At home lately : my new rug

02.06.2015

I had been searching and scouting the web forever, looking for the perfect Boucherouite rug to add a pop of color to my space. And I finally found it.

Secret Berbère is a duo, Wilfrid and Lamia, who lives 6 months a year in one of the poorest areas in Morocco far away from the touristic and jet-set spots – the other half , they divide their time between Valencia, Spain, where their stock is located, and Brussels, Belgium, where they opened their first showroom. When they are in Morocco, they go on expeditions in the Atlas Mountains to scout vintage and newly made rugs, meet the makers and have at heart to develop a sustainable business. It’s so rare these days to come across people with values and principles so strong – they’d rather lose business if it’s done with the wrong intention. And their rugs are absolutely gorgeous. You need to go have a look at these beauties available online.

When found, the rugs are restored and cleaned, carefully packed and shipped worldwide so they are ready for your home when the mailman rings the door bell. I highly recommend Secret Berbère if you’re looking for a Moroccan rug. Their rugs are made with love and by people who want to share values that tend to be lost these days.

      Merci, Emmanuelle! Je suis vraiment très contente de ce choix. Aujourd’hui, il fait vilain dehors et il pleut des cordes, mais c’est le printemps qui chante dans la maison avec ce tapis! Et le vernis, c’est Rouge Dragon de Chanel [cocorico! ;-)]. Je te souhaite un excellent weekend!

    Si! There is a new brightness in your posts… and I don’t just mean those adorable pops of red. Loving observing your transformation. Makes me feel like spring is in the air already despite today’s mini soon-to-arrive storm. Thank you for today’s bright wake-up! :)

      Haha, you are right. I don’t know if it’s the new me version 2015, or the excitement of the Le Studio launch. I feel it too, and I’m glad it reflects through my blog. Have a lovely weekend Yvonne – and stay safe with this nasty storm we’re expecting. Xo-

    What a stunning rug! I love the colors and texture (and simply everything about it!) of it. I agree that it provides just the perfect pop of color in your bedroom. I love how it looks against the white of your comforter. It’s just simply lovely! I could go on and on for hours about how much I love that rug. Great rug choice!

    Great purchase! It’s a great pop of color, and has an even better story behind it. :-)

    I also love the throw pillows on the bed. Can you tell me about those?

    • French By Design

      Hey Kathy! Glad you like the rug too!
      The pillows are by textile designer Fred Shand. I bought them at Anthropologie a few years ago. Xo-
