Vintage Over-dyed rugs
Let’s talk rugs. I have struggled with them in the past. On the whole, they are expensive and the choice is usually pretty limited. Yet, changing a rug in a room can be the singular most dramatic thing you can do apart from painting the walls as seen by the difference a raspberry pink rug made to my living room a year ago.
My current obsession is over-dyed vintage rugs. They are just so beautiful and come in the most vibrant colours. I love that they are a modern twist on an century old tradition.

I recently sourced a turquoise one for a client’s living room and it has lifted the entire space. Funnily the first item I bought for my office/studio is a stunning dark yet vibrant purple one (for those of you who have been following urban kaleidoscope for more than a year might remember it was the backdrop of my blog and one of my favourite colours) and I have recently bought one for my dining room which I am currently revamping. Stay tuned for the pictures.

Without the bold vintage rugs most of these rooms (even Anne Geistdorfer’s Parisian apartment which I love and have featured before) would be quite bland. What do you think?
