“Here’s a look at my little project from today—a vintage-inspired glass table all set for dinner. Loving the Woolston Plaid area rug. Makes it a classic statement.” Photo by @mgracedesigns. #DesignerTakeover #National KarastanMonth

“This is what I call understated luxury. It’s Karastan’s Violetta pattern, made of 100% New Zealand wool and is the perfect choice when looking for soft neutrals. Right now during #NationalKarastanMonth, you can get up to $1,000 off Karastan carpets.”
“As an interior designer, much of my inspiration comes from my travels. I spotted this gorgeous architectural detail in Orvieto, Italy. The sophisticated structure and gray color reminded me of the textured Karastan wool #carpet, Woolcraft Nouveau in Metro Gray.”
“In the showroom with some of my favorite Karastan styles today! From top to bottom: Patola in Denim Wash; Woolcraft Nouveau in Windsor Tan; Astor Row in Fleece; Woolspun in Silver Sage. Let me know in the comments which of these textures/colors you like the best!”
“I’m often designing and decorating in very unique spaces. I love that I can get custom cut-and-bound Karastan carpets as rugs.”
“I’m always looking for color and pattern #inspiration. Would love to see this one as an area rug! I took this photo during my trip to Barcelona. Have you ever found decor inspiration in an expected place? Where?”
“Thanks for joining me for the @KarastanCarpet #DesignerTakeover! Remember to look for inspiration in unexpected places. It makes a difference to find the right, high-quality decor items that reflect your style and your lifestyle.
This is Grace, signing off! You can keep up with my life and #interiordesign projects at @mgracedesigns. Don’t forget to take advantage of #NationalKarastanMonth, the lowest prices of the season on luxury #carpet.”
