The Reeve table from West Elm is reminiscent of something you`d be really fortunate to find second-hand or vintage, but if you don`t have such luck (or the patience to hunt one down), this is a really great alternative.

Every rug should be well made with color fast dyes and good yarns and straight seams regardless of whether it is hand made of silk or machine made of wool. For bedrooms, a good rule of thumb for size is to leave approximately 12" of floor space between the edge of the rug and the base molding.

A good contemporary rug should probably cost $10 to 15,000, unless it is a normal rug in which case $5,000 should do it, I must say that I am not quite sure.

What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? Only Jesus knows the answer to this. You can spend as much as you would like to!

It is most important to think about what objects you are choosing communicate, especially since you are creating a self portrait.
