The Look for less: ABC carpet and home Color Reform Rugs

Raise your hand if you've drooled over these rugs???

I know I have, they are absolutely beautiful!

They take old worn out carpets, neutralize the color and dye them with an over-saturated color. The carpets they use were unusable vintage rugs –  unusable because the color had worn out in spots, not because the carpets themselves were worn. The newly dyed versions can be used on a wall or a floor.

ABC carpet and home Color Reform rugs start price of $799 (their website is down right now but that price was taken from here.)

While I really appreciate the skill that goes into "recycling" these rugs, I found an AWESOME substitute for those of us who can't spend a years salary on one rug. Yay!!

Home Decorators Euphoria Area Rug in blue, also comes in red and gray!

9'10"x12'10"  $599 (with free shipping right now!)

By the way my little slice of blogtopia celebrated it's one year birthday last week! Can't believe I've been blogging for a year now!!

Update: Reichel at Copy Cat Chic featured this post today along with an updated ABC rug in a similar size/color. Thanks Reichel!
