two turkish bedrooms

the bedroom in catherine & zeki özdoğan's istanbul pied-à-terre (image from at home in turkey, photographed by solvi dos santos)
 an all-white background sets off the bed covering from malatya, turkey that was originally a curtain used to divide communal living space in a nomad's tent.  it was dyed with saffron and madder.  the kilim on the floor is also from southeastern anatolia.  this bedroom makes me want to paint all my walls white and save my pennies for colorful antique weavings.

so many colors and prints and textures all working together harmoniously.  how cheering!  turkey is in my top 5 would-love-to-visit countries.

a genius arrangement of columns and striped fabric create a striking display for books, objects and art.  next time i happen upon some weathered old posts at an architectural salvage shop, i'm bringing them home for this expressed use.
