Southwest or South Beach?

Is it Southwestern? Or South Beachern? This rug:

That's a trick question, because it's both. It's a little Miami Vice. And yet so chic with its hip Southwestern ways. I can't stop staring.

A black couch with straight, mid-century lines would perch nicely on this floor textile. Accompanied by gold wall sconces. And maybe some pillows in tones of yellow and aqua. And an emerald green throw for good measure...and these shoes to coordinate with said throw.

Agreed? How would you style it?

p.s. It's the Tribe rug by Matthew Williamson for The Rug Company.



  1. I'm not normally drawn to either South Beach or Southwestern style, but this rug is gorgeous! I'd put it in a really neutral, traditional room so it would stand out.


  2. I've been in love with this rug for sometime. I keep thinking of recreating it with a painted rug.
