On My Mind : Carpet & Runners

On My Mind : Carpet & Runners - Surprisingly, I get quite a few questions or source requests for the carpet we currently have in our home (pictured above), but I honestly don’t love it, nor can I recommend it. It was honestly kind of tough to find an image of our carpet, because I typically crop it out or shoot strategically because it annoys me. The carpet was here when we moved into our home, and I’m pretty sure it was an afterthought or attempt at selling the home more quickly. After the previous homeowners moved out, they had the entire house painted a warm gray color and installed new carpet throughout (even in the bathroom… remember that?!). It felt and still feels uninspired to me. The carpet isn’t great quality, but it is in good shape, is clean, and is a cool gray color that luckily goes with most palettes. However, it’s not my preferred style and it’s not holding up well to our dogs. We moved in two and a half years ago, and I’m still not impressed with the carpet situation. I’ve been thinking more about the carpet as I’m designing our entryway (think integrated stair runner), and wanted to share my random thoughts on the design topic and material. I have a lot of ideas and design-related things floating around my brain that may or may not ever come to fruition. I thought it could be fun to have casual discussions, bounce ideas, and share them in a new “On My Mind” series. If something pops up that seems interesting or relevant to chat about, I’ll use this tag / title to post about it. Sound good? Click through for a casual discussion on carpet and what that might look like in our home someday! Continue Reading
