One of the best ways to make your home feel more comfy and cosy is with a few extra touches, be that chintzy ornaments, wall art or a couple of scented candles. Don't neglect your floors though — there's nothing sadder than bare hardwood floors or the plain old carpet that was there when you moved in. Thankfully, this is an easy problem to address, with some soft and colourful rugs! Red is a classic warm colour, so consider a rug in this hue to add a subtle glow to any room.
Let's start with the living room. A plain red rug pairs brilliantly with a black leather sofa to add a depth and richness to your decor without losing the minimalist theme. Alternatively, if your room is more busy and you want to keep it that way, why not opt for a red rose design rug? It'll look great with some classic flocked wallpaper.
If you've got an entryway or hall of any kind, a rug is a nice way to greet guests to your home. A traditional tapestry style rug will add an instant homely touch, to help your guests relax.
Where you can have a bit of fun is the bedroom. Express your wild side with a kooky red zebra print rug; match it with a white bedspread for maximum effect. Alternatively, experiment with the trend for clashing colours and try a modern art-style colour block red rug with a pink, orange or coral bedspread.
You can even liven up a plain white bathroom with a a simple red rug. Choose a machine washable brand to keep it squeaky clean and just pop it in with your coloured wash once a week.
