help with foyer rug or rugs and door color
So yesterday it was time to clear out all the winter rugs and crap from the foyer and get it back to order although the rug situation was never right since I moved in here last summer and got set up.
Not sure if I need one or two or matching or complementary or what? The width is a tough size. I like generously sized right in front of the door for dogs and people. I prefer to fill the long part too, but maybe I shouldn't. There is no size that one rug can do it all even if they made such a size.
Here's the foyer sans rug:
Here's a rug I already had that has interesting color and pattern but it looks a little lost:
Here's one of my winter rugs from another area. cheap looking, brown and boring but much better size (3x5):
Here's a black or near-black patterned runner from another area filling the bowling alley. It seems narrow. I had it here in the winter with a solid black waterhog type rug down by the door that was the same size as the brown one. The combo was okay (except for the waterhog winter style).
Here's a combo of the too small one and the brown ugly one just to show it filling the space.
Despite the red orchid accent, there is nothing red about the area. Here's a long shot to the room it opens up to (some of you may remember this shot from another thread about the green wall):
Oh, and I had an epiphany yesterday that I should paint the door. I am thinking black. Other ideas?
The wall color is not my favorite (BM Manchester Tan), but the foyer is 2-story and the color is all over the place so it's staying for now. Door color and rugs should help me not notice the wall color so much.
