Turkish kilims — the highly patterned, brightly colored, flatwoven rugs — are nothing new, but just recently they’ve started cropping up in homes all over. Spotted on Design Manifest. Above: many kilims are brightly colored, but you can also buy older, more faded ones if you prefer soft, desatured colors. A kilim rug in a bright Scandinavian-style space = perfect. These slightly more somber hues are a good fit for the bedroom in Katie’s Hillside Bungalow. Their colorful style makes them a beautiful complement to more minimal, modern furnishings, and they’re a great way to bring a little texture into a room. A turkish kilim in a dining room from Style Me Pretty. It’s a Turkish kilim, purchased from Ebay. The pattern here is a bit more subtle, but the effect is no less dramatic. That rug and those old, weathered cabinets — texture loves texture. This rug really ties the room together. Here are some of our favorite examples of spaces with kilim rugs.
