one of our rugs but want to see the colour in your home, we have small colour tiles that we can send to you for approval. We can even order a small sample of the design for a small fee to ensure you are completely happy prior to the big purchase. Email me for more information or learn more about our offerings here.
