Ikea's Moroccan Inspired Rug

During my self-impsed blogging break I managed to visit Ikea a few times. (I was sprucing up my younger brothers bedroom and relied heavily on the store for several of the storage solutions and small organizational details). While I was there I spotted (what will soon become) my new living room rug. Now if you're a long-time blog reader you'll know that my DREAM rug is an authentic Moroccan berber rug. Oh gosh, they are soooo beautiful & lush...I just love them. They are also expensive (and rightfully so). So when I spotted this rug, the Alvine Rug, I was immediately drawn to it (and slightly confused as to why I hadn't seen it in the new Ikea catalogue). I LOVE the colours - they match perfectly with my colour scheme - and the print is tres Moroccan in feel. I flipped my shoes off, unfolded the rug and felt it undefoot. Pass.





Like I said, I didn't notice this rug in the Canadian Ikea catalogue (not sure if it's in the US version) and it's not online either but I wanted to share it with you all just incase you're looking for a new rug. I can't wait to get it in place - to actually buy it I should say. It'll lighten the space a bit (my current temp rug is dark and makes the space feel heavier) and will bring in some of that ethnic print/feel that I'm eager to inject into the space. Have you noticed this rug at Ikea?

Ohhhh, I like that. I don't know why but I have such a hard time committing to rugs. I can just never decide.
