Home decor ideas with Kilims

2 comments , , Share It:
I love kilims. I think they can be great conversation starters. View my previous post about kilim rugs hereRead about my five pins from Pinterest featuring gorgeous ways to create eye catching focal points with kilims

A colorful kilim in an otherwise monochrome setting has added character and brightness to the room. Neutral colors tend to make the room look bigger, a bright rug will create a focal point and divert the attention away from the size of the room. I love the way this bright kilim has been matched up with other rustic pieces of furniture. 

A mix of kilims in various colors and designs can add a touch of country style living to your  room. Works especially well for seasonal transitions from winter to spring and summer to fall. Eye catching pieces of wooden furniture, wicker baskets and green foliage have worked wonders in this setting. 

This gorgeous peek -a- boo bench can be a versatile piece of furniture. A mix of modern and traditional, use it in the balcony, or under a bay window. 

Use traditional kilims as upholstery for dining chairs, ottomans and arm chairs. It is best to stick with subtle colors for upholstery to avoid a build up and clash of too many colors. Geometric designs are a big trend for 2013, use kilims in geometric weaves for a mix of  artisanal and contemporary.  

Finally, I absolutely love the idea of converting a kilim into a piece of luggage - sturdy and stylish!
