Even though it’s a new year, it seems like rugs from yesteryear are basically everywhere. From interior design magazines to Pinterest, I’m definitely noticing tribal patterns popping up in all kinds up places like the living room, bedroom, and even the dining room. I know that we had a moment earlier last year where it seemed like everywhere you looked you saw some kind of tribal, Aztec, or triangle patterned décor, plates, etc. Somehow, all the other tribal stuff seemed to phase out, yet tribal rugs seem to be here to stay.
This time around, tribal rugs seem to be complemented by white walls infused with pops of color. Gallery walls, throw pillows, and worldly décor create an interior that isn’t over the top, but brings some bohemian chicness to your space. Wood floors create a really nice backdrop against the burst of color and pattern that tribal rugs tend to provide.
I personally decided to add a blue and white tribal rug to my large kitchen space, which I’m super in love with. The best part about these woven, flat rugs is that they can be washed in the washing machine to keep it looking fresh and colorful at all times. Trust me, my kitchen gets a ton of foot traffic and every time I wash it I feel like I fall in love with that rug all over again.
It’s really hard for me to be a minimalist, so I’m pretty sure that white walls wouldn’t be my thing but I can appreciate how dramatic interiors can appear by editing color and pattern on the walls, drawing your eyes towards the floor to that gorgeous tribal rug to focus on. Sometimes a little bit goes a long way and these rugs are definitely a prime example of one of those times!
Have you ever owned a tribal rug in your home? Let me know where you had it and what colors the pattern was!
