Might I suggest neither? I fear that throwing in another artsy element will take away from the painting and overall feel, making everything disjointed.

Your painting is so lovely and artistic I would suggest getting a single color rug using a color from your painting (do I see dark blue?) in order to pull everything together.

I wouldn’t be matching the rug to the painting. Normally I would pick the area rug first then pick colors out of that for the walls, drapes etc. The art does niot have to match anything.

As you already have the drapes and wall color, I would do something with the green and gray in it:

This may be too much green for the room. I will look for a rug with gray and green.

You don’t have any pattern in the room so a pattern in the rug would help tie your colors together,

@claireos: Yeah I just depends on what you want to enhance. Again I really like the art piece and feel that it should stand out in your room, but that is my opinion.

Although the previous poster is right “the art does niot have to match anything” the rule of thumb is to have a main focus in a room. When you start throwing in too many elements you start to feel cluttered and disjointed. The key is to bring everything together with cohesion.

Either way you can always return it if you don’t like it. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want the art to be the focus, I would keep the rug soft and neutral.  A splash of dark color on the floor , by the sheer size and weight of the rug, would draw the eye away from the art.

I think I agree with a more neutral color for the rug.  And if you have the money, you can always change the curtains, too, if that makes it any easier for you to pick a rug color you like.

But I’m really just commenting to say your kitteh is so precious.  Baww!

What size and shape do you think you want? It should be large enough so that when you pull out the chairs, they are still completely ON the area rug. How much room do you have?

Rugs on top of rugs will ‘walk’ and bunch up if you don’t use a special pad under them and on top of the existing carpet. Even with the weight of the furniture, it can be really annoying, and sometimes the edges will curl…trip factor. I had my DR like that for years and finally got rid of the area rug until I had hardwoods installed.

Are you wanting something just for some color in there?
