Rug, How I Love Thee

Do you ever have those moments before a big change or "adult" decision that make you feel like you are playing house? Say, when you are about to buy a house? It's hard to believe. The offer on our new home has been submitted and now it's just a waiting game to see what the seller thinks.

The prospect of decorating a new home when we don't own a single piece of furniture is nerve-racking and completely exciting all at the same time. Part of me worries that we are going to spend months eating off of a cardboard box with a sad little lamp and a mattress on the floor, but the other half is screaming, "LET'S GO BUY OUT EVERY IKEA AND FLEA MARKET IN CANADA!"

Consulting my Pinterest boards, as every design-obsessed girl does, has made it easier to narrow down how I would decorate my home (in a perfect world...with endless amounts of money). One of the common denominators in almost all of the photos I've saved for inspiration is colorful, patterned rugs. I would put one, even two, in every room if I could. Thank god for eBay because those puppies aren't cheap.

While I scour the net for (somewhat) reasonably priced kilim and graphic rugs, check out these lust-worthy homes that nailed it in the rug department.

I'll continue to share bits and pieces of design that I find inspiring and that will *hopefully* begin to get incorporated into our new home. Stay tuned!
