Remember Rule #1? Dealers can't get high on their own supply. Usually I am pretty good about following this rule, but that changed this weekend as I was photographing an oushak I picked up to sell.
You know how much I love turquoise, and the turquoise in the rug kept staring me in the face. Finally it dawned on me that this rug might be perfect for my entryway.
I wasn't looking for an entryway rug. The one I have is fine. It was my grandmother's, is hand-knotted, good neutral colors, etc.
But I couldn't stop thinking about the turquoise in the oushak. So I decided to bring it home and try it out.
I love what the turquoise and inky blues do against the flagstone.
And overall it has a lighter feel than the original rug.
The turquoise tole chandelier really brings out the turquoise in the rug. The rest of the entryway is pretty neutral and traditional, but I always need that pop.
I think I will keep it for now! What say you?
