How to Decorate with Floral Rugs for Spring
Spring is fully upon us, meaning warmer days spent in the sun, April showers, and of course, flowers. These florals are popping up not just in the gardens, but in fashion and design as well. We have the perfect way for you to incorporate florals into your life this spring: use floral rugs! These pieces are graceful and soft and are the perfect touch to your interior design. Let’s explore some of the best ways to use floral rugs in your interiors.
Refreshing Decor with Floral Rugs
Just as flowers themselves represent new growth and a refreshing change after a cold winter, florals in your decor are the perfect way to refresh and change up your space. Floral rugs are the perfect way to do that, as they are not permanent, and can be easily switched out as the seasons change. They are the perfect design piece because you can either choose bold graphics and colors or subdued patterns and shades, depending on your style.
A bold floral rug can go perfectly in the center of a room, displayed as the focal point either surrounded by furniture or on its own in a space like an entryway. The best part about bold floral rugs is that there are many different looks you can create. You can make an eclectic space with a bold floral piece and bright colors on the walls and main pieces of furniture, as well as lots of other floral decorative elements. You can also, conversely, choose to keep things artsy by only using a bold floral rug, but keeping the rest of the room neutral. Toned-down, minimal floral patterned rugs can look great in all different decor styles. Depending on the floral rug you choose, it can look romantic, classic, baroque, or neutral and modern.
When you’re decorating with floral rugs, a great rule of thumb is to echo the floral patterns in your rug in some other element in your space to draw the design together. For example, choose floral wall art or wallpaper, flowing flower-like shapes in a chandelier or light fixture, or even a vase of actual flowers.
If you’re feeling creative, consider mixing florals with another pattern like geometrics. This bold look creates a confident, inspiring space for those who aren’t afraid to bend the rules a little bit. This independent look is all over Instagram and in the homes of celebrities, making it the perfect design choice for the trendsetters and creatives out there.
Many Types of Floral Rugs
Floral rugs are so much fun to design with because there are a myriad of different types to choose from. You can pick an oversized French Aubusson floral piece, perfect for French provincial or Rococo decor, and in rooms like the dining room. The graphic floral prints on many Romanian Bessarabian kilims give a playful and artsy, yet refined, vibe to the space you’re decorating. These often are woven in a runner or wide gallery length and would look great in a hallway. The intricate, detailed floral patterns on many Tabriz rugs are regal and luxurious, making them a stunning piece for spaces like a home office or a well decorated master bedroom.
Looking for all-over patterned florals with swirling, dreamy shapes? Persian Khorassan rugs are the perfect piece for this, often containing exactly that look in neutral colors, perfect to accent a more subtle, minimal decor. There are many, many beautiful antique and vintage rug styles available today with the most stunning floral designs, in such a wide variety that you are sure to find the perfect one regardless of your design tastes.
