Blue Shag Rug – Choosing a paint color to go with blue carpet is a matter of personal taste, but there are techniques to narrow your options. The particular tone or shades of blue on your carpet can help determine the color you choose for your walls and moldings. The small color cards of the paint shop known as paint samples or peels will help you determine the best color to use for your own situation. Be sure to look at the various options under different lighting conditions so you have a better idea of how your new color scheme will look throughout the day.
Determine the tone or mood you want the site to have from the blue shag rug. For a vibrant look, such as in a living room, choose colors that contrast with blues like gold or peach shades. For a more classy look, such as in a home office or in the master bedroom, go for neutral grays, creamy whites or tans with slight nuances of orange, especially with darker blue carpets. For a beach feel, choose a lighter blue color to poke the blue carpet, then a mid-tone blue or blue-green for adjustment. For a dramatic look, contrast burgundy walls with dark blue rim and blue shag rug, or create a Victorian atmosphere with lavender and mauve walls or pink trim.
