Beautiful Large Blue Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Modern – Blue is a color that designers turn to when they want to create a feeling of calm in the space. The color blue has been shown to create a feeling of peacefulness and serenity that has a positive effect on our well-being. The gorgeous, earthy blues of this large size rug are reminiscent of water and create a natural feel that evokes a sense of being out in nature in the home.
Now, designers consider blue to be the new neutral color. They are using it in many ways that break ideas about traditional color combinations, which allows them to use it in a way that expands design possibilities. This philosophy allows blue to serve as the foundation of the room design.
Blue is a color that always evokes feelings of sky and water. It gives the room a feeling of expansiveness in the same way that being out in nature does, and it evokes that same feeling within us. The blues of this modern Moroccan style rug gently shift to create watery ripples that are reminiscent of a calming garden pool or lake. The artist borrowed a soft geometric design from the Berber rug weavers of Morocco and superimposed it onto a background of shifting blues. The effect is reminiscent of the formal pools that that were once found in the courtyards and entrances of palatial estates of sultans and kings.
The design is reminiscent of these inspiring, ancient spaces, but the artist used these ideas in a way that is both modern and perfect for today’s streamlined open-plan architecture. The modern area rug was inspired by mid-century modern tribal masterpieces, but it is carried out in a way that adds texture and softness to modern interiors.
This inspired Moroccan area rug could easily pair with saturated colors, or you could combine it with lighter grays and neutrals for a more composed, gracious feel. This gorgeous piece is versatile, and it is the perfect addition for creating a space that is relaxing and a place to get away from the outside world for a time.
