A new decor trend that has an enduring classicism – black and the deepest of charcoal greys, we might even count the inky blues in this category. Whatever the hue, dark moody colors decorate walls, fireplaces and even furnishings. You can select one area in your living room to create depth and elegance, and a bold swash of serious grown up beauty or you can go full in with a nigh sky wall…Enjoy our gallery of exceptional decorating ideas using these deep shades…

Discover Decorating Ideas-Mixing Modern with Persian, Moroccan + Oriental Style Rugs
Whether hand-woven antiques from established and reputable antique and vintage dealers, or found in estate sales, these handmade works of art are beautiful additions to any interior, traditional, spanish colonial, farmhouse and rustic modern, Scandinavian, retro mid-century modern, even contemporary. As well there are a number of fine companies offering beautiful rugs that are handmade abroad including India, Pakistan, Turkey Afghanistan, Iran and various other places. Many of the rugs while they reflect regional traditions including Persian decorative elements and Islamic architecture are made for export and show an admixture of signs, motifs, patterns, and artistic additions.
In no way would one wish to classify these contemporary works of art as “reproductions” or knock offs but rather a continuation of the rich artistic cultures of these amazing designers, weavers and artists. It’s quite amazing to see the creative reworking of multi-cultural motifs, patterns, and framing devices within each design.

If you live in a farmhouse style home or maybe an NYC apartment that has seen better days, add an abstract Moroccan style rug for a layered eclectic look and Bohemian flair. Love the contrast of black painted floors with the cream ground of this beautiful geometric woven carpet.
Here we see a lovely mix of a more traditional rug with an updated office chair, dark walls, industry style unfinished floor, and a farmhouse style desk. Wonderful!
