As summer ends and the feeling of fall creeps into the air, many people seek to create a cozy and inviting space for themselves. Bright and colorful hues are replaced with cozy autumn colors that mimic the falling leaves outside while plush textures help you to create a space that warms you. Get your home ready for the new season with a solid design foundation and some new rugs for fall. Don’t know where to start? We compiled a list of six of our favorite fall rugs to inspire you in creating your ideal indoor haven.
1. Sink your feet into something plush with a shag rug
Shag is a fan favorite for all seasons, but fall is an especially great time to unroll a shag rug! Coming home after a long day and letting your feet sink into a shag rug is the perfect way to wind down and get comfortable. With over a dozen colors and sizes to choose from, there are no limits to how you can incorporate a solid shag rug into your décor. Colors like terracotta, sandy brown, and taupe are all great choices if you really want to lean into the hues of the season.
2. Try something moodier with a Monte Carlo rug
Summer encourages bright and airy décor, but fall is a great time to explore deeper and richer tones. When looking for fall rugs, try going darker. While some may consider a black rug to be a bit daring, we think it’s bold! The pattern on this stunning Monte Carlo rug adds a moody touch without being too dark or overwhelming. Pairing a dark rug with lighter décor adds a wonderful contrast and allows you to experiment with different accent colors. But if dark isn’t your thing, don’t worry! There are tons of colors to choose from.
3. Get a lived-in look
The cool weather in autumn really encourages you to get cozy. It’s the perfect time of year to curl up on the couch with all your cherished things like that comfy vintage sweater and your favorite mug filled with cider. Create those same comfortable nostalgic feelings this fall with a vintage style or distressed rug. The Kennedy Collection uses bold colors and distressed patterns to create a lived-in and well-loved look in any room.
4. Make a statement with an intricately patterned Santiago rug
Transition into fall by rolling out your newest statement piece. Our Santiago collection comes in a wide array of patterns and colors that make it easy to find the perfect rug for your space. These colorful and intricate rugs are great because they pick up the color of any décor you pair them with! Not only are these rugs stylish; they are easy to clean and stain resistant too. That makes them perfect for high-traffic areas during fall gatherings!
5. Branch out with a hand-knotted rug
Hand-knotted rugs are great for the fall. With their rich colors and unique textures, these one-of-a-kind rugs make a dramatic statement. Persian rugs are among the most popular and are mainly known for their bold and intricate patterns. While they are most commonly red rugs, keep an eye out for other unique color options to pair with your fall décor. Kilim rugs are also great for fall. These flatweave rugs are great for high-traffic areas because of their durability. They are also great transitional pieces that can fit into all types of seasonal décor. Lastly, Moroccan rugs are a great choice to explore as well! Soft and heavily textured, Moroccan rugs really warm the room. With tons of unique colors and patterns, there are unlimited ways to incorporate a Moroccan into your home.
6. Don’t feel confined by walls, try an outdoor rug!
Cozy fall décor doesn’t have to be limited to indoor style. Expand your autumn interior to the exterior of your home with an outdoor rug! Outdoor rugs come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors. There are plenty of options to explore when considering an outdoor rug. A runner outside your door will welcome visitors and set the mood before they even come inside. Meanwhile, round and rectangular rugs are great for outdoor dining and sitting areas. Our Sabrina Soto Outdoor collection is great for fall. Their pile is thicker than your standard outdoor rug which invites a bit of added warmth and comfort to your outdoor space. A good outdoor rug can extend the functionality of your outdoor spaces into the cooler months.
