At Capel, one of our favorite words is colorway. It means the scheme in which a design is available. It also lends to telling a story, evoking the way color creates mood in a room. It symbolizes a journey. Because it’s not just about picking out what color is best for a room — it’s about finding the right base to build your ideas around. It’s about exploring connections between colors with layers and arrangement, creating movement and warmth through transitions and complements and contrast. That’s why we’re so excited about the depth and range of colorways in the area rugs from our latest collections. We hope they’ll inspire bold color narratives in your next design plans.

Another thing we love about designing with area rugs is the ease and flexibility. Change the colors of a space with the seasons without ever worrying about taping or scraping or any of that. And it’s a great option for spaces like a dorm room or apartment that may not be feasible to repaint. Bring color into your own home in a luxurious and inviting way with one of the area rugs we’ve highlighted below, or take a look at our entire collection here.
