Our new rugs

Our vision for our living space here in Seattle was always pretty simple, but from the beginning it came with the notion of a paprika-colored rug.   After a couple of years we finally got around to doing something about it.

That’s actually the second one we bought.  The first, a similar color but larger and with a subtler, darker pattern, is from Pakistan and hangs on our largest wall.
