{Styleboard} for Chairish

I have a love for vintage persian rugs, but due to their hefty price tag, I haven't been the proud owner of one yet. Recently, I came across a site called Chairish that sells pre-owned vintage rugs that are reasonably priced. I was asked to create a style board around one of their vintage rugs. I was given a few rugs to choose from and was asked to take the room from white to bright! Fun, right!?!

 Have you heard of Chairish? It's a San Francisco based online shop where you can buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another. They are known for their unique decor and accessories from all eras and styles. Think original mid-century pieces from Herman-Miller, Knoll, and Hermes! Many pieces listed are designer, antique or high-end modern and vintage pieces, but they also love non-branded items with great character.

Here are some of the rug options I could pick from to design around:

Turquoise Overdyed Turkish Rug
Hand Woven Rug
Issac Mizrahi Geometric Rug

Grass Green Abrash Turkish Rug

I chose to design around this Turquoise Overdyed Turkish Patchwork rug and decided I would design a living space.

This rug definitely takes a space from white to bright on its own! You can check out many of their other stylish rugs here

The next piece of furniture I chose was a couch. Which was easy for me because I've had my eye on this leather beauty for a really, really, really long time and since it's not in the budget in real life, a girl can dream, right?!   It's a big sofa at 108" and perfect for growing boys a comfy, modern living room. 

I wanted this room to be a mix of high and low pieces. The sofa and rug being the high (expensive) pieces and then mixed in low (less expensive) pieces.

Next was choosing artwork and I knew the perfect piece to add an industrial vibe.

Here is what I came up with:

A room can feel "bright" without adding a ton of color but by the mixing of textures, fabrics, mixed metals and splashes of colors.
