Carpet - different colours in 2 rooms

I had some carpet installed in my home. The colour in the living room is slightly different than in an adjoining room. I need to find something to go across the floor so they are separated. At my friend's house, they have some metal type thing that separates 2 rooms with different colour carpet and it doesn't look bad at all. Does anyone know what this is called? I've found joiners that can be used going from carpet to tile or carpet to wood but not carpet to carpet. Can anyone help??

Also how could I install this bar type thing when concrete is below the carpet? I don't know if I would be able to drill nails through the concrete or not?

There are all kinds and colors of wood and metal thresholds that will do this, but I don;t see why you want to put such an eye catching obstruction between the rooms. Usually the two rugs are just seemed together under the position of he closed door.

Look at Lowes and Home Depot to see the common options.
