Too many times, designers like myself like to pull the colors from a rug. They make a great base point for composing a color palette, while they frame and help pull together various elements in a room. The style of the rug also dictates how loud or quiet the room style turns out to be.

It is thus, ideal for anyone seeking some inspiration on rugs before buying.
