Kilim Love

I know many of us are heading towards warmer weather but I had to share this photoshoot from Alt I Hemmet (Sweden) with gorgeous kilims everywhere. This is definitely my kind of room with all the earthy warm tones against the coolness of the walls. If I were an expert on ethnic textiles, I would be able to tell you why red, greens and dark blues were so commonly used- the availability of those dyes maybe? All I can say is that you can't go wrong with that combination. Does it appeal to you?
