Cut a Rug

Do you have a plain, old, boring floor with a flat, single-color carpet, hard wood or tile? Here are some rugs that will liven up your space... or at least have your guests shaking there heads.

 If you guests need some extra entertainment, perhaps they can follow the maze in your carpet!

Sign me up for one of these moss carpets when they go on sale! The concept is pretty interesting. The mats are made from a special foam that is well-suited for moss to grow and the humidity of the bathroom is enough for these three types to live. There you have it... a live bath mat!

Perhaps these tire track rugs might be best in a man cave, game room or garage, but they will certainly have your friends taking a second look at your floor.

And something a bit more girly than tire tracks. This awesome, giant rug is knitted by hand!

I think these are my favorite of the bunch! They are made from upcycled leather belts which are mounted together and cut into tiles or an area rug. I might have to raid the local thrift shops for some belts to see if I can recreate one of these. The round leather rug goes for $688 at Branch, so it would be great if I can figure out how to recreate it on a budget.

It's All in the Details

I love the inside of this Christian Dior wedding gown! Such an unexpected way to add your "something blue".
