Gray Is Far From Ordinary Especially When Decorating With These Rugs

Hadley Court (@Hadley_Court) posted a great blog about using gray in your home and it inspired us to pull together a selection of gray area rugs suitable for any decor style. She says, “Grey is the new neutral that has taken the place of beige.”

Here are 10 rugs  (just a few of many available). Which one inspires you the most?

Court continues, “”Grey is the perfect playmate to pair with an array of colors; yellow, orange, green and brown to name a few….  Grey has grown in popularity because consumers crave grown-up hues that lend sophistication to a room”  This one is perfect for a mid-century decor scheme with all the “Mad Men” colors.

No matter what your style or color scheme a rug is a great way to ground it while also adding some panache. Hadley wisely reminds us that “The sublime color isn’t just for living rooms and bedrooms anymore, grey has shown a dramatic increase in popularity in the kitchen and bath.”

  1. Illusions Floral or Francesca Mist, I think. It would depend on the kind of furniture in the room and the color of the walls.
