Guest Post from Design Shuffle…


Hello all! Susie here, with a guest post front Design Shuffle, a social networking site for interior designers, architects and everyone who has a passion for interior design. I'm excited to be here at lemonDrop dreams (love that name!) writing about colorful carpets and decorating ideas inspired by them. Colorful carpets add so much to a room. They can create a focal point for a seating area, dress up a bedroom and add color to rooms like the kitchen, bath or laundry room. Whether you choose wall to wall carpets, area rugs, runners or carpet tiles, think about choosing a carpet with color to add life to a room.

Colorful Carpets

Wall to wall carpet looks so chic in a navy and white geometric print. Navy is a great neutral color for a bedroom. Accent with yellow, orange or green for a colorful room.

Colorful Carpets Color dramatically changes the look of the same pattern on these area rugs. Crisp white looks great with each of these fall inspired colors. Colorful Carpets Pale blue and white make for a Scandinavian influenced rug in this stylish bedroom design. Coordinating the rug color with the wall and textile colors creates a monochrome look. Colorful Carpets A colorful carpet in the kitchen adds comfort under foot and all that color can hide stains. A runner in front of the sink or stove is a smart idea. Colorful Carpets Colorful carpets in the entry hall create a cheerful greeting for family and guests. Mix colorful carpets with bold wallpapers for big design impact. Colorful Carpets If colorful carpet can cheer up even the most utilitarian of rooms, the laundry room, imagine what it can do for other rooms in your home. Solid or patterned, colorful carpets add life to a room. Colorful Carpets Colorful carpet is perfect for the nursery. Carpet tiles are a great interior design idea for baby's first room as they can easily be switched out if one gets stained. Colorful Carpets If you have a neutral colored carpet and wish you had a colorful carpet, you are only a can of paint away from your wish. Using a stencil will give the painted carpet a stylish pattern.
