Wow! Hand knotted rugs with cut pile often have a light and dark side. This is the result of weavers tying the knot with a downward or sometimes sideways motion while the carpet is strung on the loom. When viewing a carpet in person from eye height, the way your eye perceives the carpet is based on the environment and subject material: When viewing the “lighter side” of a carpet, the wool lays angled away from your eye, and the light is reflected upon the sides of the wool. When viewing from the dark side, the tips of the wool absorb light, and therefore the carpet appears darker. See if this video helps in your decision making process!

It helps me cope with the overwhelming energy all around - so I’m officially gearing up for a bedroom refresh of my own with the much needed help of @natasha_habermann. Here comes more inspiration photos than usual - like this one by @amberinteriors because I mean, it’s so so so good. She always gets the vintage rug placement and selection perfect. If I can achieve even half the amount of cozy and warmth in this picture IRL I will be as calm as a Christmas cucumber (?) ❤️❤️❤️ #regram #amberinteriors #inspiration #oldnewhouse #interiors #interiordesign #bedroom #decorinspo #bedroominspo #dsnicsrug #dscolor // photo by @jess_isaacThe shade of blue and rust in this rug is divine ✨✨ // happy Friday everyone! #oldnewhouse #rugs #vintagerugs #dsnicerug #dscolor #shadesofblue #ihavethisthingwithrugs #ihavethisthingwithfloorsin my book, kitchens don’t get much better than those designed by @studiodearborn - like this one featuring an #oldnewhouse rug - I mean look at that range hood?!!
