Apartment Therapy suggests “If you prefer neutral rooms, an oriental rug can provide just the right amount of color and spark. And because their patterns and colors are so detailed and layered, such rugs have a way of playing off colors elsewhere in the room. A blue lamp will draw out a previously unnoticed bluish hue embedded in an oriental carpet.”

Manhattan Nest blog suggest “The most important thing is to consider (when picking a traditional rug) is color…rugs tend to have such interesting designs that sometimes you can get so caught up in the patterns that you forget to focus on the palette.” Pick colors that bring out the best in your room and accessories. You can have fun with bright colors or go classic chic with deeper, sophisticated hues.

When it comes to patterns there are variations, but typically lean towards more symmetrical geometry that lend toward balancing a room.You can have very tribal bold shapes as will as softer geometric florals.
