Just like Mandy Moore herself, the actress’s interior design style is a timeless mix of bohemian vintage and mid-century modern that feels fresh yet rooted in nostalgia. In Moore’s living room, she has a brown-and-white checkered area rug that’s made several Instagram appearances.

 It’s very on-trend, but the unconventional color scheme blends together the modern and vintage elements in Moore’s space and will continue to be stylish for years to come.

Black-and-white checkerboard is both a classic and also everywhere right now — rugs, pillows, mirrors, dishware, and more. What’s great about Moore’s checkered area rug is the fact that it has that trendy motif but is done in a warm brown-and-cream scheme that softens the bold print.

Urban Outfitters currently sells a similar area rug that comes in a variety of different colorways, including one called honey with similar brown tones.

There are a bunch to check out on Etsy too. This brown-and-white Berber rug from Etsy seller BerberStuffArtisanat comes in so many sizes starting at 20-inches by 40-inches and going all the way up to 11-feet by 13-feet.

If you love the checkerboard trend but feel it isn’t quite right for your neutral aesthetic, there are much more subtle ways to get in on the trend while also investing in a piece that you will keep for years to come.
