“Why don’t I just throw up on the floor and we can call that a rug?”
That’s what Andy said when I showed him a picture of the turkish kilim rugs I was considering for our office. While his suggestion would be more budget-friendly, I’d already become pretty attached to the idea of
1. Not having vomit on the floor and
2. The color and energy of a kilim rug.
I keep seeing these flat-woven Persian beauties popping up in home decor, and I think they’re charming and happy. I thought something colorful and graphic on the floor of our office could be a nice starting point and inspiration for the rest of the room.
I mean really – how stunning is this?
Or this cozy kitchen with its jaw-dropping rug?
Stop, you’re kilim me! (Har har. #ComedicGenius)
Now tell me – can you get this same effect with upchuck? I doubt it.
I found lots of affordable options and I’m ready to pull the trigger, except…
Hearing Andy’s reaction made me second-guess myself. Are these rugs “too much” or too busy? Do they have too much pattern, too much variation in color? Will I be sick of it in a month?
So I want to know your opinion in the comments section.
What’s your take on these turkish kilim rugs? Love ’em or hate ’em? Only like ’em in certain situations? Prefer Andy’s suggestion?
