Is that kilim? Looks like it, I adore kilim and this lovely pattern combination, so sharp, and it sets off the gray beautifully!

What a clever way to display bits and pieces of found treasures. Often older rugs aren't useable for a whole room but this would be the answer for a rug that you loved and could not pass up. Great idea, Kathysue

Hey, maybe this is what I can do with the red kilim rug no longer in my boy's room! I would love nothing more than to rip the carpet off my stairs, what a beautiful and unusual staircase.

Fabulous stairs, reminds me alot of a beautiful country hotel in Somerset (UK) - Charlton House, where we got engaged

Oh yes! A little worn Orientalism on wooden floors or teamed with grey is just what a girl needs! Luv it!

I love the light and the runer, i always kind of thought oriental rugs were kind of stuffy but they actually are very modern when paired with the right thing!

La Dolfina said...

I agree, really great idea!!
It totally works and is fresh!

LOVE that idea of the runners going up the stairs. Glad to find your blog. I just did a post on Yellow & Grey or Gray.

Beautiful. Love the woodwork in that color.

Bailey@ peppermintbliss said...

That runner is so hot, if I lived here I would just laze about on the stairs caressing it! Is that strange?

Acanthus Eve said...

OMG my room is a deep blue grey and I sooo want a rug like this for beside the bed. I love!
