Refresh Your Room with Oriental Rugs!

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.

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. 

Studio McGee

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?

Historical Concepts


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.

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. See you tomorrow!

House Tour: English Cottage

entrance Cloth and Kind

Krista Nye Schwartz and Tami Ramsay, the co-owners and principal interior designers behind Cloth & Kind, have been inspired since their childhoods by international travel and the natural world.

foyer Cloth and Kind

One glance at their fantastic interiors, like this reimagined English Cottage, and it is clear that integrating treasured and well-loved relics into their designs is a priority for this dynamic duo.

Cloth and Kind living room

Neutral basics combine with luscious pops of color and pattern to create a space that is at once unique and easy to change as the mood–or trip–strikes!

Cloth and Kind dining room

Modern chairs and light fixture combine with a classic farmhouse table and an assortment of artistic pillows for a banquette that is as unique as the family that spends its meals there.

Open shelving gives a feeling of openness, and this marble island is too luxe for words!

A charming room for dreaming big. Just a few simple touches turn this from a boring bedroom into a child’s imaginative play space.
