Antelope Obsession

The March 2012 issue of Better Homes and Gardens has reaffirmed my love for Stark's Antelope carpet.  Designer Katie Rosenfeld uses Antelope in her warm and comfortable family room. 

Antelope is a classic pattern that functions as a very stylish neutral. It is one of Stark's all-time best sellers (along with the classic diamond sisal, of course). Some people might think that an animal print is very style-specific and room-specific, but it really can work in nearly any room and with nearly any style.  Katie's room (above), is a good example of how Antelope can be used in a casual space.

Antelope works so beautifully in these spaces.

Antelope is so chic and versatile- it is the perfect rug to use when an oriental feels too traditional, but a geometric pattern feels too modern.  I have a cheetah rug in my dining room (I wish it was Stark Antelope- one day....)  Would you use it in your home?

Love the Stark antelope rug! I have one in my guest bedroom. It's super durable, versatile and not to mention soft.

Off to buy a lottery ticket-- it would be perfect in our family room.

Hi ladies!! I was just working up a post this week on antelope. I ordered an awesome Stark antelope rug for mere clams on OKL and it was sooo digitized and pixelated when it arrived, I couldn't keep it. I almost shed a tear too :/ We're crazy for rugs, us girls!

Anywho - I tagged you all in today's post. Totally understand if you roll your eyes at the content, BUT, on the off chance you wanna play along, I would LOVE to get to know you better :)
