Perhaps it’s because green is the most prominent and frequent color found in nature that the human eye can see more green than any other color. However, the reason for being honored as the color of the year was the fitting representation it held for that time; Emerald Green is the color of prosperity, renewal, and growth. Also, green is the symbolic color for unification and healing.
So if you’re looking to decorate your home with accessories, Emerald Green accessories, such as Area Rugs, are a fitting and appropriate choice.
A patterned green rug works in a decorating scheme with numerous other solid shades in the room to offset the busyness. Unless, of course, the goal is an extreme-victorian design where energetic patterns everywhere are the norm. Use a pattern to draw the eye to an area – that’s the best way to think of patterns when you select them.
Plaid rugs look fantastic with wood furnishings, especially deep vibrant colors. When using a lighter shade of wood furnishings, it looks lovely but becomes more of a contrast. For example, the jump from a light-colored wood floor to a dark patterned rug is a bold contrast – almost color blocking with furnishings – so it boils down to taste. When the colors blend, as in, a dark emerald plaid rug and dark shaded floors, the look tends to give an overall vibrant, warmer feel.
There are many shades of green to choose from
Often making a choice depends on whether or not there’s an existing green shade in the room. If the shade of green already in the room is in a prominent place, like the walls or furnishings, then it’s critical to find the right tone for the floor. In cases like this, it’s smart to go with a contrasting color rather than trying to match shades directly. Of course, there’s the option of choosing a patterned rug with some green in it.
