In our lives and in our homes, the best things in life are quite often the ones that stand the test of time.

When it comes to flooring, we think that nothing can make a huge statement quite like a fabulous rug. And, when it comes to rugs, a beautiful Oriental or Persian rug, like those from Fine Rug Collection are the perfect foundation.

The classic color tones and unique patterns in these beautiful rugs are immediately eye catching and help anchor a room.

When in doubt, we adore a neutral rug with a beautiful pattern. This rug makes the lady’s dressing room in the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles showhouse. (Well, in fairness, the rest of the room isn’t so bad either!)

The color palette of this beautiful study is calm, soothing and very restful. The bleached rug is a wonderful complement to the tones of the wood and furniture.

We know many, many designers that advise to start with the floor when designing a room and then plan the rest of the room around the colors on the floor. We love how this rug becomes the pop of color in an otherwise neutral office space.

An antique in every room is a great rule to live by, but that can be a little tricky in the kitchen. Why not try an antique rug?

Antique rugs, like wine, to us, only get better with time. We love them best when they are very warm and even a little bit threadbare, when the vibrant colors have faded a bit.

A lovely rug is a great way to make an entrance–even at the back door.

And a stunning mat-sized rug is the ideal complement to this unbelievable wooden tub. It tops off the British Colonial feel in style! 

Are you a fan of Oriental rugs? Do you have any in your house? Do you prefer them fresh, bright and new or with a little age on them? Visit our friends at Fine Rug Collection for our favorite Orientals, Persians and more modern rugs as well.
