Adding colour to your home with a Moroccan rug

Nouvelle Nomad Vintage Moroccan Boujad Rug

Adding colour to your home is as easy as a gorgeous bold, artistic and textural vintage Moroccan rug.

The beautiful balance between old and new. Contemporary style and classic design. Trends versus timeless. Go maximalist or minimalist - it's up to you.

Just don't be scared to add a splash of colour to brighten up your world.

The practical benefits of adding rugs and textiles to your space is that they're of course transportable. Take them with you to your next rental property, or move them into the next room as your tastes, the season or your mood changes. You wont be stuck with a colour decision for years to come like you are with painting a wall.

If you're not sure where to start with finding the right piece for your home, here's a few examples of where our treasures have landed that show finding a rug that adds colour and suits your own personal style may be easier than you think.

TAKE YOUR QUES FROM YOUR FAVOURITE ART

Centering an art piece in a room can provide the right direction for choosing the perfect shade of rug. Go tonal by choosing a piece that pairs to the colours in your artwork, picking up on the subtle details.

Or pick out highlight colours to match to that can lift the eye from the rug to the wall.

Considering that vintage rugs are artworks in themselves, you may even decide to hang yours on your wall. The smaller Azilal pieces are great for this as they're generally lighter in weight with their finely spun wool, rather than the larger and thicker wool styles.

CLASH OF THE COLOURS

If you're a pro at playing with colour and print, clashing patterns and designs may be the way to go for you.

Pair fresh bedding and textiles from your favourite homewares brand with your vintage pieces to create an eclectic and maximalist look. No crazy pairing is out of bounds.

Light weight cotton Boucherouite (Moroccan rag rugs, made from hand-knotting upcycled strips of bright cottons and yarns) are a great solution for kids rooms and colourful family living spaces. As a more affordable option that allows you to change up your style or colour preferences as often as you like.

SET THE MOOD WITH COLOUR IN THE BEDROOM

Whether you're going for light bright and airy with soft linens and natural timber, or moody and romantic with rich dark tones. Choosing a colourful rug for the bedroom is the finishing touch that creates a luxurious space you'll love.

Vintage Boujad rugs with their natural plant dyes in rich purples, plums and natural reds, and their recognisable large central lozenge shape designs add soft tonal colour and easy on the eye design work that won't take over a space. Their thick wooly weave beautiful to feel under your feet as you wake up in the morning.

Adding a thick and wooly Beni MGuild style rug with their typical linear design work can soften a space without adding too much pattern and colour. A great option for larger spaces and those who like more subtle colour.
