Do you have an outdated cream-colored carpet at home that keeps bugging you? Revive it and make it work for you by following these easy styling tips:
Determine your carpet’s undertone
Beige comes in more than one color. As a catchall name for colors that could be tan, cream, buff or more, examine the underlying hints in the beige to find colors that match well with it. Put a white piece of paper in a sunlight area next to the wall covered with beige. Compare and examine the undertones to figure out if they would work better with a warm or cool palette. Warm beige works well with warm or cool color schemes, depending on the underlying color. For example, a warm beige with hints of red is offset by rusty reds, earthy browns and touches of black, while certain blues complete a yellow beige. You can also pair a cool beige with pastels that include lavender, pale silver and muted gray-blues for a soothing effect. Source: Hunker
Add drama with colorful décor
Use the pop of color in accent pieces such as pillows, lamp bases and art. Imagine an outfit with khaki pants and a purple shirt, which is quite striking and even elegant, and translate that feeling to the room. In a room with vibrant tones, accents in white can lighten things up, and black accents are dramatic. Source: HomeGuides.SFGate
Place an area rug
Allow beige to fade away by using it as a canvas for fun, colorful, or beautiful rugs. Select different size rugs to achieve different effects on your decor:
- Toss down smallthrow rugs, on either side of a bed, for example, to break up the beige and add color and function.
- Delineate a conversation area using a medium-size rug.
- Pull the eye to the center of a space with the use of a larger area rug. This solution causes beige carpet to disappear into the background. Source: BHG
