New Turkish rugs and a Christmas sneak peek...

Quite honestly, I am just a little obsessed with Turkish rugs and kilim pillow covers. But then, you all know that. So when I got the email from Unique Rug Store and Kilim Pillow Store about sponsorship, I jumped all over the opportunity. 

Pin It

Of course, the hard part was choosing. Really, with my lack of a budget, this was a once in a lifetime chance to get an authentic overdyed or kilim rug of my choice, so I wanted to make the right decision. It was excruciating. I just could not decide. 



 There are so many amazing rugs, from kilims and overdyed rugs to patchwork and cowhide rugs.



I almost got a 9 x 11 hot pink overdyed rug, but after changing my mind at least four times, they gave me the option of two smaller rugs, so I chose this fuchsia 6 x 9 vintage rug as well as a neutral cream rug I'll share later, and two kilim pillow covers.


This was definitely the perfect choice. It is gorgeous, seriously gorgeous. There are enough color variations that I can used pinks, reds and plums with this rug and enjoy some versatility for a while. It really is exquisite, and you can definitely tell the difference between this one and the pink machine-made rugs I had before. 


At 6'4" x 9'6" it really is a generous size and large enough to fit the furniture arrangement I have, but I left the jute 8 x 12 underneath for a little extra width, which works nicely and gives it some padding. I have my rugpadusa pad underneath, and you definitely need a good rug pad for this style rug. 


The rugs and two kilim pillow covers were shipped UPS and arrived in just a few days--much faster than anything I have shipped stateside, and the rep I dealt with just couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. I just wish I had found Unique Rug Store and Kilim Pillow Store two months ago. I like dealing directly with vendors because there are better deals to be had, so I highly recommend shopping both these stores for gorgeous rugs, pillow covers and a good deal. 

They still have some cyber Monday deals going on, so check out the site for yourself and see what I'm gushing about:-) 


I'll share the other rug I got and pillow covers later this week. In the meantime, here is another little sneak peek of the Christmas decor I am still working on:-)


Thanks for stopping by!

  6. If I were boho in any form I would most definitely be taking notes from you.
    I have often thought of adding a wow factor of colour to my home, that one dramatic piece in my sitting living room. Your brave choice with the new area rug really anchors and wows its space. Love your style.

    Looking forward to more through the holidays here.

    Have a blessed December.
