Walk on the wild side

I really like this rug.




Remember I mentioned that I needed to get a new rug for my desk area here




How do we all feel about this look



Yes?
No?
Maybe so?

I love a rug with an all over pattern and a little on the "wild side" is fun. I love to see what you end up with!
Love the new look here.

I think it is super fun! I used to have a leopard print reading rug in my classroom when I used to teach. I loved it.

Design Esquire said...

Yes! Love it. Just what you need to jazz up the area.

Rachel said...

If you like leopard print - then yes. It is SOOOOOO forgiving as a rug.

I have a leopard print runner in our hallway. It's been down almost a year now, and still looks good. You can see it here:

Rachel said...

By the way - I love the orange geometric background!

Abbie said...

It would be fabulous. Go for it! BTW... I know someone that's going for the full carpet look, and I'm so jealous.

Jennifer said...

I say YES. that pattern has got to be great for high-traffic. and it looks great with orange!

Starfish and Sundresses said...

I a little animal print! I think it looks great, go for it!

Jaime said...

Yes! That'd be perfect :)

Emily said...

I am a fan! looks great next to the orange on the bins too! It makes a statement but isn't overwhelming.

Love the new look you have here too!

Southern Aspirations said...

oh SO much fun!! Go for it!

Susie @ Maddie's Nest said...

I think it is great. I met with a rep from Stark Carpet last week and they had an antelope print I want (although it is probably not in my budget at the moment). I say go for it.

I really like the carpet with the white, but the orange bins are throwing me off a bit.

Only because I know you can handle it, I vote no:) Get that black and white chevron rug everyone has been blogging about from west elm. I like that better.

Steph- you are too funny!! You actually just reminded me that I have a black and white striped rug that can hold me over till I can make a decision.
