What color should my rug be?

Since a rug serves to anchor the room, the color and style of your rug can establish the mood. Dark, rich colors help define a more intimate space while lighter colors make a smaller space appear larger. Spicy hues such as yellow, orange or red add warmth while cool colors create calm, especially in a sunny room.

If your furniture is a solid color, match their hue to a patterned area rug choice.

For a sophisticated look, match a secondary color within a patterned Oriental rug to your sofa.

Also, what color rug should I get with a brown couch? While there are no limits on color, cream, rust, deep red, blue-gray and natural shades often go well with brown.
