Color Punch Part Eight: Textiles Under Foot

For this round-up of color-punch textiles it is all about rugs.  Rugs are a great starting point for setting the tone of a room.  I tend to love rooms with neutral tone furnitures with lovely wood accents, leaving the bold and geometric colors to the textiles.  My current favorites are woven rugs featuring beautiful pinks and oranges. These colors add warmth and a focal point to a space and are a design classic.  Moroccan and Turkish rugs have long been my favorite woven rugs, and luckily they are more available in the States.  The 1970s vintage pink one featured is perfectly worn and would look beautiful in any room. A slightly muted and variation on a theme version can be found at urban outfitters.  And I couldn't resist the playful boobie rug from cold picnic. Who doesn't love a little humor in ones space?
