rug it

To persian, or not to persian? That is the question I put to you.


What do you think of a persian rug in my space? I really need a rug for the lounge room. The carpet is a little bit worn and it would be nice to save it from more wear. I have a modern space. Quite white, and want to add a wow factor. Persian rugs were always in my home growing up. My mum had a thing for them. I never really thought of them much, but now I need a rug and the persian is on my mind.


I went looking last week. That is the same day I gave my car the pedicure. I was just leaving. I am not sure if this is a sign, or more a sign of my tiredness on that day. There will be eventually a new couch. It will be charcoal, but that will come after the rug. I am thinking red in the persian.

So do I persian?

  1. Go the Persian- they are beautiful, storytelling things and last a lifetime. Even if your place is fresh, white and modern a Persian will still suit. Good luck on the hunt. PS. Today is my first official day of wearing my Saltwaters, it's 28degrees here in Melbourne!

  2. I love a beautiful persian rug - I think they're elegantly bohemian.

    And I understand it can be a wee bit disturbing when you hit 'real' adulthood and start adopting your parents' taste (?). Don't let that deter you. :)

  6. Persians are fantastic! I have had one for ten years now and wherever we have moved it's jazzed up the space. We have pretty modern stuff too, but somehow it still works. They are like a classic handbag for your room! Goes with everything

  7. A big yes from me! Have a look at the rugs at Loom - to die for! I am thinking one of the overdyed vintage for your space? I'm often drooling over their site, thanks for the excuse to go window shopping again ;)

  8. I've never had a persian rug...it would not hold up with my kids. :) But, I think it would be beautiful in your home. Hope that you are well dear friend. xoxo, Kristi

  11. Yes, go for it. Persian Rugs are so beautiful and we always had them in our home growing up too. Then when hubby and I bought our first house, we invested in one of our own too. I think they look awesome when in a contemporary area too and look better as they get older and more worn and well-loved.
    As mentioned above, you should definitely check out Loom too... they have such amazing unique pieces.
    We also just bought a new Nicola Cerini rug for the lounge/play room.
    Have a fab wkend.. x
