Jumpstart Your Day: Transform Your Space Into a Lush Meadow With These Area Rugs

It feels good to be welcomed by the green, green grass of home


Many homeowners are slowly turning their spaces into calming havens that would remind them of the outdoors and their favorite vacation spots. The reasons vary—there are those who simply want a style update and others would like to come home to a serene space where they can forget the stressful city.

To accomplish this, a few invest in organic home must-haves and many are trying their best to start and maintain a garden. However, it's not always possible to have a sprawling green space in the city. Enter Alexandra Kehayoglou and her magnificent wool rug artworks that mimic pastures and mossy textures—we can only wish that we can get our hands on these pieces, too!

Made using scraps of thread from her family's carpet factory in Buenos Aires, each piece highlights the arduous hand-tufting process to create the exceptional carpets and rugs that somehow resemble moss, trees, and pastures.

This work of art would look good in a living area that needs a refreshing boost. Pair it with neutral-colored furnishings and your space will be transformed into a tropical getaway.

Kehayoglou's work is not limited to carpets that you can use to liven up a room. Many of her creations can also function as part tapestry that flow from the walls to the floor and as covers for chairs and stools. With such pieces, one can instantly spruce up a bare room and turn it into an inviting space that's reminiscent of an enchanting forest.

To learn more about Kehayoglou's works, you can visit her website. You can also follow her on Instagram.
