A blue rug can bring the perfect balance of color and calm to a room. Whether you choose a navy blue area rug, a royal blue rug, or something in between, the right rug can make a room feel whole, almost like finally finding the missing piece of a 1,000-piece puzzle. Without it, however, décor can often seem lacking, ordinary, and rooms can even feel cold. With such an easy, versatile addition to bring your home design to the next level, why not invest in a beautiful area rug that unites the room? Simply adding a new rug, whether you choose to renovate or refresh the space, can truly elevate the overall mood.
The 2020 Pantone color of the year, Classic Blue, is just one demonstration of how trendy blue has become. This year’s top color trend shows no signs of slowing, with tons of blue area rug styles available on the market today. From deep, dark blues, to light blue hues mixed into a range of rug colors and styles like contemporary, traditional, and abstract, it seems there’s a blue area rug for any design.
To give you some blue area rug inspiration for your home design, we’ve put together a few of our favorite blue area rugs in a variety of styles, and gave options on how to best pair them with a variety of designs.
Rug by Momeni; Collection: Esme; Style ESM-04 Blue
This boho-meets-modern rug features blue accents with textured fibers that highlight the natural beauty of the rug. Its hand-woven fibers made from cotton, wool, and jute, make this a unique rug that stands out from other options. Not only will this contemporary blue rug bring warmth to your space, but it will also add texture, and a natural element to any home design.
Combine this rug with other blue décor elements like a blue couch, blue patterned curtains, or blue accent chair for a beautiful combination of blues. Or, instead, make it the touch of blue that your design so desires, by pairing it with other natural accents in the room like wooden art pieces, tables, and distressed candlesticks.
Rug by Kaleen; Collection: Hoka; Style: HKA06-35 Aspen
Taking things in a different direction, this simple blue area rug will suit nearly any eclectic, contemporary, or Scandinavian style home design. The deep blue in the rug brings warmth and comfort to the space, as well as a moodiness that can only be achieved by its dark color. Lightly colored lines create triangular shapes that feel geometric but aren't overly modern with their imperfect and flawed shape.
We love this rug because of its beautiful simplicity and ability to play off of other design pieces to create a truly unique design. A leather couch or a deep green indoor plant are both ideal décor options when considering this rug, but so are wooden tables, floral art, and other natural neutrals.
Rug by Kaleen; Collection: Kendo; Style: KDO01-77 Silver
A traditional rug pattern steals the show with this beautifully elegant blue and silver area rug. Capturing all the detail and beauty of a traditional rug with its floral pattern, center medallion, and simple color palette, this rug is a design piece that won’t be forgotten. Adding to its already classic beauty is the distressed finish that aids in pairing both old and new décor together in one space. Also, because of its timeless blue color, this rug will highlight a variety of color schemes and styles.
One of our favorite things about traditional blue rug designs is that they can be used in nearly every space, new or old. Colonial homes, farmhouses, and even new-build homes with old-time flair can benefit from a rug with incredible detail. This blue rug is also perfect for accommodating designs that have a combination of styles, like traditional, eclectic, boho, and modern farmhouse!
Rug by Kaleen; Collection: Ofelia; Style: OFE02-17 Blue
Inspired by architecture, this blue area rug has no shortage of elegance with its shades of navy and one-of-a-kind design. The triple medallion in the center and double border makes this rug feel sophisticated, while the detail and color add a touch of warmth. Featuring 100% blended wool in a hand-tufted design, there’s no doubt that this rug will bring comfort to any space.
Because this rug is elegant and sophisticated, it flows well with traditional and transitional designs in a range of colors and styles. A large living room with an ornate mirror or a dining room with a classic cherry hutch are just two examples of where this clean, crisp area rug will achieve the perfect design style.
What’s unique about the color blue is how easily it can take on your design scheme. Do you want to make your room feel like an upscale palace, but also like a lived-in space? There are plenty of shades that can accomplish this, like navy, sapphire, or a gray-blue. Looking for the perfect edgy piece? There’s an abstract area rug on the market that suits your needs. Also, blue is an excellent choice when used in conjunction with other bright colors to enliven a space. No matter your goals, there’s an area rug that will add the balance and harmony that every home desperately needs.
