What interior decorators are doing with Purple Persian Rugs

For a rug that features purple, you can begin your design planning by thinking about the component colors, red and blue. If your space already features one of those two shades prominently, your Purple Persian Rug will likely complement well.

Though this rug may be too colorful to fit cleanly in a typical modern home, keep in mind that those clean, stylistic elements can bring the room’s focus to the warm colors and designs of your rug, giving you an interior look all your own.
