It wasn't until I came across a sleek, well proportioned version that my mind became open to the possibility that a green carpet, done right, can actually make a room feel brighter and add a natural type of beauty to a space.
In this example from the Swedish publication Hus & Hem ("House & Home" in English), a family added a green throw rug to an otherwise white room in their summer home to bring out the main source of decoration: plants and flowers.
Touches like this green carpet remind me that (almost) nothing is totally out of date. If done with a careful eye to style, nearly anything can look good in the right context, opening up a world of possibility.
