I must find a rug solution. The living room is coming together – the yellow curtains have injected the space with an energy, and its been nice to arrive at the abstract vision that was slowly building in my mind. I don’t know how you guys work when you’re putting a room together, but I’m pretty sllllooooowww to arrive at my final destination. The amazing thing – is that Kate and I are putting together the entire home with super cheap thrifty finds, good sales, and curb side treasures.
Next up, a Rug!. As much as I would love to wait to see if we can get lucky – I’m pretty sure this is one piece that we will need to drop some cash on, as we have done with the curtains. Hopefully we can get matched up with what we want as awesomely as we did with our curtains from Jamie at Furbish.
This dhurrie from Anthropologie is pretty perfect in design and color. I’m mixing heavily patterned accessories with a lot of solid furniture. I have a bent toward what I commonly refer to as Gypsy Decor. I don’t know – I made that up. They travel, and I’m stuck in an apartment going to the same job every day.
The kilims from the Rose Bowl were pretty hard to walk away from that day. But I don’t have the tenacity for Ebay. Perhaps I’ll have to make another Rose Bowl trip with some resolve to walk away with one. ??
There’s also this DIY post from Jenny at LGN that has my wheels spinning a bit. This could turn out to be a disaster, but at least it wouldn’t cost so much. I enjoy a chevron pattern, but I might even tape out something a little more like the Anthro rug pictured above.
There is a fantasy of an Angela Adams rug, (designer rugs that I love and will likely never own)….. but we can just take a look again. I dig her simple geometric patterns as well as the ornate scenery from the Birds & The Bees collection.
Last thought, is a large floral from Anthropologie.
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
