okay, so this is actually about runners in the kitchen. they don’t have to be kilim… that’s just the ideal. and alliterative. our kitchen is very light and bright, and i think a runner could definitely add some texture and color to the kitchen. i’ve been looking for runners every time i go thrifting/rummaging/etc. but good secondhand rugs are not easy to find. and i am picky about what i want, and won’t settle for just anything. so i’m going to wait it out.
