The dining room, which is also my library, has always been difficult to photograph with natural light or any light for that matter. Both rooms face north and receive very little sunlight, but in wintertime with its leafless trees, more light is allowed to enter. So it was the ideal time to pull out my camera and photograph this space for the first time since the installation of the new Stark carpet. And of course, the lively vase with its feisty Bromeliad will provide a complimentary punch of color.
Now that my living room has a new area rug, it was time to take new photos. It’s gray and cold outside, and I felt like I needed some indulgence to brighten up my workday. Even though I may be working across the hall in my office, I can still appreciate the sound and smells of a crackling fire. But this time, instead of heading back to work after adding the logs, I chose to procrastinate a little longer. Hence these photos showcasing my new silk Stark area rug.

For two custom silk rugs by Stark Carpet. The color-match sample took three months to arrive. So I will have to wait at least another nine months for the finished products, which will be two area rugs, one each for the living and dining rooms. With the exception of dimensions both are the same color and design—a square version for the dining room and a rectangular one for the living room. Hopefully the carpets will arrive before I become an ancient relic too old to appreciate their beauty.
