Hey there, friends! It’s been a busy week for Legacy and RAIN RAIN RAIN for days, so a painting project I’d hoped to share isn’t quite share-able today. BUT… I did want to share a design idea I just can’t quit these days… oriental rugs in the kitchen.
I was first intrigued with this a few years back when I spotted this image on Joan’s blog for the love of a house…
Which, by the way, if you don’t follow her blog — do it! And you’ll want to spend some time reading through her archives and the story of their New Hampshire farmhouse. Charming.
Anyway, if your kitchen is like mine rugs take a beating. I’ve blown through several different inexpensive rugs over the years. And it dawned on me recently that a well made oriental rug would most likely have more staying power — at least for us. One I can spot clean as needed, but the pattern would probably disguise drips and so forth, and that could stand a good cleaning periodically.
As it happened, once I started that thought process, I was suddenly spotting this design idea in magazines, on Instagram, and on Pinterest. I am probably behind the curve — or the trend? — but the more of this I see, the more I am finding it hard to resist. 🙂
I find myself especially drawn to the slightly worn and faded rugs… And though it’s not really in my budget right now, as I look to replace our current kitchen rug, I can’t help shopping vintage kilim and oriental rugs. I mean, a girl can dream right?
Have a great day, y’all!
