design inspiration: striped rugs

I've been totally digging striped rugs lately. How can I not when I see them in great interiors like these?

Matt Albiani's Foyer in the Domino Mag house tour.


This romantic pink and red bedroom.


Amanda Peet's living room. Check out all those fabulous stripes!

So that's why I ordered this a couple nights ago...

I love the stripes. And all the red too!

I love stripes, too! And I was just looking at that rug you bought the other night. I cannot believe what a bargain it is right now. I'm trying to figure out where I'd put it...ahh!

Ahhh stripes - I love 'em. I have had a thing for striped dinnerware lately. Stripes remind me of warm weather, maybe that's why we crave them so much?

Megan - glad you agree! (and I didn't even realize all the red I was posting... but I do like that too!)

Mary - it's such a steal! we got the 8x10... a 9x12 would have been better, but we can make it work. Maybe i'll remember to take a picture or two to show you.

Dionne - I think you're on to something! I never thought of stripes as being summery, but they totally are! And yes, I have such a strong case of spring-fever, that I was giddy when I heard birds chirping outside this morning.

Can't wait to see it! I loved that spread on amanda peet's place--so fun and put together at the same time. And speaking of grain sacks, did you notice the cool red stripe on the chair in the foreground of her living room? what a great detail!
