Overdyed Rugs - An "Old" Trend that I Still LOVE

Some people get so bent out of shape over trends in design. I cannot count how many times I've read about chevron being "played out" - there is a reason you still see it everywhere - it is a classic pattern and it's here to stay (Chevron for Life!).

Another trend that I expect will continue to stick around is over-dyed rugs. I've used them in two projects in the past year - one dining room, one living room. And I'm currently coveting one for our own living room.

This is one of my favorite images & has been for quite some time. And is also the reason I want one for myself!

The room has my favorite color scheme as well (and was the colors we used for our wedding in May 2009) - navy and deep pink. 

You can find (usually) smaller sized rugs at an affordable price through websites like Chairish and even Etsy and Ebay.

For the dining room design, I needed a large rug and also one that we didn't have to worry about getting dirty. We went with a reproduction from Overstock and it really looks incredible - more pictures to come, once the new table and chairs are in. And window treatments, wallpaper, storage. 


So, trend away! Your floors will thank you.
