Fall Trend Alert: Neutrals

For the past few years, the trendy colors have been those that pop, the brightest of the bright, but for once, this season’s hottest colors don’t steal all of the attention! This fall, the soft hued neutrals are in the spotlight!

These calming colors are showing up everywhere and are particularly popular for area rugs. What makes these colors so irresistible is that they work with virtually all décor and color palettes. A neutral area rug can be incorporated into any room and won’t limit your other design choices._DSC5972b

Another perk of adding a sophisticated neutral to your room is that it can be a source of color. Neutrals are no longer just bland tans! Nowadays, the most popular neutrals have an undertone of any range of beautiful colors. A particularly popular combination this season is grey with an undertone of blue! But, if the undertone isn’t quite enough color for you, you can always add accents throughout the room. Pillows, artwork, and other flexible pieces can add a splash of color at your whim.Capture

The absolute best part of these trendy colors is that they are actually classics! While these clean colors are particularly popular this fall, they never go out of style. Many trendy colors are forgotten about the next season, but neutrals will always be around. Picking a neutral colored area rug is about more than just staying hip this season, it’s about choosing a staple for your home for years to come.

Dover Rug & Home Hosts ArtWeek Event!

We are pleased to host “Beyond the Canvas: Inspired Ideas from Floors to Walls” on Wednesday, October 1st from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at our brand new Boston showroom 390 Stuart Street Boston, MA 02166. The event is part of ArtWeek Boston, an initiative of the Citi Performing Arts Center, whose mission is to be a champion for nonprofit innovation in Boston and provide arts and entertainment to the greater community. ArtWeek Boston is a biannual celebration of the arts and allows arts patrons of all kinds to have a unique curated experience.


In collaboration  with Connie Kolman of Kolman Artisan Glass, our event shares tips on how to push the limits of decorating with fine art and rugs. After all, how do you define Art?  With so many art forms and no distinct set of “rules,” the options for “art” are endless. We will take you through the process of choosing  “art”  that exists beyond the canvas – from floors to walls. Featuring vignettes of rugs and glass artwork, the presentation touches on color, design, and materials and delves into how unique pieces can work together.  An original piece of glass art, specifically designed to complement a one-of-a-kind rug, will be unveiled.

To further support the art community, Dover Rug & Home and Kolman Artisan Glass will donate 10% of sales on October 1st to Gateway for the Arts, a non-profit organization, providing professional development for adults with disabilities who have talent in art.

This event is free and open to the public, however advanced registration is recommended as space is limited. To register, go to: http://www.artweekboston.org/event/beyond-the-canvas-inspired-ideas-from-floor-to-walls/
