Patchwork rugs are everywhere I look!








From the pages of House Beautiful in March with the rooms decorated by Albert Hadley- from my trip to Paris last fall- The Rugby Ralph Lauren store in New York on University Place-The RL mansion- Shabby Chic (which I just learned is closing)- STARK carpet showroom in the D&D in NYC- and even on ebay!

Tattered- cut up rugs- of all sizes and colors and mix matched and sewn together to make a whole new look.
I like how this is recycled-eco friendly designing...

(Sorry things have been slow for my posting lately- I hosted an event with a wonderful client at my office for Meals on Wheels on Thursday night for 50 people- and cooked everything and was running all over the place trying to pull it together!)

I think they look great, I saw some very similar last time I was in Turkey, beautiful and kind of ethical at the same time.....

Oh I love this idea too! I lost a few rugs in storage recently to moth damage. Some areas are still good and others beyond repair. What a great way to salvage them.
