I have a love affair with striped rugs. Just look at all the rooms below! See how versatile they are? Preppy, cheerful, crisp, playful, chic STRIPES. I can envision every room in my apartment with a striped rug and I think that's a dangerous thing. Can you imagine? I'd have to fight off comparisons to the fruit striped gum mascot.
This first photo is my absolute favorite. I'm thinking about going for a re-creation here.
