Question:

What color area rug with red drapes?

I am moving into a new house and the landlord left his red curtains behind and I do not plan on replacing them. What color throw rug can I purchase to match them? My couch is a tan color and I usually like neutral tones, which is probably why the red curtains are throwing me off. Any suggestions? (Would like a rug that would work with several color schemes)

Answer:

Purchase a rug that you love to match your own furnishings in your desired color pallet. It will be your rug long after the red drapes are a memory, so ignore the drapes you do not like when selecting the rug. However, to incorporate the red drapes while spending a minimum amount of effort and money, just go out and purchase a couple of pillows that have slight red accents and place them on the couch. Purchase a red candle, put it on the coffee table and you are done with the red. Pillows in your color scheme are available at Pier One in many sizes and styles. See? It is that easy. Don't over think it.

you can stick with neutral tones. The throw rug doesn't need to have red in it. But your curtains make a room and red does seem like a very bizarre color.

I okorder.com for area rugs. Lots of choices and shipping is only $2.95. I would pick a carpet you like and not necessarily with red in it if you don't like it. Maybe a darker taupe? Depends on what the flooring is. To unify the red curtains in the room use other decor like framed pictures, pillows, a throw, lamp shades (can spray paint them if they are a smooth surface-not tufted or gathered in some way), a runner across your coffee table, etc.

You could get an oriental rug that has some sort of red/tan design on it. Those colors seem to be pretty common for throw rugs.

I think a Black/Ivory persian design area rug should be a good choice. It would give the room a royal look. let me know if you need a black background and ivory border rug for cheap price. I have one handmade rug so can sell it to you if you like one. call:9172800156
