Rug Shopping, Forever

Between the island, the clock, the trashcans and the rug, there is a lot of IKEA going on in this kitchen. And there isn’t a lot of color. I’m cool with both of those things, to a point, but the kitchen feels a bit sterile. The neon sign helped add some character. Now it needs an awesome rug.

I had hoped this rug would be The One. It’s the Dunham Kilim Recycled Yarn Indoor/Outdoor Rug from Pottery Barn.

But the orange was much stronger in person than it appeared on the website, and that orange really brought out the orange in our oak kitchen cabinets.

Looking at these pictures I actually like it but in person it was definitely a non-starter.

So the search continues. Probably forever. Forever? Forever ever.
