Styling Your Shag Rug

Add a few orange accessories like throw pillows, picture frames, or art pieces to tie the room together. Ahh...you can almost taste the citrus.
Imagine red rocks. If you love rustic southwestern style, a burnt orange shag rug in a wooly texture gives the space an earthy feel that transports you to the old west. Southwestern style takes its cues from nature; the focus is on organic, raw textures and materials. Try a tribal or Moroccan style shag rug in warm orange hues, paired with leather furniture and raw wood accents to create a cozy southwestern aesthetic.
If you're going for a contemporary or more modern look, an orange shag rug in an abstract pattern adds some heat to an otherwise static space. Ignite your room with a shag rug that has a pattern that mimics fire to give an energetic and vibrant feel while maintaining the clean look of the space..
Kids love shag rugs. Their soft and squishy texture is perfect for playing, reading, or snuggling. Orange is a unisex color so it looks great in a boy's or girl's room. In a boy's room, pair with navy blue and gray for the perfect mix of bold and calm. In a girl's room, orange makes for a great accent color when combined with pinks and whites. An orange shag area rug next to the bed, in front of the dresser or simply centered in the room gives a room a vibrant energy that kids love!
Caring For Your Orange Shag Rug
Keep your shag rug in great shape by properly caring for it. Shag rugs should be vacuumed frequently but only with suction. The beater brush should be turned off as it can damage the fibers. Since the fibers on shag rugs are long, dirt and debris can get caught. Remove dirt and debris by taking your rug outside and giving it a good shake.
