Green is the ‘in’ color: These popular area rugs make a bold statement

Green is one of the biggest colors of 2021. From jade and emerald to hunter and seafoam, there are so many rich shades that bring tranquility and calm while still making quite the statement. Finding a green area rug is the perfect way to add this color to a bedroom, living room, kitchen, or bedroom without having to commit to paint or furniture. Whether you opt for a pattern or go all-in on solid green, here are four area rugs that we think make the biggest splash of color and design.

Where can I find a vintage green area rug?

We love Revival Rugs because the shopping experience is super easy. You can search by color, size, and style, and their selection is second to none. We are in love with this Baudilia 6×9 area rug for these reasons:

  • The vintage look works perfectly in a farmhouse or bohemian-inspired room.
  • The natural inconsistencies give it a ton of character.
  • The seafoam-and-teal color would look gorgeous in a study or bedroom.
  • There’s free shipping and hassle-free returns.

Can pattern work in a green rug?

Absolutely! We love this geometric print from Dash and Albert (found at Perigold) because it seamlessly combines two of our favorites — hunter green and cream — in one rug. Here are a few other reasons:

  • Geometric prints are super on trend and will be well into the future.
  • Its jute/poly/cotton blend is easy to clean.
  • It’s reversible and comes in seven size options.
  • It’s handmade and wears well.

Where can I find a unique statement rug?

Look no further than Grandin Road if you want a jade green rug that will turn heads. The vibrant colors in this Viera area rug are done in abrash, a technique that gives slight, variable changes in color that occur when different dyes are used. The results are nothing short of spectacular. We also love it for these reasons:

  • It’s 100% polyester so it’s super easy to clean.
  • 1/5-inch pile makes it comfortable enough on its own but it can also be layered.
  • It comes in five sizes to fit your room size.

What options exist for an outdoor green rug?

There are a lot of indoor/outdoor rugs that have gorgeous green tones but our favorite is from Ballard Design. Their Seacrest rug is the perfect shade of hunter green, and the stripes will give your outdoor patio some character. Here are a few other reasons we love it:

  • It comes in five sizes.
  • The warm, rustic look is perfect for a vintage or farmhouse feel.
  • It’s easy to clean.
  • It’s stain- and fade-resistant.

All of these options would work great if you want to introduce green into your color palette. Green adds a tranquil and inviting mood to any space, and it’s also a seriously on-trend color right now. All of these rugs provide the color and character deserving of an area rug, especially one that’s being used to make a statement. These rugs vary in price depending on the size, so do your homework before deciding on one that works within your redecorating budget. As always, before you clean any rug, make sure to read the manufacturer’s directions so you don’t accidentally damage or fade the rug.

Decking your halls doesn’t have to mean damaging your walls

Sometimes, decking the halls comes with a caveat for many homeowners: hanging garland with screws and nails may damage your walls. And while stick-on hooks, putty, or wall tape are a go-to for many, these adhesives just don’t hold up heavy decorations for the entire winter season. So, today, we’re sharing a fantastic solution to hanging your Christmas garland this season from TikTok, which will protect your home while still allowing you to decorate as you like.

What a hardwood contractor says your wood flooring says about you
According to a hardwood contractor, the species, stain, and cut of your wood floors can say a lot about you

The home is a canvas for your personality, and your interiors should reflect your personal aesthetics. A professional hardwood contractor on TikTok, @lumberjackwoodsupply, says your wood flooring may reveal more about you than you might have thought. Here is what the species, color, and style of your wood flooring say about you (though, of course, some of these are a bit tongue-in-cheek).
What your wood flooring species says about you
If you have lighter, slim, natural pine floors, this TikToker says you likely fall into one of two categories. “You definitely have an appreciation for old things,” says @lumberjackwoodsupply. Alternatively, “you most likely own an old house that had these floors underneath.”
Walnut flooring
Walnut flooring is classy, elegant, and often sold at a steeper price. The hardwood contractor says homeowners with walnut flooring “have taste.”
Red oak
“There’s a good chance you didn’t choose to install this. It was just already in your house,” says this TikToker. But if you did choose to install red oak flooring, “you are either on a budget or you like to go against the status quo.”
Brazilian Cherry
“You probably live in an upscale but slightly outdated suburban home,” says the hardwood contractor. “There’s a good chance you hate the red.”
If you favor the sleek light wood tones of maple flooring to curate an airy and uplifting aesthetic, “You either live on the beach, or you want to look like you live on the beach,” says this TikToker.
Hickory flooring is well-known for its boldness. It’s a unique wood with a quirky grain and various hues. If you have hickory flooring, “you like unique things,” says the hardwood contractor. “You want to be different.”
