Decorating for the Spring with a Natural Rug

2 2

It is almost time for that spring cleaning and redecoration.  You can freshen up any look in your home after the cold and dark winter with quite a few things.  From the kitchen to the bedroom and every room in between, let’s take a peek at what changes you can make without breaking the bank.

Kitchens are probably the easiest room to decorate for spring and it only takes a few key items.  You can start with putting a set of country looking canisters right on your countertops and then take your tired old kitchen rugs and replace them with some natural fiber ones.  Put one right in front of your sink and maybe one in front of the stove too.  If you have a table in your kitchen, add a rug under the table too.  Just make sure with that one that it is large enough to still be under the chairs when they are pulled out.  Jute is a great natural fiber for kitchen area rugs and a jute rug will go with nearly every type of décor that is already in place.

Bedroom

BEDROOM

In the bedroom you can pack all of those dark colors and heavy fabrics that were ideal for snuggling in the long winter nights away.  They will be out of place in the spring.  Get out the lighter, bright colors for the bed and window dressings and consider putting a natural fiber rug on the floor.  Sisal rugs are great for use in the bedroom and they can be just the thing that you need to tie the look of the room together.

Entryway

ENTRY WAY

Now, entryways ae where your guests will get their first impression of your home.  It is also an area that will see a lot of traffic.  A seagrass rug might work ideally here.  Not only will it look amazing, it will also be able to stand up to the traffic.  You can get a seagrass rug in natural colors and patterns and it will impress all of your guests as soon as they see it.  Aside from the rug, add some flowers – fresh or faux – in spring looking containers and put them on the table in your entryway or right in the windowsill for a pop of color.

Color palettes that are inspired by nature will allow for you to layer a variety of shades to create a look that is unique.  This means that any type of natural fiber rug will be great in the living room.  Colors like ivory and wheat make it incredibly easy to combine many different shades of greens, terra cottas and more.  Put a natural rug in a corner and put a little pedestal table and a wingback chair on it to make a quaint little reading corner.  You can also use an area rug in the center of the room to beautifully bring the entire look together.

As you can see, it is quite easy to use an area rug in any room in the house for your spring decorating.
