trying to avoid a skunk butt rug

My definitely-too-small, cheap living room rug from IKEA has seen better days. I've been wanting to replace it for months now but can't decide what to go with. The room is pretty neutral in color, with some blue accents (patterns on pillows) and kind of ugly red/gold cushions on our dining chairs. So, I'm debating sticking with something neutral, trying something that has both reds and blues, or just running with blue. I have my books organized by color (very rainbow-y!), and I kind of like the idea of playing that up (hence option 4).

Tell me which one you like! (or if you happen to have seen a great rug out there, leave me a link)

2 and 4 are pretty cool -- I'll say one thing about #5, I have a similar style rug and I LOVE it except... it can't really be washed, which means it looks a little shaggy and ratty after a while. It's not terrible but I wish it looked more "groomed" if that makes sense. Vacuuming helps a lot, but every time I vacuum it I tear out so many fibers, I feel like someday there won't be anything left! Just a note -- probably not what you want to hear ha. But I figured it might be helpful in deciding. I don't know if I'd do anything differently though, we really love it and it's soooo soft!

@kylie definitely checking that out like NOW.

@lydia good to know, that's definitely helpful! I do love how soft and cozy it looks but...ratty is why I want to get rid of the current rug, so maybe I'll reconsider that option...
