Rugs in open floor plans help visually create rooms where there are no walls. But of course, since the rugs in these spaces are in plain sight of one another, you’ll want to coordinate them. I Wrote a post about this very topic Back in 2017, and I stand by all of the advice you shared. However, since this is still a question that pops up in my inbox on a regular basis, I thought I’d share some fresh ideas.
I’ve never been one to believe there is a “right or wrong” in design. In my opinion, there is only what your eye prefers. And preference is personal. For the most part, in my own open floor plan home, I approach coordinating rugs the same way I do mixing patterns in general. And if you’ve been here for any length of time, you know I am love mixing styles! Tried and true combination for me is Any black and white/ivory geometric is paired with almost any other pattern.
I feel black and white geometric patterns are my go-to denim jacket. They always seem to work.
While I love the contrast my geometry adds, I’m not afraid of pairing Two patterns are the same as long as the scale (pattern size) is different..
Here the antique runner in my kitchen has a larger-than-life pattern in contrast to the petite pattern of the antique area rug in my butler’s pantry, and what marries the two is a bold red and blue color palette.
However, on the other side of this open space, I’m breaking the “style-mixing rules” by pairing two styles to scale. But while the dining room rug is also a large-scale pattern, it works because it pulls off the lighter shade of the runner making the pattern more subdued.
And since there is not much contrast in the color palette Dining room rugthe rug roughly reads as a solid colour.
In design, rules are meant to be broken. 😉 But I know coordinating rugs in open floor plans can be a little tricky, so I’ve rounded up some of the most perfect pairs.
1. This Brown and ivory square rug It is a softer take on geometric black and white. It will play well with many different styles, but I especially like it Such beauty.
2. You can perfectly pair two types of geometries, just change the scale of the patterns. neutral tones for Hepworth And Hess Rugs are never boring together.
3. I love the muted tones of this one medium size Patterned rug associated with this Widely stunning.
4. I’ve always loved a harmonious look, especially in red! price for this size Persian vintage It’s so good, and I love that it’s paired with that big of a punch An ancient Turkish runner.
5. It’s bold Navy and ivory runner It’s so much fun paired with this Morrocan vintage. I love how the v-runner design plays with the area rug’s diamond pattern.
6. This pairing proves that monochrome doesn’t have to be boring. It turns out that texture is just as important as style! this square rug It comes in several different colors as this does Washable solid rug.
7. This Geometric shaggy runner She keeps the feminine color palette for this Antique Turkish rug From the feeling of sweetness.
8. As I mentioned earlier, you can’t really go wrong with a Geometric black and cream/ivory They are greatly coupled anything!
I hope these pairs help you feel more confident coordinating rugs in your home!
