Fantasy House Friday [The Rug Company]

When I saw this rug, it made me go weak at the knees. I know. Just like the boy (or girl) you had a massive crush on at high school, only now that I'm happily married with two children, it's rugs and other beautiful homewares, that have this effect on me.

As sad as I am that it's well and truly out of my budget in this lifetime, it's still made me happy to to have come across it, and at least I can pop it in the Fantasy House, right? Come on, humour me here...

Designed by the perpetually amazing Vivienne Westwood, the Thistle rug is a nod to her affinity with Scotland, featuring an abstract representation of the milk thistle.

Hand knotted from Tibetan wool and silk (obvs!), it's available in this to-die-for pale rose and gold, or dove grey and pewter. I'd happily accept either.

It's been a while since I lost myself in The Rug Company website, so excuse me while I go and do just that, and admire not only the stunning rugs, but the always fabulous styling.

Fantasy House Friday!

A while ago (and when I say 'a while' I actually mean over a year ago!) I started a Fantasy House Friday hashtag on Instagram for all the 'slightly' out of reach, dreamy home products that I love, but well, can't have!

I had always meant to move it to the blog, so it would be better documented, but it went a little by the wayside. Well, I'm happy to announce that it's back and it's now right here on the blog. You can expect a new pick each Friday, starting today! Whoop!

I'm going to start this first post off with my favourite past picks, plus today's entry. Bear in mind that these are picks from up to a year or so ago, and some won't be available any more even if you do happen to have the cash. I still don't own any of them, damn it! Remember, it's all in the name of fun, so join me each Friday for some interiors dreaming. Let's go!

And today's pick, because I have rugs on my mind (not unusual!) is this stunning District bamboo silk rug by Kelly Wearstler for The Rug Company. One day I will own a Rug Company rug, which is basically floor art. Or two. But for now, let's dream...
