Take a traditional rug or motif and change it up. On-trend colors, exaggerated or all-over patterns, liberal use of different materials, all-over designs, with or without borders. Popular colors or patterns give these rugs an updated, fresh look. Maybe a traditional motif is exaggerated in scale or a pattern is contained without a border. Subtle changes in design or color can really change the vibe of the rug and the room you place it in.
