Midday Muse: Moroccan Lattice Rugs

Browsing through Kelly Wearstler's portfolio, I came across this image of a living room in a Santa Monica residence that she designed. While the traditional/Hollywood Regency style of the space is certainly elegant that's not the reason the photo caught my eye. The grayish-blue, lattice-patterned rug was glaring back at me; it looked oddly familiar. To hear where I'd seen a similar piece,


The West Elm Taksim Tile Rug ($69 and up) suspiciously resembles the one in the Wearstler-designed living room. Considering that her interiors are often marked by luxe furnishings, I wonder if the rug inspired West Elm to design a more affordable alternative. They're both beautiful, and I've actually been drooling over the Taksim Tile Rug for months. I'd be happy to own either one. Would you?

I love introducing an exotic element into a room! This pattern is bold but not overwhelmingly so.

the rug is really nice and versatile. I like a small lattice design rather than a huge one.

Such an elegant room I would love to have that room in my house.

that room could be easily recreated by pieces that we currently carry at west elm. We even have a lamp that is a similar material to the lamp shown.

I have one of these rugs at home - we got the runner size for a hallway and it looks great! I also prefer the West Elm pattern scale, at least for anything 8x10 or under.

Love this rug! I have also been drooling it for a while -- unfortunately it's sold out in most sizes now at West Elm! And right when I was finally ready to buy it!
