My space is neutral. What rug to choose?


Reader's question:

"In my living room the draperies are beige (in the tone of the sand) and the walls are white. I would like advice on the color and the patterns of the rug. I am 22 and I want something modern"

Our answer:

From your description we understand that the style of your space is neutral without much color. So, if you want to add something modern and fresh in your space, a good option could be a large rug with colorful strips.

The vigorous colors will add energy and freshness into the living room while the strips will create a geometric, "austere" and modern surface on the floor.
