Kilim and Patterns and Over Dyes, Oh My!

I'm starting to see this trend of bright colors, geometric patterns and over dyes everywhere and I can't get enough. I've purchased a rug and two pillows over the past week and I'm already scouting out what else I can add. While the colors may seem feminine on some, the geometric patterns and textures are enough to get the hubs on board with this trend.
I'll admit I was seeing the word 'Kilim' everywhere but wasn't even sure what it meant. So I checked out Wiki (one fact about me, I Google everything). Kilims are flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan, but these patterns and over dyes are popping up on more places than the floor. This Kilim trend goes hand in hand with the Moroccan and Aztec prints everyone seems to be sporting these days. I've selected a few of my personal favorites that I'm eyeing up.
What are some of your favorite Kilim pieces?


  1. Hi, I am your newest follower. You have a beautiful blog with lots of inspiring DIYs. I love kilim rugs, especially if they have little pops of pink and yellow in them. Yels x

    1. Thank you for reading!! I'm anxiously waiting for my kilim rug to arrive. Any day now...

  2. Whoa they are too gorgeous. I think I prefer furniture printed like this... a large couch in this print would be soooo awesome.
