Old New House: Rug Envy

I am still on the hunt for a pretty, cheery, washable rug for the laundry room.  Between my life-long struggle with allergies, and now Szuka, I've always been a bit resistant to rugs, although I do admire their beauty.  Actually shopping for a rug has me appreciating the selection from Old New House even more.  How I wish that I could toss one of these beauties into the laundry room to add some vibrancy (hopefully these curtains will do the trick!) . . .

This antique Tekke rug has an unusual pattern and a warm, inviting colour palette.  

This vintage Turkish rug has a glimmer of turquoise that caught my eye and made me pine for it:

This primitive antique braided rug would lend a homespun vibe to any space:

This antique Beshir runner has a striking pattern and rich colours:

This blanched Turkish runner is a refreshing antithesis to the on-trend over-dyed rugs:

If you're in the market for something more elegant than the washable version I'm after, take a peek at Old New House and their ever-changing inventory of antique and vintage rugs.  And, if you missed it, click here for my interview with Melissa and Dave about shopping and caring for antique rugs.
