Even though the hustle and bustle of Christmas is upon us, I haven’t given up on my (pipe) dream of having my office finished by the end of the year. So far, I have cleared the office of the clutter, installed a Herringbone wood wall, painted the ceiling and other walls, and transformed a few pieces of furniture (updates on those coming soon). Whew!
I still have a few things to do, including building my own (very ambitious) light fixture, but items are quickly being marked off of my to do list. One of those items is finding a rug for the room.
I really love the overdyed rug trend happening right now, so that’s the route I’m going for my office. Generally, these rugs feature traditional patterns with a super saturated dye that has been poured on the top. You can buy a vintage rug that has been dyed for mega bucks (like this many: $$$$$$). Or, you can choose a mass produced version with a more budget-friendly price (more like this: $$$). Whichever you choose, the bright colors and distressed areas bring a modern twist to traditional styling.
And they are oh, so Lindsay, don’t you think?
The rugs don’t always have a traditional oriental pattern to them, though. Check out these beauties:
Squeee! These rugs just make me so happy. I even started a Pinterest board with some more faves.
I bit the bullet and bought one of these beauties for my office. It’s currently on it’s way to my house. Any guesses as to the one I picked?
PS. I’ve heard from other blogging buddies that Rugs USA has great sales. At the time of writing this post, a lot of these rugs were on sale for 50% off. I don’t know how long that will last or how often it happens.
