A rustic area rug is the best way to start bringing the lodge style into your living room.
Imagine…the smell of pine trees, the chill in the air, you walk inside your cabin and see a living room of rich earth tones with southwest accents. A leather lounge chair with a southwestern throw, a beautiful wood coffee table, and a rustic area rug pulling it all together.
What an inviting room!
How would like to be able to incorporate some rustic accents, like an area rug into your living room to give that lodge feeling?

Even within this category, the styles are quite diverse. Here are some examples.
This Kathy Ireland rug on the left uses earth tones and a leaf pattern to convey a more traditional rustic style. Laid over a light colored hardwood floor and paired with darker furniture, this rug is a great way to unite your living room decor.
On the right is another great style of rustic area rug, with a definite southwestern feel. Some consider the southwest style of decor part of the rustic family. Lighter colored furniture and Native American accents work well with this rug. You can work this type of rug into your casual decor, as well.
