Get the Look: 20 Almost Solid Color Rugs

Almost a year ago we repainted our family room in Benjamin Moore Steel Wool, which I detailed in a Family Room Makeover post. We hung different artwork as planned, but I never got around to choosing a new rug. Now that our older son, who likes to use the floor as a picnic blanket, is in boarding school, I feel a little more comfortable splurging on a new rug.

It should be an almost solid color rug, but not quite. It should have some variegated color, but not actual texture. The rug we have now is chunky and loopy, and I imagine the crumbs embedded in it could feed a family of four for a month. (Yeah, we’re gross.)

The room is a narrow rectangle with a slightly odd extension off one side and a bay window on the other. I’ve often thought about having a rug custom cut, but not sure if I can bear the expense. Here are 20 almost solid color, not quite patterned but not completely plain rugs.

Scheming: Patterned Rugs for the Living Room in Florida

As you know, I’ve been fixing up our condo in Florida. Now that the walls are white, the cork flooring is installed, and the furniture is in place, it’s time to start thinking about rugs. Colorful patterned rugs.

Wayfair provided me with the perfect incentive, a $100 gift certificate for myself and an exclusive promo code for you. The promo code (RUGLUV33) is valid from today through Monday,  7/31/14 — 8/4/14. StyleCarrot readers get 15 percent off all area rugs with promo code RUGLUV33

I’m hoping to find a rug (or two) for Florida. I’ve created living room schemes with seven different rug options, all pulled from Wayfair. Working off  the artwork and pillows, I’ve chosen pink, orange, and coral colored patterned rugs. I’d love to hear your input. Comments please. (And, if you find any rugs for yourself, feel free to ask me to have a look.)

Airy Living Room With Cork Floor

Here’s the new cork floor in the living room. Plus Oakley, our cat.
(See Tuesday’s post for more cork floors.)

Organic Moroccan Patterned Living Room Rug

Safavieh Moroccan Rug

I love the naturalistic, mountain design as well as the colors. It’s inspired by the classic Beni Ourain rugs woven by nomadic tribes in Morocco’s Atlas mountain region, but doesn’t feel too of-the-moment thanks to its white and pink palette. It’s a top choice. Plus, my 12-year old son, and more importantly, my husband, are ok with it.

It’s a knotted piece that’s 80 percent viscose and 20 percent cotton, which gives me some pause. Anybody have experience with viscose rugs in terms of durability and feel?

Pricing: 6×9 $1,208.84; 8×10 $1,765.35; 9×12 $2,435.80

Small Scale Geometric Living Room Rug

Safavieh Tiny Diamond Rug

I chose this for it’s coral color and small scale, subtle pattern. (I’m kind of over large scale, bold geometrics.) It’s listed as being part of a bath mat collection, though comes is full room sizes. It’s cotton, from India, and looks wonderfully soft.

Pricing: 5×8 $205.12; 8×10 $430.50

Modern Floral Living Room Rug

Surya Bombay Floral Rug

This ivory rug with its bold hot pink bloom could be really fun. Almost like having another pillow and/or artwork on the floor. It’s a tufted rug in 100 percent, hand-spun New Zealand wool and there are plenty of sizes to choose from.

My husband probably isn’t all that keen on it, (it IS quite the explosion of pink), so I’m going to put the aqua version in rotation as a choice for the bedroom.

Pricing: 5×8 $712.20; 8×11 $1,566.60; 9×13 $2,293.80

Ikat Pattern Living Room Rug

Jaipur Rugs Maroc Tribal Rug

I was planning to avoid the been-there, done-that ikats, but this particular design appeals to me for its simple, blurred-edge pattern and soft coral color scheme. It’s a flat-woven wool rug from India, which means its reversible, durable, and really well priced.

Pricing: 5×8 $322; 8×10 $644; 9×12 $956

Organic Moroccan Patterned Living Room Rug

Capel Fortress Trellis Rug

A more geometric take on a Moroccan style Beni Ourain rug. This one handmade in India from knotted 100 percent wool. I like the subtle color palette, which, along with the orderly pattern, works well with the colorful artwork and accessories. Top contender for sure, and again, my son and husband like it too.

Pricing: 7×9 $1347.75; 8×11 $1797.75

Pink Ombre Fade Living Room Rug

nuLOOM Moderna Morderna Ombre Rug

This 100 percent tufted wool from India is probably too pink for the rest of the family, but I love ombré. I especially like the dot string pattern that runs across half of it. Another problem: it’s only available in a tiny size.

Pricing: 3×5 $124

Geometric Ikat Chevron Pattern Area Rugs

Capel Cococozy Twirl Rug  +  Surya Frontier Ikat Rug

I know, I  know, I said I was over geometric and global prints. I totally am, but couldn’t resist layering these bold designs. The larger twirl pattern rug is made with knotted 100 percent New Zealand semi-worsted wool with an Indo-Tibetan weave, and the ikat is a woven flat weave wool rug from India.

It’s probably better to have the flat woven on the bottom, but I’m not really going with this scheme, as fun as it is.

Twirl pricing: 5×8 $1,797.75; 7×9 $2,922.75; 8×11 $3,822.75
Ikat pricing: 3 1/2×5 $202.20; 5×8 $345; 8×11 $760.20

Jute Natural Fiber Rug In Red

LR Resources Natural Fiber Rug

Wayfair has a pretty varied assortment of natural jute and sisal rugs too. This one is a bit on the red side, but I really like the pattern. The price points on the jute and sisal rugs are quite good, but I think we want to be cozier in the living room. However, there’s an interesting jagged chevron jute rug that resembles deep teal ocean waves that I’m considering for the boys’ room.

Pricing: 7’9″x9’9″ $340; 9’2″x12’6″ $570

Get the Look: Patterned Rugs

Here’s an assortment of amazing rugs in a wide range of price points. Some you’ve surely seen before, but I love them so much that I couldn’t leave them out. I recently purchased one of these rugs for our playroom-turning-family room. It has lots of colors, the pattern is more geometric than free form, and it’s not expensive. Anyone wanna guess? (There’s a clue in the Montage: Patterned Rugs post.) Also, look for a couple of designs for which you see the original and it’s much lower priced knock-off. (Hint: They’re both stripey.)

Covet: Missoni Rugs

A brightly patterned rug is a quick and easy way to spruce up a plain space. I’ve been coveting the swirly Paul Smith design by The Rug Company for years, but its sky high price tag makes it the stuff of dreams. Last week I heard from Caroline Morson of the impeccable, high end Boston furniture showroom, The Morson Collection, about her fab finds at the Milan Furniture Fair this spring – the new collection of rugs by Missoni Home. They are insanely colorful and outrageously fun. And, yes, pricey too, though some more than others. Still a splurge, but a do-able one. I found a few additional styles from the collection at other online sources too. Thou shall covet. And cover thy floor.
