Lay Me Down | Rug Inspiration

We are almost to our final phase of our kitchen... but one of my last design pieces I cannot seem to put my finger on the exact one to purchase.  A kitchen rug.  So simple you'd think. 

But honestly, I'm going with something that is not our "typical" style and pushing ourselves out of our boundaries.  I have been crushing hard over the Turkish Kilim Rug trend that's happening and cannot get enough of the impact they can make in a kitchen.

My inspiration:



To name a few.  Seriously though. Aren't those kitchens to die for!  I've been searching high and low for a good two months now and haven't found "the one".  They're either too big, too expensive, too thin, or most often just not the right design.  BTW that last one is exactly what I'm looking for.

I did share a good sneak peek on my Instagram (@pbjstories) the other week of my newly finished floating shelves.  I have a few more things to do in the surrounding space (like finish the crown molding, install under cabinet lighting).  But once I do I'll for sure be doing my how-to on these beauties.

I know. It's been a VERY long process for the home renovation and I haven't been diligent about home updates or tutorials.  I swear, we're coming to a stopping point in between major projects so I'll more time to share all the goodness!

What do you think of the Turkish Kilim rug trend? Are you in or out?



  1. Well I am looking for the same thing so when you find one, please share! It's coming together, remember it's take a while to pull a room together and finish it. I have to tell myself this all the time and let's be real, we are never really finished with a room. lol.

  2. World Market (worldmarket.com) usually has a good selection of those Kilim rugs. I haven't seen them in person so I can't speak to thickness though.

    Love the shelves and can't wait to see more!


Love hearing back from my readers, you make my day! Thanks, Pamela of PBJstories
