I also love beautiful things. In my humble opinion, Amy Butler makes beautiful things. She has now come out with a range of rugs (which I found out about via this talented maker of beautiful things). My two loves brought together Amy Butler style.
I covet these rugs. Big time. Perhaps I could convince the Big Fella to invest in floorboards throughout the house and then invest in a couple of new rugs. Sounds perfectly economical to me.
I can hear him now..."ah, let me think about it - no".
