If you have a space that is calling out for an oriental rug, but needs something more
muted than the characteristic bright designs and colors, perhaps you should consider a
white or silver washed rug. The beauty of intricate patterns and geometric design will still
bring style and charm to your room, but the special wash process produces a patina effect
over the original colors to match a more conservative style. These rugs may well remain a
focal point, but the muted colors bring forward a warming charm rather than a bright,
bold statement. They are also a great addition to a space that requires an older, vintage
look without the added price of antique rugs and being new, they will last much longer.
