Using Kilim Rugs to Add colour to your Space

My style has been pretty consistent throughout time; I’m a classic girl who loves neutrals, but with age a few things have changed. One being with my use of colour; I am really starting to appreciate the use of colour in both design and fashion. This year, I began incorporating it into every space in my home and even my wardrobe, and it has felt really good. I am no longer afraid of throwing it into the mix, I actually embrace it, but I have to admit that I am beyond terrified to add permanent items to the space that fall in the “trendy” category. Permanent to me would be bit pieces of furniture and wall color. I know, you’re probably thinking; wall colour isn’t permanent! But it’s definitely harder to change out than a few throw pillows, so I usually stick to classic neutrals for the permanent items, and add colour in the form of accessories. Which is why I LOVE Kilim rugs.

Don’t you find that traditional Kilim rugs look incredible in neutral spaces, especially when you throw modern pieces into the mix? Kilim rugs are often handmade pieces and are known for their gorgeous colours and interesting geometric patterns. I have gathered together some of my favourites for inspiration because I think my next big purchase should be a rug like this for our bedroom. The room is filled with white furniture, grey and white bedding and window treatments with the only splash of colour being in the form of yellow and navy blue pillows. A carpet like this would really add a good splash of colour and interest to the space.

Where have you spotted gorgeous Kilim rugs and what do you love about them? Would you add them to your home, if so, in which room?
