Explore Tonal Decorating with Green Rugs and Damask Rugs

The 17th century Italian damask pattern of this green rug is colored with hundreds of subtle shades so it works as a neutral canvas. I can easily update the decor in the future by merely re-painting the walls and changing the fabrics to focus on different shades of green and different styles using the same damask rug.

A popular decorating trend in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor and Veranda is tone on tone décor.  More often than not these magazines feature rooms layered in whites, creams or beiges and the effect can be stunning. But is this to say that a room is chic only if is eliminates all color?  I would argue no. 

Tone on tone design is an intriguing means of exploring various shades and hues of one color family.  Be it red, blue or yellow, restricting a design palette allows you to explore color subtleties.  In this case I’ve chose to explore the possibilities of green, using Asmara’s Como damask rug as a neutral canvas.
