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.
This next image was reportedly from a room designed by David Hicks in 1975. It amazes me that this room doesn’t feel dated to me.
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?
