Virginia Johnson Turtle Rug and Other Turtle Home Decor

Roundup: It's Turtle Time

I grew up on 13 acres of woodland with a brook that ran through our property. Although the location offered us privacy from neighbors, we did encounter plenty of other creatures on the land, including deer, raccoons, possums, owls, and my favorite: turtles! I often saw turtles meandering across our mile-long driveway and always stopped to say hello to the gentle reptiles.

I never thought about bringing them inside my home, though — that is, until I saw this Virginia Johnson Rug ($325). The olive swimming critters have so much personality, and I think they'd look absolutely adorable in a children's room. I won't be furnishing a nursery any time soon, so I'll have to bookmark this design. The good thing is that there are plenty of other turtles to welcome into my habitat. Here are a few of my favorites:
