Needing Some Cowhide in My Life...

Hey folks! Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you all! I am so blessed and grateful to all the wonderful men, women and their families that sacrifice it all for our freedom!
 I am in the greatest mood because, all of my furniture and goodies from the U.S. has FINALLY arrived!! I have been setting up the house and painting furniture like crazy! There are so many things that we need that we didn't anticipate needing until now. We have to get a rug for a our family room. Winters here are frigid and I want the place to feel super cozy, relaxed and homey. I am considering a cowhide rug... The reason for this is, it is gender, color and pattern neutral. Patterns and bold colors on rugs are great...I love it! But, I change things far too much to have a specific pattern or color on something as expensive as a rug. I keep seeing pictures of rooms with cowhides in them and I am completely and utterly (no pun intended) in love with the look of them! 
Below is a zebra-dyed cowhide.
I don't know the designers of the images below but if anyone does, please tell me so I can give credit where it's due.

Drooling yet?

I found some gorgeous hides online from the rawhide company  and I am hoping they will ship to Europe... Here are some that I love, what do you think?

or in brown

 Do you have any hides or faux hides in your home?

  1. I love cowhides too! I love the one from the last living room picture and the 4th & 5th ones. Congrats on your move!


  2. Molly, have you popped over to an ikea lately? They have some very inexpensive hides, very cute.

    1. I need to! Good thinking! I looked at the Ikea site yesterday and only saw the big "cow" looking ones...with the typical spots but I bet if I went there I would see more options...Have a great day Ann!

    2. Went to Ikea, got one and I love it! Thank you Ann!

  3. I was just going to suggest idea too! Bought a beaut there a few weeks ago.... Can't wait for the room to be ready for it :o)

    1. I just got one from there and love love love it! It was the only greyish one in the bunch and was better than what I even dreamed up....Oh how I love Ikea! Thank you so much!


Thanks for the lovely comments! Each and everyone means so much to me! xo
