Just look at how these two colors complement each other and would definitely create a sprightly ambiance. So, why bother choosing between these two if you can literally just pick these two?

Just like in the photo, you can either have a yellow carpet ora epink curtain or vice versa. If you don’t want to change the color of your floor, you can opt to hav a rug. Have you noticed how the shades of each color vary? The color of the curtain is a darker shade of yellow while the floor’s color is a lighter shade of pink.

If you want to try this tip, make sure to make your floor homochromatic. A colored carpet, sometimes, doesn’t need a rug. You can add a rug only if its color is analogous to your floor. You carpet should be in harmony with your rug or else it will look like a room that was splashed with different kinds of colors.

If you will choose a rug for your room, it should be as pleasant as its visuals. How? If you will take your sit in that area, you’ll still feel comfortable as you were on the couch. If you will going to walk on it, it should not irritate your underfoot.
