Fa la la la la! It’s time to trim those trees and deck the halls, which also means your floors! Oftentimes our floors are neglected during the holiday season, but have you considered how a rug in the right colors, patterns, and material can bring your whole holiday style to life creating the winter wonderland of your dreams?
We already know that rugs add a sense of warmth and coziness year round to your home, but during the holiday season this is even more amplified. Here are a few things to consider when purchasing your new Mafi International rug for your holiday décor:
- What theme/colors are you decorating in?
- How much traffic will be coming through the area?
- How big of a rug do you need?
- How will the rug be placed in the room?
- How do you protect your rug?
Here is a little bit of holiday inspiration to help you on your decorating journey this year! And don’t forget, you can always customize your rug for a truly one-of-a-kind statement pieces with the Mafi Signature 16 series sold in our Seattle/Bellevue and Tacoma locations.
Traditional Red + Green
Unless you change your holiday decorating theme each year, chances are you have a set style you prefer. Choose a rug that you can use every year and will fit a variety of decor changes. For example, if you lean towards more traditional colors like red, green, gold, etc., choose a rug that carries similar tones, like the featured hand-spun, traditional rug.
For a more natural and rustic themed decorating style, try pairing your holiday decor with a warm neutral rug like tan or off-white. If you are using a lot of dark wood elements, this style of rug will help lighten up your overall look and remind you of sitting around the fireplace in a cozy log cabin. Choose a rug with more texture to up the cozy factor and give the appeal of your favorite cabin getaway.
The white, cream, and off-white rugs also work for a snowy winter wonderland look as well!
Merry and Bright
Forget the traditional! This fun, funky, and vibrant theme is all about making your days merry and bright. Shades of pinks, purples, greens, blue, and yellows brighten any home and we can’t help but love this fun twist on the traditional! When choosing a rug for this theme, stick with more subdued patterns and stay away from florals giving it the appearance of a spring and summer vibe. While a white rug would also work, having a pop of color can really complete the whole look. This New Zealand wool rug in turquoise has a unique texture that adds to the whimsy of this look!
Silver and Gold
Classic elegance can be found in silver and gold holiday decor. This neutral and luxurious decor has a traditional and modern appeal while remaining earthy and spirited. When choosing a rug for this theme, stick with a subdued pattern and keep it simple like this artfully crafted rug pulling in the gold and silver hues.
A neutral tan and white rug would work well with this theme as well.
No matter what theme you decide to decorate your house in this year, the Mafi International team wishes you and yours a very happy holiday season!
