Loloi Rugs has prepared a fascinating guide for assisting anyone with purchasing a rug. The guide provides tips, tricks, advice and full color photos to help with the entire rug buying process. We especially appreciated the portion regarding mixing various design patterns, as this can be a tricky business. The following an excerpt from the 2013 Loloi buying guide.
How to Mix Like a Pro as presented by Loloi Rugs
Mixing multiple patterns in a room is entire possible and quite stylish when done correctly. Just consider these basics when mixing it up:
Color is Permanent
Pick a rug that stays within the room's existing color gamily (pastel colors with pastels, jewel tones with jewel tones, etc.) and the room's different patterns will appear in harmony rather than competing for the eye's attention.

Mixing Two Patterns
Make sure the rug's pattern and scale is distinctly different fromt he existing pattern in the room. For instance if the room's armchair is upholstered in an intricate floral design, select an over-scaled geometric rug design.

Mixing Three Patterns
In this case, the rug's motif should match one of the room's two existing patterns but in a different scale. As an example, an over scaled animal print rug would work with an intricate animal print pillow and plaid throw blanket.
