rug love

Hey y'all I'm busy swimming with BabyGirl in the big pool this afternoon.
Yes, I do mean swim.  
She prefers to be escorted around the big pool with one hand under her tum so she can float and kick her legs and move her arms like the big kids.  She even dips her little face in the water right on cue.
She must have watched a strokes clinic and wanted in on the action.

Anyway, I've got a guest here for you to keep you occupied during my absence!
Have you noticed the trend of kilim, dhurrie and persian rugs in the kitchen? I personally have a galley kitchen with maple cabinets and tile flooring that would def not suffer from a nice warm, colorful rug. These gorgeous rugs are hot right now and are so cheery with their bright, inviting colors. Unfortunately, an authentic antique rug can run you a pretty penny, but you can get printed and/or non-antique versions for much less and without the guilt that accidently dropping a jar of marina on one might bring.

  1. I used to think that I was not a fan of these kinds of rugs...but boy, have I been converted!!! They bring so much color and such a cool element to a 'em!

  2. I am a convert also! Another great find that was found just after I sent this post to Julia is the Flutter Pattern Rug from Anthropologie; definitely a keeper!

  3. what awesome carpets!!! I'm a huge fan of these kinds of carpets! A lovely Persian carpet can bring very much color to a living room.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
