Using Rugs To Add Color And Transform Your Home Decor

Adding Color An Updating Your Interior Design With A Chic Rug

Like a leap into freedom, interior design and home decor has finally rediscovered color

Using rugs to add color and transform your home decor – According to Vogue, 2022 marks the end of dreary gray and uninspiring beige. It is now the time of rebirth as an exuberant new trend of bright hues mixed with natural tints, rich jewel tones and enticing, sensual blends of textures and form. As the world recalibrates in a new era shaped by the life changes wrought by Covid – more time at home, more time with family, the need for flexible spaces and a desire for visual warmth – interior designers are finding new ways to bring versatility, coziness, and joyousness into every room. With a profusion of color, patterned fabrics and creative mixes of eras and styles (contemporary art with family heirloom area rugs and furnishings; exotic reminders of foreign travel combined with local craftsmanship), 2022’s interiors are as welcoming as they are functional.

Yet while most of us are thirsty for that kind of change and eager for a new style blast to freshen up our lives, such a total re-imagining of our homes isn’t always practical. Reupholstering an entire living room set? Repainting all the rooms? Disposing of the lifeless gray coffee and end tables and replacing them with sunny Giallo travertine or jewel-toned Moroccan mosaics?

There is an easier way. Anyone can easily update their interior without remodeling or even redecorating — just by adding the right rugs or replacing the old one you currently have.

The results can be truly transformative. An all-white living area, for instance, gains new warmth and luxury with the garnet reds and soft greens of an antique Agra Indian rug, while the bird-and-floral patterns add a delightful whimsy; the floors of a cool modernist dining room spring to life with stylized botanicals in gold and terracotta against a rich, deep blue-black.

Or add some real “wow” factor with the bold reds and yellows and jewel-like violets and organic botanical designs of a stunning, Art Deco rug. And how better to greet the morning than with the lush claret tones, subtle arabesques details, and luscious textures of a ruby-and-gold Art Nouveau carpet beneath your feet?

Other possibilities might include a new foyer entryway rug in the dark, forest greens, and soft salmon to set the mood as you first enter the front door like those we see in antique Caucasian Karabagh carpets for example. Rugs can help reflect the trends in natural colors and forms. In addition, by incorporating varied pieces from different rug origins, especially if thy are antique rugs, or even vintage rugs, you can instantly recall exotic feel of mystical far away and romantic foreign lands.

Similarly, a new updated staircase runner rug – perhaps on of the bright, geometric Scandinavian rugs, with more colorful blocks of happy reds, blues, greens, and yellows will bring an inviting and chic new updated look to your entire home.

But even smaller size area rugs can be just the accent you need to update a room – either placed alone in a small, uncarpeted area or layered over another rug to define a space (and add a bit more on-trend texture). That all-beige study with its pale, cream color area carpet? Snap it to life with a cheerful art rug, like those magnificent art rugs by Pablo Picasso. That new home office off the kitchen? Definite it and make it your happy place with something like unexpected like those captivating Israeli Bezalel rugs, with their mesmerizing and out-of-the-box approach to patterns that are at once floral and abstract, tantalizing and yet soothing all at once.

What’s more, we at Nazmiyal Rugs, have enabled a augmented reality type feature that lets you “see” the rugs in your home before you buy them. With this feature you can see and buy your rugs online without ever leaving your house. Just upload a photo of any room to our augmented reality app and click on the carpet of your choice. The app also allows you to move the rug around the room, making it possible to position your rugs in different areas of the room , test the how different size area rugs will fit and orient them inside the room itself (does it work better on a diagonal? A little closer to the window?). So play around, and discover how the right area rug can give you a fresh new updated home — a new mood, a new style, and a welcoming new chic — to welcome a fresh New Year.
