Cowhide rugs and a few ways of using them in your interior décor
Cowhides are elegant and stylish accent pieces and they often contribute to a more inviting and casual atmosphere without compromising on elegance. A beautiful cowhide rug can be a very beautiful focal point in a living room and also a very chic detail for the décor. Let’s take a look at a few interiors that feature such accents.
This is a lovely living room with an overall very light and bright interior. The black and white cowhide rug placed underneath the coffee table is the only piece that creates such a strong contrast of colors. Its texture also contrasts with the wooden floor and furniture but it integrates beautifully into the whole décor.
Here the décor is similar but the cowhide has become a second focal point. The colorful wallpaper representing a scene from nature adds depth and color to the room and the rug contrasts with that area with its simplicity and monochromatic theme. Its texture is perfect for this space and it makes the atmosphere feel even cozier.
Even though the black and white combination is a classical, it’s not the only existing one. Sometimes a black and white accent piece would be too strong for a certain décor. In this case, for example, the cowhide features white and brown accents which match with the beautiful wooden floors and thus the visual impact is less striking.
In the bedroom, a cowhide accent piece would integrate perfectly. The room is naturally inviting and cozy so it would only add more warmth and comfort to the décor. In this example the rug matches the pillow and the colors chosen match the overall color palette in the room.
A cowhide rug placed in front of the fireplace look very familiar. It’s because the image seems perfect. It’s both rustic and modern and if you also have a comfy armchair to sit on and admire the flames then the atmosphere becomes simply amazing.
Even though, most often, the cowhide accent pieces are seen as focal point that need to be inserted in minimalist and even monochromatic décor, they can also look beautiful in a more colorful area. Here, for example, we have a beautiful, eclectic bedroom that features a color palette that ranges from peach to pink, red and brown. The combination is beautiful and the rug adds style and texture to the room.
This is a Hollywood residence and it features several strong accent pieces, one of which is a cowhide rug. When combined with that zebra chair and the multitude of textures, patterns and details from the furniture and walls, it becomes less striking and a more gentle impact. It integrates nicely into the whole eclectic mix.
A cowhide rug doesn’t necessarily have to be defined by its strong contrast of colors. It can also be less striking, almost monochromatic. You can find one with a color that matches your interior décor and you can place it in your living room underneath the coffee table. A small or transparent coffee table would allow it to stand out more.
A cowhide rug would also be perfect for a reading nook. All you need is a small bookcase, a comfortable chair and a cowhide rug to put underneath or in front of it. The result would be a very cozy and inviting space and a warm and pleasant atmosphere, perfect for reading and relaxation.
The nursery would also be a great place for a cowhide or sheepskin rug. They are soft and friendly to your baby’s skin once he/starts crawling. If you want to maintain a serene and calm atmosphere and a simple décor, maybe you can find an all-white rug and a matching pouf or one to throw on the chair.
