If you are fortunate to have a blank slate in your room, why not start with the rug, and build the decor around it? This is a great way to start with a bold color, such as orange, yellow, or red and then bring in pops of color in home decor accessories around the room. Consider using neutrals on the walls in whites, beiges, grays, or coffee tans to make the dominant color sing throughout your space. The wonderful point about starting with the floor is it gives you a chance to build a home piece by piece, rather than getting overwhelmed with the rug, furniture, walls, and window treatments all at once!

A splendid carpet was discovered in 1949 during excavations at the 5th mound – one of the carpets of the period ahemenida which was kept until today at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
