kilim in the kitchen!

My Kilim rug arrived from Turkey yesterday and I couldn't be more enamoured with it! Well, I admit I do wish it was just a little bit longer, but all in all it is just so beautiful and makes my kitchen (its new home) finally feel like an actual ROOM. Gah! So pleased!

I can see how to "complete" the room now, whereas before it arrived I was having a really hard time picturing how I could save it from boring-town. My Kilim has officially ridden in on a white horse. It's dashing as shit.

For those of you who don't know, Kilims are defined on Wiki as "flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan". I just define them as gorgeous, especially when they're used as a pop of unexpected colour in the kitchen.

I'll take a photo as soon as I get a moment in my apartment in natural light, but for now, here's a little Kilim inspiration!

I honestly think I might be drooling. This is embarrassing.
