White Walls with Antique Rugs

Sunday, November 11, 2012

It's my latest obsession.  Crisp white walls combined with intricately patterned old rugs.  Does the mix get any better than this?  I think not.




The timeworn, faded quality of the antique rug takes just enough edge off, don't you think?



Antique rugs also look superb in white kitchens, adding some warmth to all the slick surfaces.




Even in a bathroom, an old Persian rug adds warmth and texture (although I don't know how practical it is placed so closely to the tub.)

I'm with you on this one. Simple, classic white walls always show off the best aspects of an antique rug. LOVE the first image!

We will need to fight for who is President of that club. I love all of this. The world may be going color crazy...but I think I am headed to no-color.

With the exception of 3 years, I have always had white walls. I just love them. So clean and crisp, and these rugs are fabulous!!
These rooms are being pinned!
Happy Monday.

Those rugs in kitchen and bathrooms are exactly what all the cold, hard surfaces call for.

Big fan! I love the first room.
My FIL left one at my SIL's house. She's not using it and I have the first dibs. It is huge - 9x12 persian rug. Now I just have to figure out shipping from NJ to WI.
