A room without a rug is like a dog without a bone, peanut butter without jelly, a queen without her crown. The right rug can anchor a room, tie it together, and make it feel layered and whole. And while there are plenty of great rug options out there, a quality vintage bohemian rug can really work wonders in your space.
Whether you want to soften and lighten a room with a Moroccan Beni Ourain rug or give your space a muted hardwearing base with a Turkish Oushak rug, bohemian rugs have the imperfect nature that will not only make your room feel lived-in and authentic, it will also easily hide imperfections—making it the perfect pet and kid-friendly solution.
