Oooooh la la. I’m having a great time this morning researching rugs. Last night, I came across a blog (sorry…for the life of me, I can’t remember which one) that featured a picture of a gorgeous Amy Butler rug, and then I was off like Alice down the rabbit hole into the world of rugs. Most of the ones that really caught my eye were modern interpretations of vintage designs.
What I want to know is, where on earth are all these amazing homes? You’ll see what I mean.
I thought this first image of Vivienne Westwood‘s Love Heart rug for The Rug Company was appropriate considering our Valentine’s Day Necklace Giveaway is coming up rapidly! Don’t forget to leave comments
The Rug Company, from Britain, has a huge collection of the most amazing rugs by top designers. Take a look at their website and you won’t believe how much time you can spend just sifting through the pictures. I really like Marni‘s rug designs. Notice the white pouf (the marshmallow-like floor cushion…please correct me if I’m using the wrong term for it)? They’re hot right now. I’m seeing them everywhere, upholstered in a kaleidescope of fabrics.
I love the rug, I love the bed, and I LOVE the crocheted coverlet.
Amy Butler’s Coventry rug inspired me to write this post. Her designs incorporate wonderful colors and such bold graphics. They’re like works of art.
Must have entire room….STAT!!!! I love you, Kim Parker. Her rug, Mums and Asters, was voted one of “The 50 Most Desireable Objects in British Design”. Awesome.
Did I mention I love Kim Parker?
That’s it! Sandra Bullock’s out…Kim Parker’s my new BFF
On its own, I don’t think I would have taken a second look at this geometric rug by Matthew Williamson, but combined with everything else, it just sings!
Designer Rugs, an Australian company, has some beautiful rugs. I love this linked pattern (I really have a thing for pink, don’t I?).
Just thought I’d finish off with another gorgeous Amy Butler rug. It really works with the mid-century style teak chair
Something tells me I’m going to have to save A LOT of pop cans and get a paper route to afford any one of these little lovelies in my home.
