Nothing really says at home but to take your shoes off. When you enter the door, turn on the kettle and throw your feet on the sofa. We only do this in our own homes. Like running barefoot in the grass, there is something so fundamental about throwing off your shoes after a long day at work. The same call prompts us to give up our soft sofas and cozy ottomans to lie on the floor. With the right living room rugs, we don’t have to give up comfort for a seat on the floor. And although we prefer to choose the chair, the materials of the earth and the natural geometry will always reside under our feet.
Rugs are a perfect way to add a touch of color and texture that is wearable and easily interchangeable. Not like bringing back that dark navy blue wall you thought you’d like to go back to white or trying to bring back the oversized sofa in this online store. Besides adding warmth, rugs can really anchor a space and give it a cohesive look by linking all the elements in a room together. But just because it could serve as an aesthetic glue, don’t feel like you have to stick to the designated color scheme. In fact, it’s best to choose colors that complement each other but don’t necessarily coordinate with the colors in your room.
So we’ve picked a few of our favorites to bring the comfort of the earth and the hope of spring indoors.
