Patterned Carpet….

In addition to my obsession with design magazines, I do try to read the Wall Street Journal regularly to keep up on what is going on in the financial world (my background is private equity and I am a CPA…..)  Can I help it that my favorite section is often the section on Design?!?

Recently, there was an article on patterned carpets and how even small spaces would benefit from a little glam on the floor.

Charlotte Moss has come out with a collection of carpets for Stark Carpet.  I am dying over this ikat.  I would probably never be so bold to use it myself, but how fabulous would this be in an intimate library with lacquered walls?

It is no secret that I am a lover of all things pink, wish I had a place for this beauty from HB Home Design.

In my own home, I am just starting to work on my decorating.  We are meeting with two architects this week to start thinking about our remodel.  Doing much before that wouldn’t be wise, but I am working on the kids’ rooms and I am about to order this one from Stark.  I am doing a custom carpet leaving 6 inches of wood showing around the perimeter.   I think this is a carpet that will grow with Harry as he moves from nursery phase into a more “manly” design.

What about you, do you like patterned carpets?  Are you currently using them in your home or designs?
