What color rugs go best with dark hardwood floors
August 29, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I'm trying to determine what color area rug would mesh well withdining room (and subsequently the living room), I'm thinking about designing the room around the rug and its colors but so far that has been the hardest part. FLOR seems to have decent rugs, any suggestions either from the FLOR catalog or just colors in general?

I'm in my late twenties, so something relatively contemporary but elegant enough for a small family (wife and son) would be nice.

It looks like your home has some great vintage features so I would stick with a more transitional rug style as opposed to the more contemporary FLOR carpet tile. In my opinion your flooring choice will ground your room and direct color choices for your walls. If you desire a more youthful look you will probably want to update the chandelier as well. This Morrocan tile pattern might be a style that would lend itself to the relaxed elegance you desire.

hmm, I never really thought about it that way but it makes sense. Get my furnishings first and then work around that.


The vintage features really add a nice touch to the space and it sounds like it'd be better to embrace them rather than to look for something that really doesn't go well with them. I like the sample you've shown (unfortunately it's sold out); I'm going to start looking at furniture and work from there.

ebordnenave, the shape of your dining room looks like it might lend itself to a round table. This one from west elm has a great lines without looking stuffy. If you like the tile rug, take a look at Home Decorators. You can search for rugs by color and I think they have something very similar. http://www.westelm.com/products/arc-base-pedestal-table-g490/?pkey=cdining-tables
