Sisal

I bought a new rug for the living room and I'm absolutely loving it, it's made from sisal and I've wanted one for a very long time. It's a greenish shade and I think it really brightens the room. Sisal is a natural fibber very durable and found in many "exotic" (for me) countries. I think it looks classic and yet has a modern touch to it, a certain edge. Plus it works great in almost any space, don't you think?

  1. I love the last picture. I want to live there, sit on that sofa drink green tea and read my magazines.

    Have a nice Tuesday darling. My hayfever is driving me mad, it's too early for it to start no? x

  2. I am a big sisal fan. I love how neutral it is and also it keeps my cat from picking the furniture. He picks the rug instead. :)

  11. Me encanta pisar sobre el sisal. Tan fresco en verano y cálido en invierno, si además le colocas una alfombra encima ya.... te mueres.

    Aquí en el Levante hemos empezado hoy la semana laboral, a medio gas. Los niños están de vacaciones escolares, y yo tengo a mi princesa estos días a tiempo completo.

    Pero ya echaba de menos darme un paseíto por tu casa :)

    Besos guapa!

  18. They're all fabulous. I need a new rug...doing my living room over (in my mind, at least) and I've been contemplating rug options. I'm going to look into sisal. Thx for the idea, love :)

  19. I've been looking at sisal rugs for our new condo. Sadly, it does not have the wood floors I've been lusting after so we'll be needing a big one to protect the carpet!

  22. I've always wanted a white couch... but with a sporty husband and an indoor dog, I'm afraid that dream will never be realised! Nevertheless, I have a cream Louis XIV armchair that neither one is allowed to touch - hehe x
