I bought a throw rug, with a picture on it, actually a wilderness scene, and hung it on my wall. It looks great and very colorful.

Want to make your factory oriental rug/oriental runner look more authentic?

I have a red/black/cream colored one and I colored in select cream parts of the pattern in blue permanent marker to make it look more like my late lamented oriental rug that finally succumbed to the moths! This also works to restore old faded rugs, dealers have been doing it for years. (But don't use it on any rug that might be valuable!)

Typical fall about avocado green carpet (wall to wall?) and then add an accent runner or area rug over it that picks up all these colors. honey tan, brown, brick or go with a brick color carpet. and put your furniture on the side of walls with the honey color, so it stands out more.

I just bought a dark gray couch, and now have a dark gray/black rug underneath, but I can return the rug. Is this too much gray/black? Its a huge room with 2 story ceiling.

What other accent colors do you have in the room?

I personally like the rug but with the dark gray couch, dark coffee table and the dark rug it looks a little too much gray (dark).
