Persian Rugs and Tapestries

Love love love the rich combination of ornate rugs and wall hangings.  The reds, the golds, the scenes of unicorns and maidens- each a work of art! 

The combination of decorative textiles on the floor and the walls gives a space a unique combination of both grandness and warmth.  They can make a room look stately and important , but also cozy and inviting. How happy!

Not every home can pull off such a look. My 1980s era apartment in Los Angeles, for example, does not have the right bones for it. In order to do the rugs and tapestries justice, the home has to bring some character of its own. (Fingers-crossed that the next place I live will have some character!)
