Although decorating trends change from year to year, there are certain features and accessories that continually remain a decorative and functional part of every decor. Rugs are an example of a decorative accessory that is typically included in every decor. They add the perfect amount of softness to a modern decor, smoothness to a contemporary decor, coziness to a cottage or country decor and are the ideal finishing touch in a rustic room design. The 2016 decorating trends open up numerous opportunities for incorporating cowhide rugs in your updated decor.
Sometimes, you’ll see decorative elements shown in upcoming trends that you think are attractive, but not conducive to your budget or lifestyle. A large part of the appeal of cowhide rugs is their durability. Another great feature is that they are hypo-allergenic. You can include these rugs in a family room where kids lounge on the rug to watch TV. It’s even okay if the family dog joins them. All it takes it a damp cloth to wipe clean a cowhide rug. Cowhide rugs can fulfill your request for a rug that is beautiful, practical, versatile and affordable.
Lighter colored wood flooring is one of the 2016 flooring trends. Hickory, ash and walnut are popular choices for 2016 flooring material. Gray floors are expected to impact interior decors. Reclaimed wood floors will be a prominent feature in casual, eclectic, contemporary and rustic decors. Wider planks are an emerging feature in 2016 flooring trends. All of these new flooring trends provide the perfect background for the color scheme and pattern of cowhide rugs.
Dramatic wall colors and upholstery colors are a major part of 2016 design trends. Black or dark navy walls are being used to dramatically impact a room. Dark colored walls also provide support for the trending pearlized finishes and shimmering decorative details that will be included in the decor. You can further enhance the dramatic effect of a dark wall by hanging a gorgeous cowhide rug on it. A zebra print cowhide rug would add drama and intrigue to an exotic decor.
Textures are a key element in 2016 designs. You can place a cowhide rug across a chair that is upholstered in a deep, rich color to create an attractive, textured decor feature in the room. Cowhide rugs can be placed across a bed to provide an additional layer of texture in a bedroom. You can showcase your cowhide rug best by choosing a dark, solid color comforter as the background for the rug.
Shiny details are another feature of 2016 design trends. Gold is expected to appear in accessories and furniture detailing. It will be in keeping with the trend to introduce mixed metals into your decor. You can unify these elements of design by placing them on or near a complementary cowhide rug.
