Congratulations on your remodel! When it comes to a rug choice, it is always a matter of personal preference. You want something that ties in with the look and feel of the room while also conveying a sense of personal style. I think a geometric, colorful rug would be a perfect addition, and tying the rug colors to pillows around the space integrates the piece into the room even more. Happy Decorating!
