Choosing the correct designer rug for your room can be tricky and colour is one of the key aspects to be considered. Blending soft neutral shades with bolder hues in geometric patterns creates a gorgeous balance and can be used to great effect, bringing a feeling of depth and dimension as well as a striking focal point into the heart of your room. Eye-catching geometrics, such as the Gandia Blasco Hand Tufted Mosaic Grey Rug, draws the eye and adds designer flair to your space with its repeating pattern.

Muted neutral hues are among the most popular choice as these work with many schemes and add comfort and texture without detracting from the rest of the room’s design. A simple, natural hued rug is an ideal addition if the sofa and soft furnishings in the room are already busy or highly patterned too.

Designer rugs in shades of taupe, sand and grey are also a popular choice as they work well in areas that have a lot of traffic such as hallways and living rooms. The natural shades will generally wear well and will not show dirt.

For a bolder choice that will bring a burst of colour and a splash of seasonal style to your room’s interior, look out for rugs featuring beautiful floral prints. We love the Bluebellgray Christine Rug which brings a more subtle edge to florals for those who prefer a simpler, more pared back interior look.

As well as colour and patterns, the depth of a rug’s pile and the material it’s made of can bring a whole new dimension to your room’s interior. The luxurious New Zealand wool pile of the Eichholtz Apollo Rug brings an opulent edge to an interior space and the classic Greek key pattern creates a modern, geometric aspect to the look.
