Instant Style: Fresh + Persian Rugs


I adore the vintage patina, intricate designs and rich colors of persian rugs! But using them in a space can be a bit tricky - they pack a whole lot of pattern and can easily make a space look busy, old fashioned or just dark and heavy. The key is to contrast them with loads of white and dark neutrals. Balancing them with a few mod pieces also helps keep the look eclectic and fresh as opposed to cluttered. And lastly, I especially love persian carpets with unexpected hues - like faded coral, bright pink, slate blue, or lime {and try to avoid those in the traditional deep red and navy color combo}.

Here are some of my favorite inspiration images . . . 

Love the contrast with the oversized black pendants and abstract painting!


This might just be my ultimate dream kitchen! 






We have a large natural sisal in our living room and would love to layer one of these small colorful persian rugs on top! Add it to the wish list . . . 

If you in the market, Erugs.com is actually a wonderful source and Etsy and Ebay are also often full of great finds!


Happy Friday Everyone!

Couldn't agree with you more - these are great - lots of contrast is fantastic. Awesome to see so many rugs! The first one is a Khotan, the next looks like a kilim, then a few afghan pieces, the kitchen shot looks like a Persian runner, then another kilim, bedroom has maybe a southeast Persian tribal rug, and a few more kilims.
