Neutral Doesn't Have to Equal Boring

Many times I hear people tell me how boring neutral is – how much somebody must lack in imagination to keep everything in their home neutral – well I am here to tell you that there are both creative and exciting ways to be neutral. With the use of layering and textures, neutrals and a monochromatic décor can be invigorating and challenging. You don’t have to use bright and brilliant to make a statement, you can easily incorporate neutral case goods, soft goods, accessories, lamps and area rugs into your home and be as exciting as those who do it with color. Just remember that being neutral and exciting takes a bit more work.

I’ve picked out some of my favorite tone on tone, neutral and beige rugs to give you some ideas on how area rugs can help you with this decorating choice. Keep in mind that one of the hottest trends right now is the all white room – now this may not work if you are a busy family with small children, but the principals of a monochromatic neutral room can work just as easily with kid friendly shades of grey or beige as they can with white.

Do you want to be eco-friendly AND have a great neutral rug; you should take a look at the Oceans of Time collection of area rugs from Abbyson. The Caspian Deep Ecru area rug has great textures; great tonal values and is made from 100% organic Himalayan sheep’s wool and vegetable dyes. This area rug gives you great geometric design, but keeps the color tones simple and muted – a great addition to any room in which you want to relax.

How about a cheap rug that gives you a traditional look but keeps the color palette neutral? The Embraceable area rug from Fashion Source in Linen gives you both. The kid-friendly area rug is made from 100% polypropylene making it both easy on the eyes and easy to clean. Fashion Source if full of area rugs like this that give you great value and instant style. These rugs are frugal – cheap rugs that also give you great value.

Finally, let me go the complete opposite direction and show you a rug that is vibrant, exciting but is very neutral. This Aadi rug from Chandra gives you a great contemporary rug; great contemporary design but gives you a color range that is neutral and easy to incorporate into your home. You would have a very tough time calling this rug boring! Hand-loomed from 100% New Zealand wool you are getting an area rug that will last a lifetime and with such a striking design you’ll need a lifetime to completely enjoy it.

Hopefully I have given you some ideas of how fun and interesting neutrals can be – we have thousands of rugs on Rugs to My Door that allow you to change up your rooms with exciting neutral rugs – jut take a look.
