Aaaaaand the carpet, again!

My husband laughs at my fascination with hotel carpet. I’m amused at myself, too, but there is a reason I often take pictures of it. Each hotel chain tries to make a memorable impression on their guests. They place a lot of emphasis on unusual designs, things that you wouldn’t see in your home.

This carpet in Virginia was right up my alley, so to speak.

Lots of color–straight line improv–unusual angles. Looked like a quilt I would like to make.

With a nice stripe to go along…

Makes me so ready to get back to work. So many ideas floating around and I need to get them out of the thought realm and into reality!

    • I don’t think carpet stores have this kind of stuff because what people put in their houses has to be neutral. People need to live with it for years and years and what’s in the hotels is usually more flamboyant.

    • The chance to show off a “different” design must run through the mind of a designer. They don’t get to do that for normal household designs.
