Top 10 rugs

Those of you who follow me on Instagram or Facebook, will be getting truly sick and tired of my ‘new’ floor pics. In an effort to rejuvenate our flat and make it more practical for our dog (cream carpet plus long-haired dog that loves rolling in mud does not a good match make) we have removed our carpet. Instead of spending an absolute fortune on a wooden floor we decided to do a mammoth DIY spree over the Easter weekend and paint the MDF boards that are laid under the carpet. Lots more about that to come soon, but in the mean time I need to choose some rugs to add a bit of colour to the room and give some softness under foot.

Until now, I did not realise how difficult it is to find a decent rug that doesn’t cost the price of a small house and isn’t as boring and dull as can be. So, I have spent HOURS trawling the internet and finally decided on this one for the main living area that I bought this from Etsy by searching for ‘vintage kilim rugs’.

I haven’t quite made it to 10 – I am seriously rug picky! If you have any favourite rugs, do let me know, especially hallway runners as I desperately need one.

    I totally hear you on the rug hunting!! I love the one you picked for your living room, beautiful colors! I recently picked up a rug for my office from Urban Outfitters for $80 I think. I didn’t want something that I would mind things being spilled on – paint, glue, etc. and I’m really happy with it.

      I had a look at the rugs in Urban Outfitters and they are such good value! I just couldn’t find one there in the colour I wanted. I hope mine will withstand mess and stains too – the busier the better! 🙂

      Thanks, Rachael! I just hope it’s as nice in real life – it’s being sent from Turkey so I couldn’t see it before I bought it. Fingers crossed 😉 x
