Here I go again, trying to get you to take a walk on the wild side. Sorry, but I am simply not going to give up and let you off easy. Shade is fantastic for you. Pattern is fantastic for you. Mixing things up is good for you.
Thus, for the sake of your health and the health of your house, I entreat you to think about those bold little numbers. A splash of colour or pattern onto the floor might be just what your room needs.
Adding bold strokes into your residence is kind of like drinking wheatgrass juice difficult to swallow at first, but completely addictive.

This magenta attractiveness gives this room its oomph. And it works perfectly well with its otherwise conventional roommates.

A simple, light-filled room with lots of cherry wood and the purple rug, shining like a stone.
This whole setup is a little “what happens in Vegas …” But the bright orange rug gives it a contemporary, lively twist and prevents it from being tacky.
A blown-up purple and white layout from The Rug Company adds much-needed colour and focus to this neutral room.
A orange floral rug beneath Chinese orange seats sets the dining area apart from the remaining open floor plan, and it is just plain fun. The Kaley Sculpted rug is no longer accessible from Pottery Barn, but it sometimes shows up on eBay.

Blue polka dots within an otherwise neutral room. Yay.

How else are you going to bring together lavender walls, a bright pink mattress and a lime green vest? Having a brighter-than-bright floral rug from Missoni, needless to say.
Is there anything more classically beautiful than an Oriental rug on a shimmering wood floor? It adds instant elegance and climbs over trend.

An Oriental rug functions in any kitchen –from the sleekest modern number to the Dwarves’ cottage. It simply warms up a room famous for its flat, hard surfaces.

Green and orange are color-wheel buddies, and this rug has just the right quantity of colour and pattern with this simple, airy room.
This diverse contemporary living room with its hard-lined midcentury furniture makes all soft and cozy when you incorporate this patchwork rug.
I adore this nursery dedicated to world traveling. And the rug — which reminds me of a nomadic camel train — gives it richness and depth.
This lavish, tie-dyed-looking runner leaves this white hallway appear to be a gallery.

Dark and white stripes work nearly anywhere with almost any color combination. Trust me.

Orange and white stripes. Sure beats beige wall-to-wall.
As long as no exotic creature died for your flooring, animal prints are awesome; they are timeless at a Hemingway kind of fashion, but also a natural expansion of the taxidermy trend that hit it big roughly 2006.
Nicole Lanteri Design
Faux animal prints, for the PETA members among us. This soft grey zebra-stripe Safari rug from West Elm is a wonderful alternative if white and black looks too bold.
Kristen Rivoli Interior Design
The sheepskin that is omnipresent. I adore it thrown chairs, resting on beds and as a supersoft greeting for morning feet.

Rawhide is not just for cowboys anymore. A cowhide such as the Koldby from Ikea looks contemporary in a white room.

In addition to being bright and enjoyable along with providing endless opportunities for colour and pattern combinations, Flor carpet tiles are easily installed (badly, if I did it, anyone can), are relatively cheap and may be changed out should you slop your java on one.
Supon Phornirunlit / Naked Decor
This arbitrary grid pattern is contemporary, enjoyable and supercolorful without being overly wild. If you do not want to go for the whole space, then leave off a few rows to make an area rug.
