Help NtB Choose a New Home Office Rug!

I’m writing this in my new home office – okay, home office nook – which is an awesome thing to be able to put down even if the doors aren’t painted and my art is currently learning up against the wall on the floor. At least everything else is painted, and my furniture is all in. Only thing missing? A rug for under my feet since it gets awfully chilly in this house in the wintertime. Right now, it’s a toss up between this:

Gray on gray with gray plus giant flowers

And this:

Possibly in orange, possibly in green

Both from West Elm, and both on sale for cheap when compared to some of the usual West Elm prices. Why am I telling you all this? Now I need your assistance, of course. Help me decide on an office rug: Which do YOU like better?

    Gray all the way! It’s a calmer pattern to my eyes, which would make my working life much easier.

    I vote for gray as well. Happy, yet work-inspiring.

    GREY! – accentuates the chair, lamp etc.

    I love the gray, very serene.

    First one. Definitely the first one. Because then if you want to paint later, it won’t clash with ANYTHING. Yaay rugs!!!

    I like the orange or green rug better, though clearly I am in the minority. Winters are so gray anyway; why not orange to warm th winter blues?
