First time homeowner choosing her first area rug, advice appreciated!

amysuebarchFebruary 1, 2013
Hi all,

I having been living in my house for over two years with no rug in my living room. I finally have saved my pennies and now I'm ready for the long awaited purchase! My wall color and couch colors are pretty neutral as you can see, so I'm thinking of getting a colorful rug to brighten it up. But then again, maybe not! As you can see, I'm undecided. Any advice? My main accent color is turquoise, and my style is modern and graphic. Four pics of my living room are below, as well the rug I'm considering purchasing in turquoise from Garnet Hill.

Thank you!

Yes, you need color in the rug - don't hang back! I advise where you can shop by color, style, material, etc. My clients have been happy with their selections from there.

Congratulations on being a first-time homeowner! I think a brightly colored rug would look great, and maybe add a few complementary accent pillows to the couch as well. I've had good luck getting nice-quality rugs for reasonable prices at HomeGoods or TJ Maxx. The best part about an area rug is that you can buy it, bring it home and try it, and if you don't like it, just take it back and try again!
