Home inspiration: Pink and red rugs

How pretty are these pink and rugs? They're a great way to brighten up a room. I would never have thought of putting a pink rug in a dining room, but they look so pretty (and not too girly). Thoughts? Three more below...
P.S. The pink rugs in our bedroom.

Honestly, I can't speak for pink and red rugs as a generalization, but every one of the ones you posted would be welcome in my home!!! :)

Heba Lateef said...

i think they look pretty, although am not a fan of pink

KelseyB said...

I love them all! We were just talking about getting a new rug for our nook area in the kitchen and I wanted to do red, this post just confirmed it :)

chris said...

I adore the dining chairs in the third photo, any idea where they're from?

Grace Beekman said...

Love all the different prints! I say go for it! :)

megan said...

I love them!!!

Michelle Panting said...

I think they're great! I don't find them girly at all with all the other colours and pattern to balance it out.

thefty said...

I have a big, plain red rug in my living room and I love it. It makes the room look so happy!

Rachel B.C. said...

I have been looking for the perfect rug for the past several weeks! Rugs are so crucial for tying a space together. Do you have any recommendations for where to buy a great rug?

Jill Sarah said...

I've lived in my apartment for 5 years and still haven't found the right rugs! I bought a few cheap and neutral ones which were supposed to be temporary. Rugs seem to be even harder than bedding to choose!

Chen Green said...

Those are Eames Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Armchair (DAW).

Laura D said...

I don't think I would have thought of this, but I love the pictures you posted! The rug really brightens up the first room.

Ellen said...

Love it! A little bit of pink keeps them from looking too formal.

Emmy M. said...

They're all beautiful. I have been on the lookout for a vibrant Kilim rug for ages!

Aja Lake [the gold hat.] said...

They look beautiful (although, my home is far too neutral for one)! Have you tried soft pink light bulbs? They lend the perfect glow to a room (and they're not super bright, which I love). They're the only ones I'll use! x

Lizzie Polish said...

My parents have a beautiful pink and blue rug in their living room that they bought in Morocco. It really warms up the room. It wouldn't work very well in my house though.

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

I LOVE all of these rugs but trying to convince my husband of them is another matter. That bedroom rug is to die for awesome. Maybe in my next life I can have pink? LOL

chris said...

Thank you!

amb said...

Love, love, love!

Jana Miller @ 333 Days of Hand Lettering said...

Cute rugs! I'm a big fan of pink :)

Gabriella said...

My parents' house is filled with reddish/pinkish oriental rugs. They make the space so warm and bright, and set off the cooler tones in the room in a really nice way.

Tina / said...

You clearly picked the best of the batch! If done well pink and red rugs can look great. It's best if they are just rugs though, and not wall to wall carpeting.

jm said...

These rugs look great in these houses - so cheerful, yet tasteful!

Ouh la copieuse said...

Très joli!

Emily L. Eibel said...

Yess! I am a huge tomboy- but I love a rug with some bright pink in it! Maybe because most rugs with pink are usually awesome kilims...

Lindsay Truax said...

I love the pink rugs! What a cute idea?!?!?!?!

Anne Campbell said...

Love the rugs-I have several tribal and similar rugs in several rooms. In the first picture in the bedroom- what color is the wall paint ?

badgalchic1 said...

I absolutely love pink and red!!! It's such a CHIC combination!!

raychelnyc said...

I've been looking for a rug for my new apartment downtown... I'm inspired! I just may go pink!

xx Raychel

Nicole Michelle Centers said...

I think ink and red carpets are so bohemian chic- I just LOVE them!


Samantha Scarlett Phoenix said...

Those are nice and inspiring. I always think about entirely designing and decorating my house in the future. It's funny because whenever I go to a mall, I always look for Home Decor. I don't know. I can't explain it. I just love housewares, etc. Anyway, pink and red are nice. But for me, I like brighter colors.. I know some people prefer reserved ones, and cool tones. But for me, I love colors that will really pop, but I'll do that with my curtains or chairs, not entirely. I'll make sure it's balanced.. and for my room, it would be more neutral to help me sleep better at night, and makes everything so peaceful. I don't know.. I think having some bright colors in the living room area and kitchen just makes you feel more at home and energetic. I think that is important.

Love the pink rugs! I would have never thought about it either. They're not girly at all!

Oh.. my...
The photos are so captivating! I always fall for the Oriental style in decorating. Amazing and inspiring selection!

Leah said...

I love how these rugs bring life to the room! said...

I watch Joss & Main sales for rugs. They get great stuff.

Dishes, Runways and Briefcases said...

love love love this!!!! I would never have thought of such a bright rug in the dining room but this just works. Now if I could only sneak this into our house...

Ailish said...

I especially love the rug and the colour combinations in the first picture, so lovely and cheerful!

New Mom and the City said...

Love decorating with pinks and reds. Our oriental rug is pretty neutral, but I convinced my husband that pink and orange silk curtains would look great in the living room... and they really do. Not as feminine as you would imagine! They add so much richness and brightness to our space.

Susan said...

Maybe it's my computer, but other than the rug under the bamboo-looking chair, these don't seem all that pink to me. I think the pictures are lovely even though I'm not a fan of the Indian inspired look for my home. On a positive note, they probably don't show dirt easily. A big plus in my book!

Kate Queen Bee said...

Love the decoration!! lovely!

Anna said...

My favorite is the top photo - I wish there were more info about where to get that rug!

Emma said...

Ooh I love them! My parents had a pink perisan rug in our dining room for as long as I can remember. I'm not even sure I registered it as anything but a neutral (until I really thought about it). Thanks for the inspiration!

Audrea Rachelle said...

Ok, THANK YOU! I have always loved pink with red - for some reason it's not so popular? People seem to have a bunch of "rules" about fashion (their fashion sucks, actually...) - like no brown with black. WHAT? Ever heard of leopard? ha

Unknown said...

I like the layering of the two striped rugs, especially with the stripes running in different directions. Never would have thought of that.

Mat said...

HI, Yeah rugs are beautiful correct but rather then rugs i'm impressed with the dog siting next to the door in kitchen , the photo looks amazing :) and the lamp made with pieces of paper! WOW How original the lamp is :) I'm looking for something original too for my bathroom . Want to keep it so white and only bathroom sink will be in color like this one here: Gold Sink I love it :) However in Europe there is no such a firm as Kraus so need to import it from US... anyway. A great blog , very creative. Keep the good work and share with us more ;) Cheers


Hello Joanna! This is my first visit in your blog and I really love it. I also like the pink rugs that you display in this post. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

Cameron Robertson said...

Wow, they actually do not look too feminine (or girly as you mentioned) at all. Before I scroll down to all the pictures that you have shared, I have already pictured the rugs to be too bright and unsuitable for most parts of the house. However, after looking at them, I think they will work just fine like any other coloured rugs and are indeed universal colours. I bet they will look great and complement all the storage cabinets, sofas and other furniture pieces as well when placed underneath them. They add life into the rooms and make the rooms prettier.

Sandra Chali said...

When I married my husband I was already pregnant and so I didn't have a job. He had a really good job though so I was able to stay home and take care of our son when it was born. When we had our second child we moved to a bigger house, but then strange things started to happen. Things would fly off the walls and doors would slam at night. Our oldest son talked about seeing figures and hearing voices. We consulted a medium and they said the house was haunted. After living there about a year more with only minor occurrences we moved out. That was when the bad luck started to happen. Everything started to fail, with my husband's job, our money and our luck in general. I went back to the same medium and they told me that a spirit had followed me and placed a curse upon me for disturbing it and not being respectful in the previous house. He tried to remove it but was unable. The misfortune kept going on and getting more severe as I tried to search out someone to break the curse. But when I found Dr.Azonto spell he finally did it. Things started turning around almost immediately after he cast the spell and have been great from there! This was really a miracle for us, thank you . spell from the bottom of my heart!

I'll have to show this to my daughter, we're redecorating her room and these are her favorite colors too. I never would have thought to use area rugs as a main focal point like this, but I really like the idea! Thanks for the inspiration.

Well, these photos are telling everything about the beauty at your home. These are amazingly beautiful and looking lovely. Your home’s overall appearance is great and eye catching. The way of decorating the home chosen by you is really very good. Using wooden handicrafts items is also a very much popular and elegant way of decorating your home. Using wooden crafted items at home avail a great looking home and workplace in the same manner as the posted photos. I loved the way you brought perfection in your home, but adding crafted object can availed added benefits.

I have been dreaming about these rugs! Any idea where I can find a look-a-like at a reasonable price? Thank you for sharing these beautiful interiors!

Mariya John said...

I like all the carpets, all seems pretty good and also your home furnishing ideas are stunning.

Ann Shirley said...

I love every single one of these rugs! You have quite a nice selection of photographs here. I used to think that a red or pink rug would only be suitable for a 12 year old girl's room, but after seeing the fifth picture you posted I really want to add one to my kitchen. I'm a really big fan of Modern Rugs. Do you think a modern style would be best for the kitchen? I think it would help to give off a more energized feeling and since my kids like to eat in the kitchen before school I thought that could come in handy.

Wow…. What a great looking place. It is very interesting. The overall decoration and color combination is great. I love decorating my place by applying several things there like this. Using handicrafts is one of my preferred ways for decoration. Recently I got some attractive handicrafts in Jaipur from, which allowed me to bring traditional appearance to my place. I suggest using these as well.
