Imagine this: you fell asleep and woke up in a magical house that looks like it’s out of a fairytale, with all the magic and wonders. Your eyes feel overwhelmed; everything is diverse, distinct and attractive. And now, you don’t want to go back to your real home.
How would you feel?
But what if we say your real home can be turned picture-perfect with just a rug?
Don’t believe us? Look at these awe-inspiring rug décor ideas below:
First of all, you need to find beautiful handmade shawl rugs, or any other type of handmade rug that goes with the style and color scheme of your house.
The easiest way to do this is by searching for handmade rugs online. You will find many potential direct dealers who import handmade shawl rugs from Kerman – the main center of rugs in Iran.
Once you have found the perfect shawl rug, the next step is placing it in the perfect way in your living room.
Afterwards, you can start decorating your living room with lamps, chairs and a coffee table. These décor items can make or break your entire interior décor, so choose wisely.
You can rely on color psychology to choose the best color that not only aligns with your indoor decor but is also easy on the eyes.
The next step is to get a few wall decor things and make sure you have enough space for everyone’s shoes (because you won’t want the dirt and dust to damage your precious handmade rug).
At first sight, handmade shawl rugs look like works of art; they are durable, unique, appealing, and come in many colors and materials – such as natural cotton or wool. If properly designed, they make any space inside the house look vibrant and attractive. That is why our professional team has decided to share some ideas on how to decorate your living room with handmade rugs:
The main idea here is to be creative and pick carefully the pieces that will go into this space. To get an idea of how to decorate your living room with handmade rugs, check out some examples below:
One of the most important things in any living room is the coffee table. It is actually one of the first things people notice about your house when they walk in! That’s why it’s very important to make a good first impression by choosing a nice rug for this area.
The best way would be to go for something simple and neutral that will easily blend into your space without distracting from all the other details inside the house. Handmade shawl rugs are perfect for this task as they come in various sizes and can fit under your feet but also tie different pieces together.
If your living room is also a space where you welcome guests, it’s a good idea to decorate the entrance path to it. This way, people will feel welcomed and relaxed once they step inside your house.
Also, you’re a well-decorated entrance would help make a good first impression on your guests.
And the best part is: runner rugs are easy to clean.
Last but not least, you’d want to create a warm atmosphere by having rugs on the floor of the living room. This will be a great way to decorate your house and give people a cozy feeling inside. You can also put a rug in front of the fireplace if you have one. And, of course, if you don’t want to use it for decor but also for function, you can easily use it as an area to place the TV or some extra furniture.
Smaller Rugs for the Various Areas: Another good idea is to put a few smaller rugs elsewhere in your living room for extra decoration. This way, you can define different areas of your space or define the main one.
Couple Area Rugs: For couches or other areas where you would love to lie down, it’s a good idea to add some area rugs. They will not only look nice but they’ll also be very comfortable, too!
The Right Pieces: When decorating your living room with handmade rugs, do not forget to pick carefully the pieces that will go into this space. It is always better to keep the right pieces than get rid of them later on!

The final, but not least important step is to add some homely details that make a house a home – knick knacks, curiosities or accessories. You can never have too many of these things in your life!
Shawl Rugs added, the flowers and paintings added, your hallway is decorated and voilà, here you are: your living room looks like something out of a fairytale just like you want!
Pro Tip: Add a Few Plants and Paintings to Enhance Your Décor
The next step would be to add a few plants and paintings on the wall. This will only increase the uniqueness of your living room.
Go for a unique motif that you love but would never wear on your clothes; like vivid flowers or geometric patterns.
Once you have chosen the painting, it’s time to pick the right color scheme. For living rooms, we always recommend staying within three main colors (blue, red and green). They will look amazing together! It is also a good idea to use some bright accent colors, especially if there are any paintings on the wall.
So what about adding a few flower arrangements? This can be done easiest by buying fresh cut flowers from a local florist and putting them in a nice vase. As long as they’re placed carefully, they’ll look amazing!
And that’s it. You’re done and you can sit and relax and let the magic of your living room shine through! Of course, we also recommend having a table with some nice treats for everyone invited…
