floor decoration

When I’m browsing interiors blogs and homewares magazines, the one thing I always look out for is what’s been done to the floor. As renters, we’ve always been stuck with whatever awful carpet the landlord has provided (I dream of the day we can actually have bare floorboards, possibly even whitewashed…), so I’m a big fan of covering as much of it up as I can with a good rug.

There are heaps and heaps of good places to buy rugs from; IKEA sell great graphic ones, and Urban Outfitters have got a huge range of lovely eclectic styles, but my favourites came from somewhere I never expected – Lotta from Stockholm.
Famous for their fabulous range of incredible clogs (have you seen the aubergine T-bars? Amazing!), Lotta also stock a range of Pappelina rugs, full of geometric shapes, pastels and bright colours. There’s even an Aztec-esque pattern in there – look!

I’m particularly taken with the bottom left style, ‘Klas Red’ – I think it would look amazing in our teeny tiny hallway. Every rug is available in a range of sizes and prices, so no matter what size or shape your room, there’s something for everyone. See the full range here – and then go and have a look at the clogs. And bags. And, err, jewellery. Ahem.
