The new year always brings in fresh trends, colors, and opportunity. Take advantage of it and think of it as a clean slate to branch out and try new colors in your home — you never know what you might fall in love with! Here are a few upcoming rug trends to keep in mind for 2015:

1. Botanical and Earthy Pattern

Rugs with subtle earthy patterns and floral themes are on the rise. For a room with muted tones, choose a rug that will stand out or complement the dominant colors in that space.

2. Renaissance Colors

Renaissance patterns combine the perfect mixture of beige, maroon, green, and hints of blue. They add a strong accent to any room and look beautiful as a hallway focal point or a sophisticated addition to a dining room or a living room.

The contrast between the hard tile floor and the soft rug creates a beautifully antique feel that will pair well with dark cherry woods and golden decorations. 

3. Bold Shapes and Colors

Carpets and rugs with bold shapes will never go out of style. They are a staple for any household with a modern edge to it and they are sure to catch the eye of your guests.

Since most modern styled rooms are daring, rugs with bold patterns on an understated backdrop work well. Experimenting with contemporary rooms is fun; allow yourself to take risks.

3. Warm Colors

Warm colors add a comfortable and hospitable feel to any space. The deep red area rug foils the cool blue tiles and lively seating area in what would otherwise be a very barren room.

Look for dark reds, deep oranges, or mustard yellow area rugs to add to your office, library, or workspace. These colors are not only the primary warm colors, but they are also known to promote productivity and concentration; therefore they are ideal for office environments.

5. Outdoor Rugs

Outdoor rugs are becoming a very common addition to patios and porches. They tie together your outdoor furniture and create the illusion of a separate space.

During the summer, nautical patterns colors such as light tan, navy blue, and green pair well with common deck furniture. If you’re going for a more rustic look, experiment with deep reds and olive greens.

Guests are sure to notice these easy changes to your interior and exterior. Do not be afraid to take a risk when it comes to your rugs, just a simple color change can make all the difference to your space.
