Whether you’re truly Irish or not, let’s face it, on March 17th, everyone is a little Irish. The exuberant carnival atmosphere, the patriotic green flags, and the awesome music and performers, what’s not to love?
Although the day is only a public holiday in the Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Labrador, Montserrat and Newfoundland, the occasion is proudly celebrated all across the globe.
Celebrations take form in all shapes and sizes - From pub-crawling with friends wearing green head to toe, to throwing a St. Patrick’s themed party at home tucking into some delicious traditional Irish food, this special day can be celebrated by people of all ages. (Traditional Irish foods include: bangers and mash, colcannon, bacon and cabbage, stew, Shepherd's Pie, potato bread and black pudding).
If you want to get in the St. Patricks day spirit, but don’t want to make a bit of a fool of yourself parading down the streets rocking that never-to-be-worn-again (or maybe till next year) green tutu/leggings, then maybe investing in a green rug may be a more sensible idea. To get us in the festive spirit, we have put together just of our favourites that are sure to compliment your décor.
How to style green in your home
Incorporating green into your décor is such a great way of brining the outdoors in. The colour green is often associated with nature. It symbolises growth, eternal life, freshness and health. Taking that in mind, it is safe to say that adding a green rug to your room will entice positive emotions and add a relaxing feel to it. There is something for everyone in our selection of green rugs; ranging from modern to more traditional/oriental designs.
Green home décor doesn’t have to stop at just wall colour, furniture or bedding. Why not decide to green up your interior design naturally - by naturally we mean incorporating houseplants.
You may choose to have them all one colour, different shades of the same colour, contrasting hues, grouped or simply scattered around your home… the possibilities are endless. Just have some fun with it, be unique, and let your own sense of style shine through.
Don’t be afraid to get creative and add an interesting and bold patterned rug to your décor – this will make a great focal point in your space. After all, every interior lover wants their guests to think ‘WOW’ when they walk in their home, and our ‘Kashba Jewels Leaf’ modern rug by Brink and Campman is sure to do just that. This gorgeous flat-weave has been hand loomed from 100% wool by expert rug makers in India. The design is available in 2 standard sizes.
However, if you’re keen to stay away from a bold pattern and are seeking a more neutral green tone, why not go for our new ‘Khayma Fairfield Leaf’ rug by Belgian designer Louis De Poortere. Louis De Poortere is the most recent designer to have been welcomed to our already extensive collection of designers, and his rugs are truly beautiful.

Why not entice your imagination with Entice Leaf’s exciting abstract design? This particular design by Nourison reminds us of an enchanted forest - the foreground is filled with a scattering of blossoms that drift dreamily across the magical landscape.
If you’re looking to take a more subtle approach when incorporating a green rug into your space, Charles Leaf’s softer tones will still adding some colours whilst not being too overbearing. This timeless modern rug will provide perfect backdrop for other elements and accessories in the room to pop.
