How to Get a Modern Look with Traditional Rugs

Living Rm to foyer
Light, bright and simple is the motto when staging your house to sell. With the popularity of natural grass rugs and neutral palettes. how do you neutralize your house with existing traditional rugs?

Pictured here is the living room of my wonderful clients who prepared their home beautifully for the market. Light but warm colors were used on the walls. Keeping accessories to a minimum, and furnishings neutral, they were able to achieve an updated look with their traditional rug to ground the space.

Other ideas for traditional rugs are:

White walls pair with a traditional rug to give a modern look

Warm up a cool space such as a predominantly white kitchen or bathroom

Pair a traditional rug with a brick wall to get a “loft” look
