There are so many ways to celebrate the holiday season at home, through dressing up your mantel, trimming your tree, decking out your porch, and sprucing up any other areas that feel worthy of holiday cheer! One of our favorite ways to take these spaces to the next level is to add—you guessed it!—a festive rug underfoot. And while we love a dedicated red and green Christmas rug, sometimes you want to create a look that’s a little more sophisticated—and one that can stay out beyond the holiday season. Below, discover how to up the festive cheer in your home with holiday rugs!
Try holiday rugs in classic patterns.
Gingham, plaid, stripes, and other timeless patterns pair perfectly with the classic warmth of the holiday season. Try rolling one out on your porch, as seen with our Regency Stripes Indoor/Outdoor rug in the photo above, or in the entry, as seen with our Flatwoven Buffalo Plaid rug above, to welcome guests in with a sense of festive tradition. We also love the idea of layering a stripe or plaid style on top of an existing rug in the living room to liven up your Christmas tree scene!
Roll out creamy, soft rugs that mimic snow.
Bring the joy and wonder of a snow day indoors with creamy whites and sumptuous textures. We’re all about layering rugs, so try laying down a cream-colored rug, such as our Diamond Textured Trellis Tassel rug or a faux sheepskin style, on top of your current rug to create the illusion of a blanket of freshly fallen snow. We especially love the look of a faux sheepskin rug at the base of a Christmas tree. A white Christmas, indeed!
Styles to try: Luna Washable Shag rug, Super Soft Luxury Shag with Carved Trellis rug, Wool Shag rug (this one has sequins!), Solid Shag with Tassels rug, Shag Pelt rug, and Natural Double Pelt Sheepskin rug.
Add festive texture with shags.
Your winter wardrobe is full of chunky knits and soft textures, so why not bring that sense of coziness to your floors? Shags and rugs with tufts of statement texture are the perfect picks for cold weather and the holiday season, warming up your space and making toes (or playtime on the rug!) extra cozy and comfy. Try one of these styles out in the living room, bedroom, and other areas where you’ll be hanging out and relaxing!
Choose holiday rugs in red or green.
While they may prominently feature the colors of the season, these chic styles are not your average holiday rugs! To bring in that festive feel without being too on the nose, consider rolling out a rug that features red or green hues. These styles will complement your decor perfectly and add a dose of sophistication without veering cheesy or over the top. Plus! They’ll still feel right at home once all the holiday decorations come down. Call it a holiday miracle!
