Inspiration Monday: Working with Oriental Rugs

Let's talk oriental rugs, shall we? I used to think they were used mostly in stodgy traditional decorating, but lately I've seen them mixed with other styles to create a new, fresh look. Check it out.
There are so many patterns and color combinations you're surely able to find something to work in almost any space. 

Brick reds.

Paired with animal print!

Coral and navy. A favorite combo of mine.

The yellows are stunning.


My all time favorite are the more muted, vintage styles.

It's all about balance, as you can see. Even the most traditional of foundational pieces can be mixed and matched for a fresh look. There's no denying that a true Oriental rug can be an investment, but you can still find deals online and at auction…so get out there and find yourself one. You can thank me later.

until next time,
