Happy Colorful Rugs

Happy Colorful Rugs Set the Mood of the Room

Everyone knows that the perfect rug sets the mood of the room. A bright and vibrant rug creates a feeling of energy and optimism. You just feel happy when you walk into the space. Humans are automatically drawn to certain shapes and colors that make them feel good. When choosing a rug, it is important to stop and consider how it makes you feel when you first see it. Here are some examples of rugs that will brighten your day and help you transform your room into your happy place.

Bright Geometric Patterns

Geometric patterns create a sense of order and balance. In recent years, chevrons, zigzags, and other geometrics in bold colors have been a part of our design vocabulary. This is because they make you automatically smile when you see them. Fine hand-knotted rugs in bright, bold geometrics add an element of surprise, but they also have a primitive, tribal quality that makes us smile. A bold geometric rug is the perfect complement to brighten styles from ultra-modern to Boho chic.

Rare and Beautiful Colors

Psychologists have devoted an entire field of study to colors and the feelings that they invoke in people. Some colors automatically make you feel happy and lift your mood. In the world of Persian rugs and Oriental rugs, certain colors are found more than others, such as reds and blues. However, finding that rare piece with an unusual shade or rare color creates an element of surprise. Colors that make you feel good should be the first priority on your list when choosing a rug.

Lively Florals

Nothing brightens a room like flowers, and the same is as true for rugs as it is for flowers in a vase. Garden-inspired rugs bring the colors and shapes of the natural world indoors. Humans have a natural affinity for nature and anything that reminds them of nature. Bold florals in saturated colors automatically invoke a feeling of happiness and inner peace. They can be playful and whimsical or realistic and natural. Choosing a floral rug is a sure way to make the room feel a bit more bright and cheerful.

Pretty Primitives

Tribal and village rugs are known for their primitive designs and eclectic color combinations. Something that is primitive and connects you to man’s roots seems to bring a smile and a feeling of joy. They are unexpected in today’s modern world and give us a colorful connection to our common past. The bold patterns are almost child-like and have a whimsical feel. These primitive designs add an element of surprise that will always bring back a touch of the joys of childhood to the room.

Optimistic Colors

When you want colors that almost always bring a sense of optimism to the room, you can’t go wrong with bright oranges and yellows. These colors always add a sense of cheerfulness to the room, whether they are the main attraction, or just sprinkled in a bit for flavor. If you want something calming and peaceful, you can’t go wrong with blues and greens. Greens tend to be reminiscent of abundance, renewal, and growth. Earthy browns make the room feel grounded and balanced. Greys tend to create ad calm and zen feel in the space.

High contrast colors tend to add an element of drama and surprise, which can make the room feel vibrant and alive, while more subdued tones tend to make it feel calm and peaceful. Consider the color balance and dominant colors of the rug to find one that brings you joy.

Final Thoughts

The rug is often the most important element of the room design, aside from major pieces of furniture. It will set the tone of the room, so it is important to choose one carefully. Consider the color, design, and the overall feeling that it evokes. Your first impressions are always correct when it comes to how the rug makes you feel. Nazmiyal has many bright and cheerful rugs that will make your room your happy place.
