As a good starting point, invest in a large Oriental rug which will be the focal point for the room. You can use the colours found in the rug to help you co-ordinate other accessories, but first you have to choose the rug itself.
You may decide on a bold Chinese rug dragon design but if you have a dramatic pattern like this don’t overdo it elsewhere.
Or what about a going for gold? You can find rugs with elaborate gold patterns which would not look out of place in an Emperor’s palace. If this is your choice go easy on the rest of the room’s pieces.
The resulting space should be the perfect place for you to chill out and fall into a meditative state of total relaxation. And if you want to go one step further and balance the energies in your room -- you can also apply feng shui principles. But that’s another story…….
