Let's take a look at the trending colors and styles that are emerging in braided rugs and indoor/outdoor area rugs this year.
To begin, the top trend is vintage styling and Capel is right on target for this style.
Our designs and colors are timeless and exhibit craftivism and old wisdom. Handmade and artisan appearances are also very evident in vintage style. Reconnecting to the past and seeking the feeling of nostalgia seems to be what everyone is hoping for, so it is high on our list as we are creating new colors and combinations. Mixes of ancient reds, powdery pastels, and rich jewel tones that we have researched within the paint and color forecasting industries to keep ahead and current with the vintage trend.
Our design team's passion is creating new palettes and color combinations that are current, and on point with interior paint trends that will elevate your interiors.
The next trend to note is layering! As an interior designer, and now product designer with Capel rugs, this is actually my favorite current design trend! Layering rugs with different patterns and textures is a great way to bring added depth and interest into a room. Most often, I start with a base layer that is neutral with some texture and add a rug over it that has a very distinct pattern, heavier texture, or contrasting colors, immediately creating appeal within the space. Braided rugs can be the base or the top layer, just depending on the look you are trying to achieve. A common base layer that is trending now as well, are rugs constructed with all-natural materials. These are a perfect selection for a base with incredible texture, and neutral color options.
There are no set rules for layering however, I would suggest that the larger base rug be placed in line with your furnishings. The top layer can be any slightly smaller shape or size and placed in the same direction as the base or slightly angled. Again, we are thrilled that layering is trending, give it a try!
