Modern floral rug designs are a great way of bringing the outdoors in without the hassle. These rugs bring a vibrant nature-feel to the room they’re in. You’ll most commonly find these rugs in living rooms, dens, and basements. The leaves may be wide or slender depending on the pattern.

For a simple look, try a modern floral design with only a few leaves on it. This will leave room for open space in the pattern. For a more complex look, try a rug with small leaves and dark colors. Sometimes the leaves will swirl and connect with each other.

Be careful when choosing a color scheme and theme for the room. If the rug is too dark it will have a huge impact on the room. If the background of the rug is dark, look for a rug with light colored leaves. If the background of the rug is light, you may want a rug with dark colored leaves to even everything out.

Some consumers like to use seasonal rugs. Leaf rugs with orange, brown and dark green are great for the fall and winter. Light, simple designs will look best in the spring or summer.
