As some of you might know, I love to design interiors and have gotten more of a chance to exercise my passion in recent years as we have bought and sold homes. My husband is in real estate, so instead of putting extra savings in stocks and bonds, we have invested in real estate. If you follow me on instagram, you might be familiar with the fun and retro interiors of our Palm Desert home, which was a blast decorating because you can go all out with the desert! I am also a lover of color, patterns, textures. and layering, so this was a perfect project for me.
As of late, we have decided to invest back in Downtown Los Angeles, a market that is booming with growth right now, by purchasing a loft. I work out of LA a lot and we currently live about 45 minutes away on the coast, so knowing we wanted to invest in LA somewhere, this was the perfect location. However, my hubby begged me to please not splatter the apartment with color and vintage eclectic decor, which is definitely my "signature" look if I have one. Instead he said he would love a serene and masculine place thats super modern. Challenge accepted. I have been scouring my top spots for everything from furniture to rugs to lighting and today was all about the rugs. This of course inspired todays post. I can't spend a ton on each item, so tried to keep my hunt for a 9x12 rug under $1000 which is hard to do! Rugs are costly and big rugs like this can run in the thousands and even tens of thousands! I don't have the money for that, so I rounded up my favorite rugs for a modern space that fall right under the $1200 mark, with many well under that! For rugs, I love One Kings Lane for the diversity in brands that they carry and huge selection as well as CB2 for their modern and current taste.
I'd love to know which rugs you love most!
