mind games

do you ever see something that you want so bad that you will not rest till you get it? 

Yea, that's been me for the last 48 hours.  I want a new rug for my kitchen, and I want it to look like these little gems





 I'm drooling over all of these amazing antique/kilim/Persian/ AMAZING rugs. 

and I will not rest till I get my hands on one. 

Any suggestions pullleaseeeee.  I'll take anything to keep myself from going over the edge.  kthanks, much appreciation.

I saw the most amazing antique rug (well, I assume it was antique) in the window of Landry & Acari this weekend. I literally stood in front of the window and stared. So I feel your pain!

See if you have a local shop that repairs rugs like these.
Very often they have some that never get picked up or owners want to sell. I love the look!
There are a few on-line rug shops too.

go to antiques and interiors on dunlavy - they have great runners like this and i'm sure they would love to make a sale today!

and yes, i feel your pain. i'm the same exact way about things and so is my daughter- she is really worse about it than me!

Go to Design Manifest's blog...she blogged about sources for these rugs a few months ago. I think she even recommended some eBay sellers. Happy shopping.

Perhaps try brimfield in a few weeks?

I'll be there on the 9th for the blogger meet up if you need kilim hunting moral support :)

My husband bought me an antique persian rug for my birthday. We just moved into a new home and I put it in my kitchen. ** I blogged about it today FYI! :)

Oh, and he ordered it from esale Rugs. I highly recommend them!! :)

ikea. i was eyeing a persian rug going for about $80. while it won't have the same history as an antique, you won't care as much if something is spilled on it. i'm also not sure you could beat the price. hope this helps!

I know exactly how you feel, I have these moments ALOT lol
I can't sleep or focus when that happens.
These candy kilims are great, what's the budget?

Brimfield for sure. I've seen them there. If you need someone to help you find them there call Tracy (www.waterandmain.com). She has a few in her homes and knows where to go at Brimfield.

Right there with ya. Totally obsessed with a Persian in my kitchen, bath, anywhere but the "standard" place. My in-laws have them everywhere - perfect sizes and colors, and I can't tell you how tough it was not to roll one up and run out the door with it! ;)
