You've heard it here, a thousand times, a rug can be the focal point of your decor.
You've fallen in love with a rug. It is the perfect statement of your style. Now, to make it the focal point of your decor. Whether a family heirloom or a beauty discovered on a whim, the rug speaks to you and you want it to be your room's focal point. Here's some tips for making that possible.
1. Be an Artist - Even though it's great to have a plan, decorating your home definitely relies on your artistic abilities. Don't worry so much about rules, go with what you know and what you love. Break a few rules for the sake of your art.
2. Be Bold - If the colors in your rug are bold, that could be quite enough to make it the focal point of your room. Use a neutral palette for the remaining decor so that the boldness of the rug shines through. Try incorporating the boldness of the rug into other parts of your decor, such as pillows, fabrics, art and other accessories. Don't overpower the rug, but pull the colors from the rug to emphasize the rug as the true focal point.

5. Be Unique - Diverse textures and non-traditional rug shapes draw attention, particularly when the uniqueness of the rug does not have an equal in the room. Try venturing from your typical decor style or color to make a clear statement. Trying a more eclectic style in contemporary decor, for example, will create an interest in the eclectic piece, as it will stand out from the other decor styles. Mixing modern with traditional, would have the same effect.
