Need help with carpet color selection
May 2, 2012 in Design Dilemma
This is a guest bedroom 15 by 13. It has good light. I have chosen a bold wallpaper for accent wall. It has a deep purple back ground with large flowers and vines. The print is bold but simple in the lines. Flowers are a mother of pearl color with a slight sheen and the vines are taupe. I have chosen the taupe for the other three walls and wood work is painted a creamy white. I am stumped on carpet color.... should I go light to tie in with the lighter shades or is it better to ground the room with a darker carpet? Thank you!

I would recommend a very light hard wood floor like a clear natural maple with an offwhite area rug. If you've absolutely decided on wall to wall carpet, I'd go light - again with the creamy white color. If you have young children or pets that make a mess, perhaps do a lighter shade of taupe to hide stains better. If not - GO LIGHT. Hope that helps.
