Much discussion has been given to the Stark antelope pattern carpet. I have loved it for as long as I have known of its existence. It's sexy and cool, but is it durable enough for the steps? I sometimes wrestle with the practicality of some of my choices. The kids are grown so I don't have to worry about little muddy feet (oh how I miss those little feet), so what if it takes a little extra care?
and ~Animal print is ALWAYS neutral. I have never seen an animal print I have not been drawn to. Therefore it matches everything I have, or hope to have, BUT this particular one happens to be 100% wool and a little pricey.
But damn it looks good! It has the perfect shades of gold, beige and brown.
There's no question, I love it, in all its manifestations. It looks sharp anywhere. The only problem is, my house is beginning to look like a hunting lodge. SO BE IT!
I have an L shaped landing so the challenge will be to lay the carpet with a mitered corner. Do I dare? I like the look of the stripe running length wise in all directions.
A few to consider that are more "price friendly"
This feels a little too taupey
Hmm... funky color
I think this is the clear winner ~
and it is 100% nylon which will be able to withstand a little more wear and tear.
A good thing to consider on steps.
I think it is a good compromise.
Soon, my home will be like where the deer and the antelope play...and the zebra... and the mongolian lamb...
