Perfect prints: Amazing area rugs

Like everyone else on the internets, I was excited to see the new issue of Lonny go live this past week and spent a lovely Sunday morning perusing all the pretty photos of fabulous rooms.  What struck me most about some of the spaces is how well a colorful, graphic area rug makes the room feel warm and interesting.

Both are examples of the look I want to achieve in my home (when the big bucks start rolling in).  I currently own one large wool rug, a chocolate brown and cream damask print, and have been itching to sell it and upgrade to something more colorful.  And since I like nothing better than to internet window shop, I'm going to share them with you too.  Here are some of my favorites, price be damned.  (Although none cost as much as a Kia)

I can't even start to choose.  I could build rooms around any one of them!  Which is your favorite?

  2. My favorite store for rugs-- Overstock.com! They have a huge selection, a wide range of (great) prices, and no higher that $2.95 shipping!

    Me and my love-of-neutral-self tends to lean toward jute and sea grass. Though this is what we have in our living room--

  4. The purple Greek Key!!! Although I will say, my mama bought me a 6-color rug when I moved into my apartment and while I was skeptical at first, I love how versatile it is and how much it brightens up a room!
