I would like to put a rug in the entry way or foyer. I like traditional. Need your advise on color rug that works with this dark cherry hardwood floors and does not clash with the metal art I have. Thanks!

Your palette appears very neutral. I'd just pick a rug w/ some gray to coordinate w/ your walls/carpet and/or brown to go w/ the paint. Pick a size that is 6-12" from the baseboards. Patterns are the most forgiving for high traffic areas like this.

Hi Haidy! I would definitely try to find a rug that incorporates the warm pumpkin color you have on the walls as well as the flooring. Try checking out these few rugs that would be amazing in your entryway:

I can't quite determine the size you might need based on the photo. Do you have the rough dimensions of the entryway? Maybe a 4x6 or 5x8? Or a runner might be needed.

Hope this helps! Cheers!

Need more infor for size. Do you want it to run from door to staircase? Or just by front door? Color should be black, cream, gold in a traditional design. Make it plush and use a rubber lining to keep from sliding. Pst measurements of area you want rug.

I found this small rug that I loved. The rug size is 3'3" x 4'6". Is it too small?
