Channeling Madeiline Castaing

The need for a new rug got my creative juices going and I delved into several of my design books with great anticipation.

I am always drawn to the style of french decorator, Madeleine Castaing.

Her unique look of blended styles and layering, with a sense of humor thrown in, enthralls me.

My copy of Emily Evans Eerdmans book, The World of Madeleine Castaing, is dog eared and well worn.

I love the animal print carpets.

Yes, that was it, I would find an animal print rug for the room!

Rugs Direct had a rug that looked like just the thing and thinking it worth I try, I ordered one.


Cammie agrees – it’s just right!
