On a primitive level, green means safety and survival coming from the fertility of the green earth, invoking a feeling of relaxation. If you want your home to have a calm atmosphere, green is a great color to choose when decorating. You don’t even have to use green in large areas such as the walls or carpet. A few touches of green can be just right for some rooms. Using green rugs is a great way to add the color to a room without it taking over the whole decorating scheme.
When decorating with rugs you can really go one of two ways. You can either choose your green rug to go with your decor or decorate to go with your rug. If you have no intentions of decorating soon, then you need to let your current room decor dictate the colors in any rug you choose. If you have a free hand with the color scheme, you can have more fun choosing your rug and then matching up other purchases to go with it. In any case, you need to make sure that you can create a coherent color scheme with your new rug, and that it does not lie on the floor looking like it does not belong to the room. The other thing you must take care with is the size of the rug, because it will not enhance your decor if it either swamps the room or looks tiny against the scale of it.
To find the color you have set your heart on whether that is an olive green rug or an avocado or lime green one, may be quite a challenge especially if you restrict your shopping to your local area. To have the most choice it is better to shop on the Internet where you will find every color under the sun and a whole range of patterns and designs in every shape and size with a little bit of searching around.
The only disadvantage of shopping online is that you cannot touch and feel the rug before you buy it so make sure that the returns policy of the website where you buy allows you to return your rug for a full refund should you need to send it back.
