~my love affair with Turkish rugs~

I've always loved the look of Turkish rugs, but never owned one. I would always see them on Pinterest in gorgeous homes, and always dreamed of finding one someday.

A few months ago I actually found one in an antique store for a very reasonable price
 and scooped it up.
I love the colors in it and I loved it so much, that I started searching everywhere for more.
Originally I had this in front of the kitchen sink, but when we had our new floors installed I realized I needed a rug inside the french doors, so I moved it here.
This post will show you a glimpse into our new flooring which I love by the way!



So, I started searching local shops for rugs but never found any just right.
So my search turned to online, and that is where I found OldVinShop on etsy.
I was a little nervous about ordering something I hadn't seen in person, but I went ahead and ordered this one for our bedroom.
When we got new carpet for this room, the old rug we had didn't match, and I wanted to get something with grey in it.
This one is perfect.


And then I ordered this runner for our bathroom.
I am obsessed with the colors in this one!
I also love using a runner in here instead of two small bath mats.



Since I had moved our kitchen rug to the living room, I was in need of a new one here.
I was so happy with my other rugs, that I went back to the same shop and ordered this one.
The colors are muted, faded, and work perfectly in here.



And, then, yet another.
Why not, I'm hooked.
I seriously have been checking their shop several times a week to see what new rugs they list.
I don't really have a home for this one yet, but for now, it's here, and the dogs love laying on it.



If you are looking for a good quality vintage Turkish rug at a great price point, I'd highly recommend this etsy seller.
Here's a few more of my favorites from their shop:

This gorgeous faded rug:


This runner would be great in a kitchen!


I can picture this one in a bathroom, but it would also make a great entry rug:


And check out the colors on this neutral one!


And for even more inspiration, check out these beautiful rooms with gorgeous vintage rugs.
Are you as obsessed as I am?












I hope you are having a great day!
xoxo

I love the look of these rugs but wonder do you clean them before using in your home?
How? The idea of bringing other people's used rugs into my household kind of skeeves
me out. Does the seller clean them before putting them up for sale? This is what
stops me from buying! Marie

Love these rugs and thanks for the link. I just ordered one from Susan and I now can't wait to receive it! Not sure, if you answered this one..how fast was her shipping? xo, Diane

Love these rugs and this shop. I was eyeing the one you have in your kitchen, after seeing that it sold before I could snag it, kicking myself for not getting it. So funny that I would end up finding it on your blog. Looks beautiful!
