Decorating with Navajo Rugs: Tips and Ideas

Decorating with Navajo rugs is really limited only by your creativity and square footage! You can of course use Navajo rugs as floor coverings, but (especially with rarer or more delicate pieces) they are also lovely on the wall or even draped on a couch or used as a table runner. They work well in homes that have a more traditional style, but they work equally well in more modern, clean-lined homes–offering a pop of color and pattern.

The sky is really the limit when it comes to decorating with Navajo rugs. A runner in front of the kitchen sink, a wall hanging in your study, a large-scale rug in your living room.
