We love decorating with bold red and fiery orange rugs. These colors give you a punch of energy and you will want to use them in rooms where there is a lot activity. Every home is unique. The lighting, the design style, the type of furnishings and accents all impact how a home responds to the use of color. Red and orange rugs work so well in homes with a lot of natural light. Combine these colors with its complementary color on the color wheel. Blue is the complementary color to orange and makes a vibrant, energetic space.
