Turkish textiles are beautiful! Turkish rugs are probably my favorite of all rug styles because they blend classic, exotic and color in such an amazing way – one will instantly brighten and cozy up a room.
when i was 19, my mom and i visited Istanbul, Turkey for a day and it was quiet an experience… my mom bought some rugs and had them shipped back to the states. speaking of, where the heck are those rugs!? i want ’em!
the photo of the room inspired me to find some more approachable Turkish textiles that you and me can bring into our home without having to throw down for a multi thousand dollar rug! Sukan on Etsy has goooorgeous handmade Turkish throw pillows! they run from $44 to around $100 (mostly in the $80 range – but they’re having a sale now!). all you need is one on your couch to bring in that pop of Turkish color and richness! yummm.
