RUG of the DAY!

A Beautiful ANTIQUE DOG RUG
Love this  RUG !Hooked with limited colour palette of old clothing ,I imagine . . . .
These days .with all the dyed wool around ,we have  so much to choose from that  we over complicate  it  colour wise . . . . .great border example here also!

  1. I agree with you on color...makes me think of different a photograph is in B/W than color. When I studied French tapestry, we were taught to make our first design using only black, white and shades of grey, so we could understand our design more clearly (not so easily seen to some when colors are introduced). Where did you find this wonderful old piece?

  2. I agree with you Judith about over complicating the palette with too many colors.... I love this rug too. The limited palette doesn't distract from the simple but classy quiet beauty. JB
