Stay Trendy In 2015; Choose Oriental Rugs With Patterns & Vivid Colors
Just about all interior design in 2014 had a common thread: designers favored all-white, neutral, and subdued interiors. Just like politics, design has a tendency to experience dramatic shifts. While last year may have been about all-white, beige, gray, and soft colors, industry experts project that 2015 will be about bold, contrasting colors and asymmetry. Here are just a few ways to test the waters, starting with area rugs.
Pick Up An Art Deco Rug
So you bought an art deco rug. Fancy. If you’re not careful, it can be a bit too much (read: pretentious) as well. So what now? Professionals and everyday homeowners alike are pairing art deco area rugs with dramatic slate gray, charcoal gray, or even black walls. If you want to keep walls white, a mirror wall, a collection of artfully arranged small and large mirrors, complements art deco rugs, without distracting from them.
Revive A Timeless Classic: The Persian Rug
The Persian rug, oriental rugs, Persian oriental rugs — whatever you like to call them, they’re making a comeback, and just in time, too. Genuine oriental rugs are made out of silk or wool, and they add instant class to any space. (There are some knock-offs on the market as well, typically made out of imitation silks such as synthetic rayon or mercerized cotton.) What are the best uses of these elegant rugs? Strike the perfect balance between high art and country living by purchasing oriental rugs for sale for refined rustic homes. Oriental rug dealers are also more than happy to help decorating with oriental rugs; when browsing oriental rugs for sale, ask about oriental rug cleaning and decorating tips. No matter where you put it, for example, steer clear of direct sunlight and humid areas.
It’s a new year — and that means you have the perfect excuse to do a little redecorating around your home. Buy that Persian rug you always wanted; it will perfectly complement rustic, wooden features. For high drama, purchase art deco rugs and paint walls a dark shade.
