We are absolutely in love with the way designer Megan Miller styled this Persian rug! Layering a smaller rug over a larger neutral-toned rug like this is just perfect. (You can get another view of this amazing design choice here.) Small details like this make a room look so unique and well-designed.
We pulled together some of our favorite colorful Persian rugs so you can get this look if you love it as much as we do!
This handmade rug is a 100-year-old Persian Malayer with the most charming distress (we call wear and tear like that beauty marks!) Note: marks like this are not damage, they are simply side effects of being (very) vintage. Think of details like this as a patina on a leather bag.
This is a kilim-style Afghan rug, so it's really thin and intricate. The watermelon mixed with black and khaki makes it the most delightful, space-brightening rug!
Speaking of natural wear-and-tear, this rug's markings could not be more beautiful. The differences in coloration bring so much character to a room, and a rug like this is truly one of a kind. Also, those colors!
If you're layering rugs like our design inspiration by Megan Miller, don't be afraid to play with patterns. When it comes to rugs, the more textures the better!
