Iâve lived on my own in New York City for about four years now and I love the âlived inâ feel of my apartment. I add life to my apartment with a bamboo plant or two, personal photos, an heirloom or two (I use my Fatherâs trunk from college as my coffee table), and scented candles (favorites include Diptique, Fresh and Jo Malone). But, one thing has been missing from my space all along: a graphic print area rug. I canât seem to read a lifestyle or home decor blog or magazine without spotting all sorts of punky patterns and sensational shaped rugs. The more I see them, the more ârug-sessedâ I get!
And Iâm not the only one who is ârug-sessed.â Celebrities who âspruce up their spacesâ with graphic print area rugs include designer Kelly Wearstler (pictured above), Ellen Degeneres, Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, Christina Aguilera, Diane von Furstenberg and more.
The stars aligned and my rug obsession became a rug-reality when the folks over at MedallionRug.com offered to send me one of my own. I will post a pic of that soon!
