Incorporating the color green into your home design may sound difficult in theory, but it isn’t — we swear. From muted shades like sage and mint to deeper tones like emerald and olive, there are so many different ways to incorporate this mood-boosting hue in your space.
Green rugs suit every decor style; it’s just about finding the right one to match your aesthetic. If you’re a big fan of relaxing neutrals, maybe consider a sage green rug. Or, if you love the midcentury modern vibe, perhaps an olive green design might be the perfect fit.
Ahead, check out nine ways to incorporate green rugs into your home, everywhere from the kitchen to your teeny-tiny hallway.
1. In the Living Room: Terali Ivy Green Rug
We love how this space evokes a feeling of tranquility, and we credit that to the green paneled walls and matching green area rug. Teamed with the cozy gray corner sectional and greenery, it’s undeniably the perfect place to unwind after a long day. And as far as design is concerned, we think it’s brilliant how this designer coordinated the color of the pillows to the rug’s trellis pattern.
2. In the Dining Room: Sarrah Sage Rug
Round rugs are perfect for spotlighting a section of your home, and they look especially chic teamed with a round table. Notice how it creates visual symmetry and draws your eye from the floor to the ceiling. The rustic and earthy vibes of the rug complement the relaxed aesthetic of the dining room table and chairs, while the splashes of dark green coordinate with the table’s centerpiece.
3. In the Kitchen: Jonathan Adler Venom Emerald Rug
Looking to make a statement? Feast your eyes on this quirky kitchen rich with color and personality. It’s evident that this designer is an art enthusiast, so it’s no major surprise they went with a design from the Jonathan Adler Collection. The best part about this space is that the green runner rug mirrors the emerald green color of their kitchen’s seating arrangement.
4. In the Bedroom: Hendesi Heriz Sage Rug
The green Persian rug is one of the standout elements of this Midcentury modern bedroom. Not only is the color extra-calming, making it perfect for a sleeping space, but it also ties together the other decor. See how the blanket and throw pillows oh-so-subtly match the rug’s subtle hints of taupe and dijon yellow? Genius!
5. In the Office: Absida Sage Rug
If you’re going to spend all day in your home office, you might as well take your time creating the perfect design. For inspiration, consider this crazy-cute setup that prioritizes decor, making it rich with personality. While the placement of the handwoven baskets and other details are artfully scattered, the mirrored arches in the green rug create a sense of balance and complement the other earthy hues.
6. In the Nursery: Sage Green Plush Rug
Now this is how you add color into an otherwise completely black and white space. Notice how this sage green area rug is a lot less jarring to the eye than a more saturated hue might be — and it adds a playful touch to the room. We appreciate how, besides the crib, just about every piece (including the rug) can be transitioned around the home.
7. In the Hallway: Domo Sage Rug
Here’s proof that your hallway has a ton of design potential. This homeowner opted for a bold, rainbow-inspired mural, which they paired with a Mid-century modern runner in soft hues of sage and cream. There’s no doubt that these statement elements make the hallway look so much bigger than it actually is. Plus the sage and cream details of the rug are a match to the walls surrounding the mural, and the abstract artwork.
8. In the Entryway: Cynthia Rowley Lamella Jade Rug
Minimal doesn’t have to mean boring, evidenced by this personality-packed entryway. The runner, (which stars overlapping sage green semicircles and teal grey dots) and the black and white pouf energize the space, while maintaining aesthetic.
9. Outdoors: Marina Stripe Sage Green Rug
Breathe life into your patio with a green outdoor rug, like the striped one seen here. Green has obvious ties to nature, and looks so good in spaces full of trees and plants. We love how bright this patio is thanks to its combination of natural wood and white tones. It’s lovely how the rug’s white background complements the cushions, and how the stripes add depth.
