Oriental rugs

Happy Friday all! So happy this week’s almost done. How was your week? Mine was pretty exciting and busy and the weekend looks like will be the same. But that’s a good thing :). A Friday post for you about oriental rugs, as lately I’ve been drawn to them a lot, because they’re just fabulous! Everything about them is perfection: the patterns, the texture and the popping warm colors are somethings every home would appreciate a lot! And the catchiest part about oriental rugs is that they look killer in a modern space, creating an edgy contrast which will only increase your home’s stylish coziness! And although my home country’s culture involved pretty much decorating with oriental rugs (which means I lived all my life having a fabulous ethnic rug in my room), I now look at them in a different way, loving more its look and effect. Here are a few examples of oriental rugs in modern spaces.

Now let me ask you how do you feel about oriental rugs? Would you go with one in your home or you just don’t feel they appeal to you?

    I like the brighter option of the colourways in the third rug as they fit with my asthetic more. My mum would love the first one! Have a great weekend, Ludmila!

    Definitely love! But you really need to be careful with the colors and the overall styling of the room so it doesn’t become stuffy. I have a gorgeous antique rug I bought for a funny price (in a thrift store) waiting to be vaccumed…

    I love all of these images and I love oriental rugs. However, I do not think many on these images can be considered “modern”. The first one and last one I would consider modern but everything else is more transitional, contemporary, and eclectic. I love these rugs though and agree that they really can look great in any type of setting.

    Oh you bet they appeal to me!! I love a worn-looking oriental rug like the one in the 4th picture. I feel like they had sophistication to a space! Thanks for all this eye candy and have a great weekend!
