Will a cowhide rug work in my room?

We’re spending more time than ever in our homes. Thus, it’s more imperative than ever for those spaces to be pleasing to our eyes. Few things can dramatically freshen up an interior than a cowhide rug. While their versatility can’t be overstated, their popularity throughout eras is due to just one thing: they are gorgeous. 

No matter what your current motif is, you can incorporate a cowhide in a way that transforms the space in a striking way. Or if you’ve grown tired of the current aesthetic and want to shoot for something completely different, there are few better starting points than a new rug.

Here are a couple of ideas for how to work a cowhide into your living spaces: 

Make light work in more than one way: If you have a space with a lot of lighter neutrals or a whitewashed scheme, there is no better way to have a stark contrast than with a cowhide rug. The more bold the pattern and the deeper the tone of the cowhide, the better.

It will not only immediately draw the eye but make the space feel more grand and luxurious, as well. If you don’t have any spaces that fit this description, be not forlorn. The next suggestion might be more your style.

Treat your hardwood like you should: One of the reasons hardwood floors are so popular is because they’re an illuminating backdrop for everything that goes on them. That applies to cowhides as much as it does everything else. This is where rugs that have less common colorways - like a lighter brown and more of an eggshell than a true white - can really shine.
