Cornucopias and kaleidoscopes of colors make an area bright, inviting, playful, and unique. Colorful area rugs bring light and variety into a dull space that needs some energy. From natural multi-color rugs to synthetic rugs, beautiful jewel tones help make a room come alive. Consider the many ways to use a colorful rug to dress up a previously forgotten space and give it new life.
No matter what your theme may be, from traditional to contemporary, colorful rugs can make themselves at home in your space. These rugs fit right in in a room full of neutral colors with white or gray walls, but they also find common ground with other bright colors and patterns. Whether you want a matching pattern or prefer a bohemian vibe with multiple patterns and colors, bright multi-colored area rugs boost your mood and can make the darker months of the year easier to live through.
Rooms have a way of helping to make blay days feel bright. Natural light and vibrant, breathing colorful patterns, paired with the right throw pillows and a colorful afghan throw, can make a bedroom or living room a positive environment.
Make Use of the Many Possible Patterns in Multi-Colored Rugs
Colorful rugs bring versatility and warmth to the party, and they are made even more vibrant when they incorporate the different patterns available these days. These rugs can set the tone or match the pre-existing mood in the room. With the following patterns available, you can pick the kind of adventure you want your room to take you on:
Floral rugs: Everyone loves a well-tended, colorful garden in the spring and summertime. Fortunately, these colors and shapes can last the whole year in your bedroom and kitchen, bringing green and pink, blue and yellow to a room and offering a cheery floral atmosphere no matter what the weather.
With materials like wool or synthetic material, these rugs can also be durable and keep their color for as long as they are needed. Rugs like this Katrina Blooming Rosette Area Rug in purple offer bright, vibrant colors and unique shapes in a gentle fashion.
Striped rugs: Chevrons, pinstripes, and candy stripes lend themselves to rainbows of bright colors.

Think of them as the spoonful of sugar that introduces you to new flavors.

Use Colorful Rug Styles from Around the World
Colorful rugs can come in all different styles from around the globe and throughout the centuries. Whether you want a vintage style to work with your room or a global influence to bring something different into your contemporary design, splashes of color can come into your room in an orderly yet multi-cultural fashion. Here are some rug styles to consider from different cultures around the world:
Persian rugs: Persian rugs are works of art, incorporating jewel tones and floral, symmetrical designs into unique shapes with natural or synthetic textures. These rugs bring classic sophistication into a room to offer a timeless variety of colors to work with.
This Distressed Persian Area Rug in pink fits with all forms of style, from traditional to transitional. Whether you want to play with the reds, the blues, or the yellows in this complex piece, opportunity awaits in every room.

Rugs like this Iris Fading Oriental Medallion Area Rug in navy keep your room sophisticated while providing variety and contrast in an elevated yet faded fashion.
Moroccan rugs: Thick colorful shags with symmetrical diamond patterns and colors bring vibrant bright echoes into your room while also providing soft landing pads for you and your family. These rugs typically have simple designs to appear unassuming but match the undertones of yellow and pink with throw pillows or a bright ottoman to really make their pattern pop.
Rugs like this Moroccan Diamond Area Rug in navy can bring out the natural beauty in your hardwood and tile floor in your kitchen area, but they also can mesh well with other patterns and colors.
Bohemian rugs: Boho rugs with bright colors and soft luxurious textures bring that artist’s look to your room effortlessly. Evoke inspiration with color and design without appearing eclectic or overwhelming your space with color and no purpose.
Rugs like this Aztec Fiesta Area Rug in orange are so soft that you can even use them as alternative seating for a party, an art collective, or tea time with friends. Don’t be afraid to put it in unconventional places like in front of the bathroom sink or the kitchen hutch.
Colorful Rugs: A Spectrum of Options
The rainbow of colors available comes in a wide variety of brightness, vibrancy, shades, and tones. If you prefer a high-energy rug or want to decorate your room in a surprising way, vivid colors like tomato red, mustard yellow, electric blue, or lime green can give your space the pizzazz you are looking for.
However, for rooms that might need a calmer atmosphere, like a bedroom or a bathroom, multi-color area rugs that come in more pastel colors like soft baby pink and sky blue might work better. Gentle contrasts between colors like olive green and light grey can help make a room bright without bringing a surplus of energy to the space.
Two or three colors that complement each other or provide a little contrast can make a room colorful without making it feel busy or overwhelming. This effect is important in rooms where you need to focus, calm down, or rest. Rugs like this Bohemian Diamond Trellis Shag Area Rug in pink fit well in a space that needs a gentle form of variety.
