TREND TO TRY: PERSIAN RUGS EVERYWHERE
Not only are Persian (or Oriental) rugs an utterly chic and timeless decor staple, they’re surprisingly versatile. They add color, texture and interest to a variety of rooms (kitchen! bathroom!) and work across different interior styles, too.
Lean more minimal or modern? Adding a Persian rug can help to ground your neutrals, or add a pop of color and interest. They also work splendidly in a Bohemian setting… tell people you picked it up at a market while traveling, even if it came from Home Goods. And, of course, Persian rugs blend seamlessly into traditional homes, especially in dining rooms or formal living areas. Thanks to their rich colors and ornate patterns, Persian rugs add a touch of luxury to pretty much any space.
Don’t believe me? Check out these inspiring ways to decorate with Persian rugs, from the kitchen to the bedroom and (nearly) everywhere in between:
DECORATE WITH PERSIAN RUGS IN… THE KITCHEN
DECORATE WITH PERSIAN RUGS IN… THE DINING ROOM
DECORATE WITH PERSIAN RUGS IN… THE BEDROOM
DECORATE WITH PERSIAN RUGS IN… THE BATHROOM
YOU CAN EVEN DECORATE WITH PERSIAN RUGS IN… THE CLOSET
While many Persian rug designs can cost thousands and thousands of dollars, there are also plenty of chic and affordable options out there from retailers like Urban Outfitters, Rugs USA, Overstock.com and more. Stick to a low-pile rug (that is, not super fluffy) for easy cleaning. If you have a little bit more to spend and want to invest, snag an authentic vintage Oriental rug if you can — they have that wonderful worn-in, boho-luxe vibe. Check sites like One Kings Lane for gorgeous vintage options online.
