I have a six panel oriental screen that I had been so concerned about using in the living area. I was afraid the multitude of colors might not work with my oriental rug and new sofa and accent chairs. This article has given me the confidence to move forward layering and mixing an matching colors to create a room blooming with subdued but many hued oriental colors creating movement and atmosphere.
