Red and Green should never be seen, unless it’s in a traditional rug

The combination of red and green is one which makes you think of Christmas – so it’s not the best combination for other times of year. Except that is, when it comes to stylish traditional rugs for your home! Traditional rugs add a certain cosy appeal, especially when it’s in the year’s most festive shades – whoever said that red and green should never be seen should definitely think again!

Lord of the Manor

If you’re looking to channel a little upper-class style into your Victorian semi, why not opt for an English Manor rug. These classically styled rugs are available in a variety of sizes to suit even the most palatial drawing room, and will add an air of sophistication to your home. Muted shades of brick red and olive green give a subtle no to your favourite time of year whilst keeping things understated.

Rock the Kasbah

Spice things up with a Persian runner or traditional Kazak rug – these beauties add an air of exotic mystery to any home, and are hand knotted. The vibrant colours in these rugs are thanks to the vegetable dyes used by Iranian rug makers – when left to dry in the sun the colours fade slightly, leaving you with the deep, rich tones you see today. Vibrant red and earthy green are popular shades which remain bright even after drying, adding a pop of colour to a neutral room and bringing a hint of the world of spice markets, snake charmers and belly dancers into your living space.

Pride of Place for economy rugs and runners

If you are feeling that your home is beginning to look a bit tired and gloomy, don’t go to the expense of a complete makeover or – even more expensive – move. Just take a slow walk around and see if in fact it is just a few places that need a little bit of a smarten up. We bet it will be your hall, landing and possibly the living room.

Were we right? Thought so – and we can help you with the solution. All you need to make these slightly tatty areas bright and breezy again is a new rug or hall runner. And you don’t have to worry about the cost either because at we have loads of economy rugs and runners that will look just great in your home.

Taking the hall first, it is an area that often gets overlooked when it comes to decor which is a bit of a shame because it is the bit that everyone sees first. In fact, if you take into account the number of people you open the door to who never get beyond the front step, the hall is seen by far more people than any other part of the house. Many halls these days have laminate flooring of some description and although this makes it easy to clean up this kind of surface can look a little dull and unwelcoming. An economy runner, carefully chosen to pick up a colour from the walls, curtains or furniture can be given pride of place and no one will know it didn’t cost very much money.
