A four poster bed in a Timothy Whealon designed room sits atop a brown and off white striped rug with an interesting drop step pattern. (above)
Uber chic San Francisco friend JO asked me the other day what I thought was “in” in home decor. Huh…it was like a pop quiz. In a moment though, without thought I said “interesting graphic patterns on floors and texture on ceilings”. There. I said it. The “in” thing in my view is adding great interest to your floors and/or texture, color or even pattern to your ceiling. You can leave a room pretty much bare but let the floor do the talking.
Was at a party a few weeks back and I saw a fantastic striped rug at a friend’s house…in a bedroom. I LOVE this rug. The guest room was simple…all white, a great antique twin bed, a lucite chair somewhere or another, a little desk and this great drop step pattern striped rug. This friend is quite posh so I know she chose the more expensive version of this rug…
But in today’s CHEAP TO CHIC, I give you options for a fabulous flat weave wool striped rug at two price points…hard to tell the difference I think…except in price!
Ikea – Stockholm Rand Rug – $179 (5’7″x7’10”. Flat woven wool rug)
Madeline Weinrib – Black Buche – $1750 (Striped wool flat weave carpet. 5’6″x8’6″)(above)

What do you think of this striped rug? Just know…j’adore…but it is okay if you think otherwise.
