Hi all! It’s Mari from Arcadian Home blog, a wonderful place to find beautiful home decor inspirations. I’m so excited to be visiting here at Blue Bergitt today. Sonjia, thanks for having me.
Today, my guest post is about the beauty of color on the floor. With seemingly endless possibilities, it was difficult to choose just a few, but here are eight clever ways to give interior spaces a boost with color underfoot. Please enjoy!
This first room seems to fit right into our topic with three large area rugs laid down in an open living space. Though totally different in pattern, this trio looks quit charming together.
The rusty hues of a speckled cowhide on the floor coordinate beautifully with those of the wall art and carved wood sculptures. A feather pendant light adds an appealing contrast to the design.
For a lovely cottage look, a hand-painted or stenciled wood floor can be perfect underfoot. This one goes decidedly feminine with a soft pink background.
A single solid paint color can be used to add a more formal look. A minty hue on both floor and ceiling brings unity to this living room.
Here, a glossy jewel tone blue adds a happy vibe to a tiny under-the-stairs dining space. I’m intrigued by the clever way the light fixture is hung.
Color doesn’t always have to be bright or high contrast to be beautiful on the floor. This area rug is lovely with a pale calligraphy pattern that mimics the graffiti†wall art.
Black and white squares are exceptionally versatile on the floor. The pattern and color is gorgeous in marble for an elegant entry or in rugged tiles or paint for a hard-working laundry room as seen here.
In the image above, black and white stripped rugs bring color interest and texture to dark wood floors. A splash of orange paint on one wall adds a cheerful touch.†Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4†|†5 |†6†| 7 | 8
