I hope all our State of Green readers had a great weekend. The sun was shining here in Melbourne, and put me in the mood for a fresh room makeover for my daughter. After occupying a room with her two brothers for the first 3 1/2 years of her life (see former makeover here), it was time to turn my storage / junk room into a cute girls bedroom.
Once I removed all the bits and pieces stored in the room and vacuumed away a tonne of dust, the room looked twice as big as it used to. I re-assembled my daughters bedroom furniture and put it in place, but it was still missing that certain “je ne said quoi“. Now this is where it is handy (and a little dangerous) to have the State of Green store at my fingertips – I flapped out two of the rag rags we recently got in from Morocco and Voila – It added the required pizazz.
It is quite amazing to think these rugs used to be pieces of clothing, cloth and various other textiles. Thousands of tiny pieces of recycled cloth are neatly knotted in place to form various bright patterns, that are not only hard wearing but are absolutely striking.
Now I have just one issue – I LOVE both of the rag rugs above, and need your help to decide which looks best. I am leaning towards the geometric design in the bottom image. How about you? Leave a comment below and let me know!
