1. Using the Reds in Oushak Rugs

As you have seen in Martyn Lawrence Bullard’s room, the Oushak rug does not have to have a large amount of red for you to be able to decorate with red accents. Bullard used red in small accent pieces in keeping with the small amounts of red in the Oushak rug. But you can also experiment with using larger amounts of red. The best way to find out what works is to experiment and see what looks the best to you.

2. Decorating with Coral Colors in Oushak Rugs

Christina Murphy chose an Oushak rug rich with coral shades. Pulling from this, the bright coral chairs bring a burst of energy to the room. For the walls, a softer and pinker shade of coral was chosen both to provide a shade variation from the chairs and Oushak rug and also because the touch of cool pink in the coral balances the warm colors in the room.

3. Designing with Orange in the Oushak Rug

The above bedroom is rich with soft blues and greens, and a beautiful green throw blanket over the bed, provides the largest accent piece in the room. On the side tables there are further splashes of color in the plants, including the green hydrangeas, and in the blue vase and bowl. Otherwise, the room is soft and neutral, which make the pops of color that much energizing.

5. Add Beauty with Blue in Oushak Rugs

This room is designed around an Oushak rug with beautiful and subtle shades of blue. The distressed bright blue china cabinet draws the eye.

6. Subtle Color Oushak Rugs Make it Easy to Change Colors and Decor

Bringing the color out of an Oushak rug works best when the rest of the room is in very subtle and neutral shades. Not only does this allow the colors, even those as soft as the blue chair in image 5 to pop, but it makes it easy to make a shift when the need for a change arises. In the green room (image 4), for example, the switching out of the blanket and hydrangeas in favor of peach tones also found in the oushak rug can swiftly give the room a new feel. In this way, an oushak rug is a perfect choice. These rugs are rich in colors and shades that just need a few accent pieces to highlight them and because the best Oushak rugs contain many colors, you can easily change the colors in the room by playing wiith the other accent colors in an Oushak rug.
