I have a true love affair with kilim rugs, with kilim anything really. If you’re not familiar, here’s what Wikipedia has to say:
Kilims are flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan. Kilims can be purely decorative or can function as prayer rugs.
There’s a pretty good simple history in that entry too if you’re interested.
Here are some of my favorite rooms featuring this look. Click pics for sources. (Stay tuned for a round-up at the end of the post.)
This one’s super colorful.
With a kilim rug and suzani bedspread you’re halfway there.
