The colour scheme is the first thing to consider in your Persian themed room. Be prepared to choose bold colours, such as dark reds, deep, rich burgundy, terracotta, indigo or emerald greens as your base colours.

You can also consider purchasing a special style of paint that gives surfaces a slightly worn, antique looking finish, without looking tacky.

These usually have intricately designed patterns, with rich and metallic colour schemes similar to the colour scheme of the room. Try to choose a colour that is a bit different from the colours of the walls, so that the colours of the hanging don’t get “swallowed” by colours of the wall, but be careful not to choose a pattern that will clash with the rest of the decor.
