One design idea for using a floral-patterned carpet is to allow the pattern in the carpet to set the tone for the rest of the room. Another is to connect the floral pattern with a certain style of furniture.
One bedroom carpet with a pattern of silver flowers on white echoes those colors in the silver upholstered bench at the foot of a bed that is decorated in white and silver linens. The color scheme is also found in the draperies, the lamps and the walls. Two upholstered armchairs in a sitting area near the windows are more light gray-green than the rest of the decor, but the stripes on their throw pillows match the silver of the flowers in the carpet. The dark wood of the bed frame and the curtain rods keep the room from being too floaty.
A living room allows the floral pattern of the carpet to inspire the draperies and the upholstery of one of the armchairs.This room is very colorful, with the green upholstery of the love seats, the olive green fireplace surround and the different colors of the wood of the chair frames and tables.
Another bedroom has a carpet with a pattern that recalls Tudor roses, and the half-tester bed is appropriately massive, with rich carving. The bedclothes reflect the gold in the carpet.
