My dream rug would be a well worn faded antique persian in red tones but sadly I do not have the budget for such things and the cheap ones are hideous.
Living room has wooden floors, dark wood furniture, walls painted in a very dark teal as per picture below, copper light fittings/lamps, fairy lights, lots of plants, vintage framed film art on walls, a kind of bohemian vibe done on the cheap.
I think a black/white chevron rug would look quite cool/striking and don't massively care if it is considered naff now but just wondered if anyone had any other suggestions?
Budget up to £100 but would prefer lower. Needs to be a decent size to go under coffee table.
Aww thank you everyone. This is the first home I've owned and the first house I've lived in with the DC as a single parent. I've been putting in quite a bit of effort into making it look nice (on a beer budget) and it's lovely to hear such nice comments. Feeling all fuzzy now .
Rosy you never know, I'd recommend eBay as well if you filter by 'Collection Only' and within 10 miles of your address. I saw a few on there but they ended up going for £50+ (which is still a bargain).
Haha Winner I hope you're not in W. Yorks or we could well end up brawling over a sugar pot in a Sue Ryder 😂😂.
I actually got the cabinet in a charity shop a few years ago. I think it was £110 but I haggled and got it for £90. It's antique walnut and lined in a sage green velvet. It's so gorgeous. I actually have an original Victorian fireplace that I won on eBay that is eventually going to take its place but it's going to be a helluva long time before I can afford to have the chimney breast wall knocked out and the fireplace fitted.
Phew, I'm the other end of the country so my charity finds are safe from your beedy eyes
When you get your fireplace fitted send the cabinet my way.
Enjoy making your home your own. Looks like you are doing a beautiful job. We are almost at the end of a long stretch of living in rented houses. Can't wait to have a place of my own to put my stamp on
