Decorating With a Persian Rug

Whether you are inheriting a Persian rug or buying one on your own, decorating a room based on the colors and pattern of your carpet can be challenging. Decorating with a Persian rug can be tricky if your style isn’t traditional. Luckily, with today’s trends of neutral tones and simple designs can turn your rug into the focal point of any room in your home.

Modern-Classic Furniture

Modern-classic furniture tends to be made of plain material. Adding a pop of color with a Persian rug creates a focal point in the room. Placing the rug in the center of the room and surrounding it with neutral colors that compliment the rug’s colors can pull the whole room together. Modern-classic furniture with a Persian is a good balance of old and new. This look is great for any room in your home. Whether it’s a living room or bedroom, Persian rugs can create a statement!

Charcoal Greys

Because many Persian rugs include blues and reds, using darker greys for wall color or accents in a room can create a peaceful, cozy room. This idea can be perfect for a reading room, office, or bedroom where you want to feel relaxed. Incorporate a lot of grey and white so that the Persian rug becomes the center of attention. 

Wallpaper or Stencils

Creating a subtle and tonal space with wallpaper or stencils tends to go well with Persian patterns. Adding an accent wall that mimics the design of your Persian rug can pay tribute to the brilliant design. Adding too much of a pattern to the walls with having a Persian rug can make a room too busy. Pick and choose the best spots to have accent design.

Unique Furniture

Persian rugs are unique on their own. Adding unique furniture pieces to the mix can create a one-of-a-kind room in your home. Whether you have a second living room or a cozy den, a statement room of this sort is always a perfect option. Opt for a sofa that is out of the ordinary, but try to keep the color simple. If you don’t want to go too bold, start with a funky lamp or other decorative pieces that compliment your Persian rug.

Pinks and Oranges

If you are lucky enough to own a pink and orange Persian rug, there are so many ways to use it. Beige or even lighter orange or pink walls with make your space serene but bold at the same time. Choosing pinks and oranges for rooms is a little out of the ordinary. These colors and rug to match would be perfect for a bedroom or living room.
