Orange Rugs and Bold Patterns Heighten Wow! Factor in 7 Interiors

Posted by Kate Watson on Oct 23, 2013 5:12:00 PM

Orange is one of the big colors this fall, and you’d be surprised how many ways you can use this bold color to add drama and flair to any room in the home. While orange might seem tricky to coordinate, in reality, it works with a huge number of color schemes. It can add a bold punch of color to a black and white interior. It works surprisingly well with blue, its complementary color on the color wheel. It adds extra interest to a room that uses pinks, corals or reds in the predominant color scheme. It blends nicely with golds, yellows and browns. Orange rugs can be used to make dramatic statements in a number of different ways. Use a bold orange rug as an anchor point, or use a softer coral pattern to create a remarkably rich and elegant backdrop to blend elements of the room. And when you pair the color with another of the season’s biggest trends – geometric patterns – the wow factor goes off the charts.

Posted by Caroline Bell on Sep 1, 2013 9:52:00 AM

Is your vision of needlepoint rugs confined to subtly colored rugs with tame floral motifs? If so, prepare to get your mind blown away with the beauty of bold and colorful needlepoint rugs. Because they are flat-woven and have intricate patterns, needlepoint rugs are often thought of as being high on aesthetic and low on function, especially when compared to other types of rugs. What you may be surprised to learn is that you can find good quality needlepoint rugs in bold, vibrant colors that are also highly durable and suited for trafficked rooms. You may have a needlepoint rug that you're dying to use, but you're afraid. Use it. Billy Baldwin said, "Stick to the things you really love. An honest room is always up to date."
