Inspired by the rich, exotic and whimsical colors of hard surfaces like granites, carpet has grown beyond the neutral zone. Color can be playful or sophisticated, and it's easy to live with if you have children, pets or want to entertain.
Interior designers agree that every home has a place for an area rug. Layering in home decor is as fashionable as layering clothing. Don't hesitate to add color and warmth by adding a rug to hardwood, ceramic or even carpeting.
