April 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a pear or chartreuse color couch I would like to place directly on the rug along with another chair that on the gold side. Some of the other colors in the room include red and green wall paintings and tan colored drum stools. Did some research and tan is recommended which is fine, but would like some other suggestions. Creating an in home art gallery.

Hi - You sound like you are very brave with color, which is great! The thing about color is that as the eye travels around the room it needs visual "breaks" or all of the color just blends together and seems chaotic. You definitely need a neural rug to showcase the awesome couch and not take away from the colors in the artwork. Besides tan you could also do white (if you are very brave). Also take a look at the natural fiber options - sisal, seagrass and jute. They come in a range of colors in the neutral family. Have fun and good luck!

Take a look at CB2 for several rugs that might work with your color scheme. I particularly like this Hemisphere design. A photo of your furnishings would help you get more useful input.
