The Perfect Rug

On my quest to bring a little boho into my Shabby Chic life my next family room is in serious need of the perfect rug.  Something a little tattered, worn, and lived in is just what I'm looking for. I find it crazy that every time I come across one that fits my needs it is over the moon expensive. This just may be one of my first big DIY's once I'm settled in my new place.

This rug from West Elm just may be a contender because of the doable price tag.
Every time I see this rug I fall a little more in love.  Its from Amanda Peet's home in Vogue.

I've been seeing a lot of Peruvian inspired rugs floating around.  This one is from Anthropologie.

I have those white walls, I have that couch, I just may need that rug. (Dreambookdesign.com)
I'll take all three. (theapartment.dk.)

I've become absolutley smitten with these overdyed rugs that have been all over pinterest. (pinkpeppers)
Anthropologie has this green version for only a fortune.
Loomrugs.com.au had me entertained for hours.  Too bad they are so far away :(
Of course ABC Carpet and Home is going to have an abundance of them for an abundance of my pay check.      

My mind is really going now.....What do you think? Is distressing and dying a rug too big of a DIY?


  1. Its definitely possible to DIY a rug yourself! I've seen a few DIY bloggers tackle it and come out with surprisingly sometimes great results. Rugs USA is middle of the road expensive but they have AMAAAAAZING rugs. This is my fave: http://www.rugsusa.com/rugsusa/rugs/rugs-usa-moroccan-shag/ivory/200MTVS28A-406.html

    Good luck in your search and Have a super duper fabulous weekend, doll!

  5. I'm also on the hunt for a new rug. I need one that is comfortable for my dorm room at school but so far I've had no luck. It doesn't help that I have a horribly unfashionable and untidy room mate. Sigh!
