Rx: Walking on Jewels--Overdyed Area Rugs in Ruby, Emerald, and Sapphire

If you're afraid of prints that are too bold , but still want intensity in a rug, go for a punch of color with a saturated jewel tone. 

Over dyed rugs look particularly good in strong reds, blues, and greens--which, in my mind, translates to rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, of course.
