Chevron is trendy now, but it is still always a classic.
If you have a more eccentric decorating style, you can get away with having fun with your rugs. I think this rug is really cool because it reminds me of the pixels I push around all day as a web designer, but don't know if I could live with it long term. Luckily, you can find some seriously interesting rugs and runners to fit whatever your style.
If you are going for a neutral or monotone palette, you have to add a variety of textures. These stunning rugs might now have bold colors, but the bold texture will add richness to the room.
And of course there is always the size and legs on/legs off debate when it comes to rugs. I tend not to follow a lot of decorating rules, because I don't really know all of the decorating rules, but the important thing is to consider the feel that you'd like the room to have.
A smaller rug, where all the legs of the furniture are off of the rug, is going to create a cozier, more intimate feel.
