Need help with finding an area rug for my sunroom

jainahMay 3, 2012
Bright, large sunroom with hardwood floors,yellow walls, white woodwork and cabinetry, white couch, one slipper chair upholstered with floral fabric /robins egg blue background, white rocker with matching floral upholstered cushion, banquet and upholstered armchair (missing in photo....being repaired) in blue chenille (blue matches background blue of floral fabric)....The oriental doesn't work there, but we don't like sisal....don't care for solid wool rug either....any ideas for an area rug pattern or style?

How about a cheerful stripe? This rag rug ties in with your sunny yellow walls, blue cushions and cottage floral print. http://www.homedecorators.com/P/Seascape_Rectangular_Braided_Area_Rug/610/

I like the black and white kilm rugs that are popular today, which will make the yellow walls sing and work well with the blue and pattern pieces. See:

I really like the idea of stripes - a perfect compliment to the cottage style of the room. Here a few more I think would work:

Dash and Albert has a line of affordable, fun rugs that would look fresh in your room. There are wonderful options in custom sizing broadloom goods depending on what your budget is for the project.

If you have a favorite patterned fabric you would like to introduce you can have an area rug bordered with the fabric, perhaps adding some nailheads for even more detail.

I love the stripe and kilim ideas! To go another route, how about a fun geometric? I've attached a link from Fabrica, a broadloom carpet that can be customized to any size. It is perfect for a high traffic area and very durable for a sunroom. The blue and cream color palette will look amazing in your room!

Here's another blue and cream rug idea to go with your room colors, just in case you want a little bit of a pattern:
