Sneak Peek: Best of Rugs

1TuppennyFarm
Last week, inspired by a Turkish rug at furniture shop Nightwood, Grace came up with the idea for our readers to share their favorite rugs (#DSNiceRug). We thought you might like some more inspiration, so I dug through our Sneak Peek archives to find some gems to share. Not surprisingly, I discovered an abundance of covetable rugs. Here are 31 of my favorites. -Shannon

Honestly…you could put that West Elm Moroccan rug in a crack house, and it would look fantastic! Love that rug!

Anne

Suddenly trying to hold back that urge to cover everything, absolutely everything, in gorgeous rugs and tapestries… I loved seeing the ways in which the different rugs helped to make a room unique and really brought out the personality of the owners!

Forget the rugs… WHERE CAN I FIND THAT DACHSHUND ART IN THE VERY FIRST PHOTO ABOVE?!?!?

A compilation to be remembered! Pretty hard to tell which one’s the best rug/space. While I find Aileen Cheng’s mid-century living room to die for, I’ve been an admirer of Kate Schintzius and her bold maximalism for a while now. On the other hand, I fell deeply in love with Ingrid Weir’s home at first sight and last but not least I can’t get enough of boucherouite rugs! Like I said… it’s tough to pick a favorite.
