No Neutrals Allowed: Rugs That Will Brighten Your Decor

  • Copy by: Jacqueline DeMarco

When it comes to making a big decor decision (choosing a paint color or buying a couch), it makes sense to play it safe color-wise. No one wants to spend an entire weekend repainting because they woke up one day and realized that red just wasn’t the right color.

Rugs are the perfect way to add a little color in your space. Even the brightest rug won’t be overbearing because they are not at your eye line. We say it’s time to ditch your neutral rug for one that will brighten your home decor.
