Gorgeous greens are easy to find – possibly the main problem is choosing which one. Green is one of those colours which you can buy off the peg without taking swatches and colour pots with you to the shops, because you won’t get a clash. All you need to do is decide whereabouts your rug is going to go, the size, shape and pile and then just wallow in all the options. Sea-greens are really good at cooling a room down but for a real accent in a neutral room you can’t beat a bright apple or teal.
For a child’s room you can get their imaginations going with a green rug. It can be a farm, a football pitch or anything they can think of. Green is a good colour for a child’s room anyway because it will grow with the child and will bring a touch of colour to a neutral room if you are decorating for a baby and have chosen not to find out its sex; pale greens can easily match in with blue or pink afterwards and can still be doing a great job in brightening up the room years later.
A green rug is a natural choice for a bathroom and looks wonderful against gleaming white walls and bath. As the only colour in the room it looks clean and yet quite sumptuous and of course goes with any number of bath products, which seem to be in shades of green more often than not. To really complete the picture, apple and leaf smells are often used in bath foams and soaps, so your senses will be together in imagining a fresh spring meadow whatever the time of year.
