Small scale patterns can come into their own in simple, minimal rooms that make use of repeating color accents. A Losanges rug by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, part of Nani Marquina’s 2011 collection, anchors the master bedroom in an Ibiza vacation home. Photo by Albert Font.

As we know from the Big Lebowski, a good rug can really tie a room together. And while solid color or neutral rugs are always a safe answer in decorating your home, there is just something about bold patterns that can take any room to the next level. Powerful geometric and organic patterns can easily become the focal point of any space, which often makes it a challenge to incorporate them in a way that doesn't overpower everything else. When used to their best advantage patterned rugs can have a harmonious effect, complementing other elements, rather than just drawing attention to themselves. We take a look at some Dwell homes that found the perfect balance in mixing colors, shapes and textures with their patterned rugs.
