I can see how to "complete" the room now, whereas before it arrived I was having a really hard time picturing how I could save it from boring-town. My Kilim has officially ridden in on a white horse. It's dashing as shit.
For those of you who don't know, Kilims are defined on Wiki as "flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan". I just define them as gorgeous, especially when they're used as a pop of unexpected colour in the kitchen.
I'll take a photo as soon as I get a moment in my apartment in natural light, but for now, here's a little Kilim inspiration!
