Dark floors. I adore them… when done right!
A dark floor can bring so much style to a room, it’s incredible.
But sometimes a room can get too dark and dense, and a patchwork cowhide rug in light colors can bring so much texture and brightness.
Here are our favorite picks to brightening up any room with dark floors, which combine with basically any kind of decor and styles:

All these creamy, light beige and off-white tones add a lot of texture and bring lots of light to any room.

I love combining classic chevron or herringbone style floors with modern patterns.

Triangles are simple, geometric shapes with a fresh and modern look without looking too busy. And the hair that points in different directions adds so much texture and reflect the light in different ways for a super special finish.

Classic Stripes are always a total WIN! They give directionality and elongate any room. But they also look stylish, modern, yet classic.

Adding a leather area rug in plain colors but a busy pattern will always help staying between the same kind of style without getting too “crazy”. Our Moorish Star in creamy whites is a perfect example of that.

When all your walls are painted in a crisp white, a light beige rug will combine a lot better without competing with the walls.

A very important part of the magic a leather area rug has is that hair reflects and refracts light and the colors around it. So for a dark floor and a dark room, a bright and light area rug will even out all the tones in the room.
We love them! 🙂
