Rug Affair

I seem to have an on again, off again love-affair with Persian/Kilim rugs.

Well at the moment it is back ON.

They're an easy way to add colour and texture to any room, and they have this organic feel to them that instantly cozies up your space. 

What sealed the deal for me (momentarily at least) was after seeing Adam Levine's home in Architectural Digest this past weekend. 

I was never a fan of his before, but the fact he lives in this space makes me thinks he's maybe okay...

Everything about this room is perfection - and for me the rug is one of the major statements.

I've recently been craving the more cozy, casual feel for my home and these rugs definitely do it for me. (Partially why I always flip-flop as I jump between formal and non quite often)

Anyways, I thought I'd throw together a room with a few different options just for fun!


Rug: 1stdibs

Sofa:Red, Side Tables:Jonathan Adler, Coffee Table:1stdibs, Chairs:DWR, Stools:Asadeh Shladovsky, Lamps:Ralph Lauren, Art:Sandy Ostroff, Bust:Kelly Wearstler

Hope you enjoyed!



  1. Loooove the look of these. I'm on the hunt for one with reds, pinks, and black. For an affordable price!

  2. Oh my gosh, you and I really are on the same's kind of weird. We really should meet some day. I've been looking for a Persian rug for my dining room. I feel it will add more depth and sophistication. Lindsey from Sadie + Stella just got a great one from ESaleRugs - Brandy
