Building a room around a rug is a classic design mantra. To select one rug that pulls off just the right look – whether it be cottage style or even farmhouse formal – consider the texture, shape, size and palette. Bold solid colors or muted melanges, soft wool or versatile polypropylene or jute, traditional rectangles or eye-catching circles – these are all choices that can help steer your living room toward either cozy or dramatic. Our Cottage Home designers suggest laying out newspaper on the floor to simulate the size of the rug to help you pick the right dimensions.
For a calming environment, choose a rug with serene hues of the sea and sandy beach. The above gallery of calming colors such as natural, seafoam, driftwood, ivory and citrus shows a selection of fabrics that complement a popular Cottage Home beach cottage rug – the Caribbean Sea Pottery Braided Indoor/Outdoor Rug. This rug comes in several colors and is easy to care for. Each fabric in our Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture Collection can be purchased by the yard or used to cover one of our sofas, chairs or ottomans.
