Remember when you used to visit your grandmother or great aunt’s house back in the day? Older folks used to decorate their homes in similar style, utilizing quaint, cozy features like area rugs, throw blankets and other quintessential cottage décor. This season, beach house owners are embracing all things antique by bringing back a versatile home furnishing from yesteryear: the round coastal area rug.
Whether it’s a cool solid blue, neutral beige or some fun, tropical image or sea life, these quality woven pieces are a perfect addition to any space. Not to mention, they’re nothing like your grandma’s old, musty mess! Here are some ideas for decorating your various rooms with sensational spherical rugs by creative shore brands.
How can I decorate with a round nautical area rug?
Round rugs can be tricky to maneuver in a space that’s populated with predominantly square and rectangular furniture. Still, there are plenty of home décor and accessories that call for that smooth, circular look. If you have a small cocktail table on your back patio, eat-in kitchen or dining room, place a pretty round mermaid rug right underneath. Comprised of durable jute fiber and braided just like back in the day, this charming piece will go perfectly with any existing color scheme—ideally in the range of blues, greens, browns or yellows. Mermaids not your thing? You’ll also find round rugs featuring dolphins, welcome pineapples, starfish and more.
Are there any high quality round rugs I can use in my dining room?
If you’re searching for a large fixture that’ll last for many years as a permanent piece in your home, opt for a round natural jute area rug. With dimensions large enough to accommodate most large tables, this style mat is unique with its chunky weave, one-of-a-kind color variations and extreme resilience. This style of jumbo mat is also ideal for under a coastal coffee table, island armchair or other similar sitting spaces. You can even find slightly smaller versions featuring funky imagery. A round anchor rug with signal flags will go great in a little boy’s bedroom.
Are there any round rugs fit for the outdoors?
The best way to make your outdoor space more comfortable for guests is to bring traditionally indoor furnishings outside. This is also an opportunity to play with pops of color that may otherwise be too “loud” for a traditional beach house interior. A delightful round sunflower outdoor rug will do just the trick, bringing that unexpected brightness to warm up any back deck, patio or lawn space. Just imagine friends and family clinking their glasses around this gorgeous work of art! It’s so pretty, you’ll want to bring it back inside.
