that rug really tied the room together

I’ve been absorbed by looking for the perfect rug lately. It will really tie the room together 😉

There are so many different to choose from…

  1. Great, great, great post, Emelie! I am a huuuge fan of oriental rugs so it is like a present for me 🙂 You found same amazing rugs! It’s interesting to see now a trend for overdyed rugs – they actually appeared in the XIX century as a result of synthetic dyes invention. At that time artificial dyes were really weak and after few years all colours just melted together which created a very interesting look though. This also explains the unusual palette – these kind of rugs usually were coloured in bright pink, emerald, purple, orange – colours which couldn’t be achieved with natural colorants. Once again, thank you!

      Thank you =) I didn’t know that about the overdyed rugs, very interesting, thanks for sharing! I just had an oriental rug delivered today, so there will be a picture of it up soon!

      • Oh really? In which country is it made? Will be very interesting to see the picture. I also ordered a custom oriental rug which they are weaving at the moment and will be ready by end of March- can’t wait to see it in my room (I will post picture too). We sell handmade oriental rugs in our boutique – so it is our passion 🙂

  2. That first room is so rustic, but pulled together. I love it! It feels like there are all these stories there, waiting to be written…
