Hey, pretty blue rug …

blue overdyed rug

Yesterday, I got a couple emails about the rug that you couldn’t really see too well in the post, so I figured I’d feature it. Give it a little shout out, tell you a little story about said rug.

We knew we wanted something that was not crazy graphic and no bold patterns — not that I don’t like them, but if you want your bedroom to remain calm, you want to avoid big high contrast patterns. So we started looking at solids and simply couldn’t find the color we wanted; they were either too dark so they looked black, or baby blue. In a perfect world we would find an antique traditional Persian rug that was all worn and muted and beautiful but those run around $2500 for an 8′ x 10′ and that doesn’t include the time it takes to find them. So when I stumbled up on this rug I knew it would work.

NOW, listen up, folks. I do not like all over-dyed rugs — no, I don’t. It’s a massive trend right now that is definitely at a backlash point. Don’t go out and buy yourself 10 cheap hot pink or lime green over-dyed rugs. But when they are done right they are really pretty and soft and textural. You get the integrity of a handmade wool traditional rug but in the color that you want. I like it when you just get a hint of the pattern so it looks like a texture rather than a pattern, like this one. And make sure you get a color that you can live with, like this blue, totally beautiful.

When everything is new and bright, the age of the rug becomes the grounding piece in the room that has integrity. Kinda like your cool grandpa that wears leather elbow patches and has worn the same watch for 40 years.

This rug is $1, 046 as an 8′ x 10′ and you can get your paws on it HERE.
