Rugs Through The Years: Gypsy Rose

Welcome to the fourth installment of our monthly series, “Rugs Through the Years!” Throughout this year-long series, we’ll highlight 12 of our best-selling rugs, and present a few ways each fan favorite has been styled since its debut. As the cherry on top, we’ll be giving away the featured rug to one lucky reader each month!

Last month, we highlighted our Swedish Stripe Rug and this month, we’re looking back on our Gypsy Rose Rug, offered in both Cotton Hooked and Wool Hooked styles.

Rugs Thru The Years - Gypsy Rose | Annie Selke's Fresh American Style

Based on a “filthy little rug” Annie found in a textile sale at the Hancock Shaker Village in Massachusetts, Gypsy Rose—all cleaned up and looking gorge in a multicolor floral—has versatility and a vintage appeal that’s über-popular with decorators and homeowners looking for a dash of retro character. Let’s take a peek at a few ways Gypsy Rose has been styled in years past…

 

Gypsy Rose Amongst Modern Art

Gypsy Rose was placed in an exhibit at MASSMoCa adding bright pops of color and visual appeal to the museum’s beautiful wood floors.

 

Gypsy Rose in a Colorful Living Room

Here, a light and bright living room is grounded with a Gypsy Rose Wool Hooked Rug. The colorful palette of the rug works perfectly amongst the character-rich and happy-hued pillows, throws and storage bins. Can you tell we have a mild obsession with pattern?

 

Gypsy Rose in a Rustic Hallway

I have always loved the Gypsy rug! The colorful living room is my favorite of the pics above – but this pattern always makes me think of an old friend who has it in her house!

I have a small Gypsy Rose rug in my country kitchen where it is at home among exposed brick, colorful stenciling and painted beaded board wainscotting. And I love it! But the “colorful living room” setting, above, gives me a whole new perspective on what this cluster of color and pattern could do in a room with white walls. I think I need another Gypsy Rose for my upstairs landing, thank you very much!

We just bought a house near the beach and have been looking for decorating inspiration. I have seen too many sea shells, crabs and boats. ⛵️The “Gypsy Rose in a Colorful Living Room” looks like the direction my colorful family needs to go in.⛱

I love the Colourful Living Room moment. I have a bit of a thing for turquoise and know the rug would go perfectly in my own living room. Eclectic and a bit boho suits me down to the ground.

oh I love this rug, it would look good anywhere, but I think it looks best in the rustic hallway, although I don’t have a rustic hallway, it would look great in my bedroom, or dining room at home.

The Gypsy Rose would be perfect in my new house in Pine Island. The walls are all pale, pale pink and called”Intimate White”. Gypsy Rose would give me the splash of color I desperately need in the large great room.

The Gypsy Rose rug looks great in the living room, especially with all the pops of color. It reminds me of a crochet afghan that my grandmother made years ago with different colored blocks-wonderful memories!! I would love to bring the rug into my home as a special treasured memory.

The gorgeous Gypsy Rose rug in a Colorful Living Room pic is my favorite decor selection.

The Gypsy Rose rug unifies this room in a clever, creative manner… so much so that this particular combination radiates positive energy!
