It's fundamental principles - emphasis, balance, rhythm, contrast, proportion and harmony - notwithstanding, the art of interior design is concerned with the interrelationships and functionality of objects within a given space - and specifically in terms of style, type, size and color. Additionally, the coordinating and arrangement of those elements in any interior typically involves the selection and placement of furniture, fabrics and, last but not least, the Oriental rug.
Perhaps the most practical way to decorate a room is to start with the oriental rug - especially if the rug will occupy the majority of the room's floor space - be sure to leave at least two feet of floor space around the perimeter of the rug. Choose a dominant color, a secondary color and an accent color from the carpet, an entire color and design scheme can thus be derived from the rug - including the upholstery, wall coverings, and window treatments. Similarly, a rug's pattern can inspire the particular furniture style to be used.
For either residential or commercial decors, an Oriental area rug helps define, enhance and anchor a room - serving as a focal point - plus they are a great way to add color, texture and comfort to your home. Just as an Oriental area rug makes a definitive floor covering fashion statement, Nejad, with an inventory of over 30,000 rugs in stock, offers a definitive source of Oriental rugs - available in an endless array of styles, patterns, shapes, colors and color combinations.

Yes the room-sized carpet can certainly be introduced into the mix at any stage of the process - even last. Incorporating the modern area rug into an existing decor is now virtually problem-free thanks to the infinite variety available. And most importantly, imagination and the freedom to be creative are first and foremost. Experiment!
