Faded Vintage Rugs
The term 'faded vintage rugs' implies a decor trend from the past. A trend most likely to be found in homes of times gone by that has potentially fallen out of favour with the likes of new popular trends like Industrial, Scandinavian and Bohemian styles of decor. This sentiment couldn't be further from the truth.
Vintage style rugs not only fall right at the heart of these trends but often are the single most important part of the room; the item that sets the tone; the item that adds that all important 'whack' of comfort underfoot.
Faded vintage rugs vary in styles, patterns and of course, colours. Whereas geometric flat weave rugs opt for bolder colour palettes, vintage rugs make full use of dusty blues, greens, pinks, blacks and greys. Pick your colour wisely to accentuate and accessorise the rest of the room.
To add a vintage style rug to a space is to add a degree of sophistication and opulence to the decor. Another advantage is, of course, comfort. In Scandinavian and industrial home decor, the trend is to go for beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the home. Wooden flooring looks beautiful, however, can lack comfort and homeliness. This is where a vintage area rug is always a great choice. A vintage faded rug is far more stylish than a fluffy carpet and goes some way to add a degree of comfort - retaining that all-important sense of cosiness to your home.
Varying styles and colours of living room rugs and hallway rugs offer different ways to accessorise your home. For a stark contrast and a heady dose of industrial style, opt for a rug like the Soho. This black area rug offers a bold punch of colour which injects character and style to a room yet retains ornate patterns which keep things classy and sophisticated.
If you wish to accessorise your space with something a little less ostentatious, the Brooklyn grey vintage rug may be just the right choice. By using a slightly less pronounced colour palette, this vintage faded rug blends a little more seamlessly with the rest of your decor, allowing the rooms features to shine.
If the style and comfort are two of the most important factors in your home style, the addition of a vintage style rug is always going to be a good choice.
