Make your living room bloom with a green rug

Green is a fantastic colour for any home, but especially in your living room. A little pop of a vibrant green brings a fresh, spring look to your space without needed to change all of your furniture. We suggest you add one elementary piece - a contemporary green rug.  

The easiest way to achieve a vibrant look is to add a luxury green rug. One of my favourite things about a rug is that it will enhance the colours of other furniture pieces. For example, if you have a brown or pale red sofa, the green underneath will really make those colours pop with minimal effort. Something like our Louis De Poortere Fading World Rug in Bubble Green is a great option. With a faded, neutral pattern, the rug will add a subtle yet sophisticated style to your living room whilst still adding some interest with a touch of vibrancy.

A large contemporary rug will show off the scale of your living room and create a focal point of both your furniture and interior styling. In the centre of your living room, make sure to give it some space to shine, rather than covering it in furniture.

Try and think about how you can arrange your room so that you don't feel the need to have a coffee table across the rug. However, you could always find a super slim or glass coffee table which will still allow your rug to be the star of the show. If you are looking to make a statement, I love the Louis De Poortere Spring Leaves Rug. With its blend classic and contemporary rug motifs, it has an architecturally striking effect which will really accentuate wooden flooring and other colours in your room. 

You can also think about placing your green rug into an unusual position, perhaps by twisting it on an angle . Even if you are very organised when it comes to decorating, you might find that this position will open new ideas for decorating, and give you a chance to mix up different styles. The Louis De Poortere Mad Men Greenback Rug is a wonderful style for this as the ultra-contemporary, geometric design allows you to be a little more playful when it comes to styling. 

Once you have found the perfect rug for your space, you may wish to think about how you can tie it into the rest of your room to create a sleek, co-ordinated look.

Accessories are the easiest and most affordable way of doing this. A scattering of green cushions across your sofa or even a green throw is always a great option for adding both colour and style. But coloured glass is also a huge trend which looks fantastic - some simple white flowers in a green coloured vase will look wonderful, and paired with the green of a rug will bring a fresh, botanical look to your living room.
