A Striped Obsession

Normally, I am really interested into a trend, will buy into it in some affordable way or another (like a pillow), and then my obsession is over. However, this particular item I just simply can't get over...
Many of you are probably long past it, but something about this rug speaks to me. I am convinced it works in every single room, and is something you can hang onto for a long time. Or possibly the fact that its affordable is so appealing ($279 at Ikea!).  The first time I saw the similar one in Nate Berkus' living room, I knew I had to have one someday...


it grounds neutrals...

and is stunning with color...

These rooms look very chic and cool, but I don't know if I could live with these kinds of floors!
