So you want to make your space feel more cozy? We’ve got you covered! One of the easiest ways to add softness and personality to your home is by investing in a warm-colored rug that makes your room feel complete — and represents your unique aesthetic.
Wondering what “warm” means, exactly? The term refers to any decor containing shades of red, orange, and yellow — or neutrals like brown or jute. Unlike cool tones, which evoke a soothing aesthetic, warm tone rugs help make a space feel more welcoming and comfortable.
We’ve rounded up nine beautifully styled spaces featuring warm-colored rugs that’ll have you embracing this cozy color palette, ASAP. Check them out, below.
1. Boho Paradise: Farah Autumn Rug
Everything about this bedroom evokes cozy autumn vibes, from the rich shades of the diamond-patterned warm area rug down to the rattan decor. We love how the shapes seen in the rug design mimic the molding on the room’s statement wall. To up the cozy factor, don’t forget the linens, and lots of them, layered on the bed in various shades of neutrals.
2. Modern Farmhouse: Zareen Scarlet Red Rug
This living room would look just as stunning with a neutral rug, but note how this warm-colored area rug adds an air of sophistication. The elegant hues of ruby red, blood orange, beige, and brown are a compelling contrast to the space’s light furnishings.
3. Vintage Meets DIY : Daisy Bordered Tangerine Rug
From the oh-so-Instagrammable book wall to the chunky crochet blanket, this creatively designed living room makes us want to come and stay awhile. Check out how the subtle pops of orange in this warm vintage-inspired area rug add a charmingly antiqued touch.
4. Scandi Chic: Kamran Hazel Rug
Consider this the perfect example of how an area rug can breathe so much personality and comfort into a space. Without the Persian-style area rug, featuring pops of warm hues, the Scandi dining table and chairs would need a little extra something to round it out.
5. Sunroom Goals: Burlap Solid Sand Re-Jute Rug
It doesn’t get much more relaxing than this airy, plant-filled sunroom. It’s clear that this designer carefully curated the room so that it feels like a destination. The earthy Re-Jute rug is simple, yet it warms up the patterned tile and helps to highlight all of the boho furnishings.
6. Lavishly Luxe: Mandalore Scarlet Red Rug
You know your home doubles as a tranquil escape from reality when it resembles a sumptuous spa. This living room is yet another great example of how a warm area rug with scarlet red and burnt orange shades can elevate your space to the max. Side note: How epic is it that this rug is Star Wars-inspired? Did you notice?
7. Eclectic Elegance: Cambria Ruby Rug
Eclectic artistry and boho vibes meet mid-century furniture in this visually compelling, uniquely styled living room. There’s no doubt the warm tone red Persian rug lays the foundation for this room. We love how its subtle pops of blue beautifully complement the navy velvet chairs.
8. Chic and Simple: Kamran Coral Rug
No kitchen is complete without a runner that adds character and this lovely space is no exception. Without this coral-toned warm rug, the white kitchen would look boring and cold. The distressed Persian design adds a laid-back vibe to the space and plays well with the rustic flooring.
9. On-Theme Entryway: Hudson Stripe Rust Orange Rug
The entryway is the first thing visitors see when they enter your home, making it a place worth upping the cozy factor. As seen here, this space in particular exudes comfy-cozy fall vibes thanks to the orange striped warm rug, pumpkins, and candles — proving that there are very simple choices you can make that are on-theme and fun.
