Why choose one when you can have them all. Make a space go dull to fresh or make a mundane activity a little more exciting with different colors. What else? The kids will love it and you can experiment as much as you want. Also, a single color will not be dominant on your mood and emotions. But trust me, you want to keep them light. Warm colors will bring the energy, but as we are discussing summer rugs you might want to keep rugs calm in summer.
