My house is my pride, I live here for a few years now and I love the way it's slowly becoming my home. There was actually just one thing I missed: some carpets. Okay, I had a big off-white carpet but it didn't live long. What was I thinking when I bought that one? With my cat, my habit of drinking wine/wathing tv/make phonecalls in the same time. You can imagine what it looked like after a while.
And because I'm not so into the 'mainstream' carpets (and I don't own a fortune) I bought some second-hand Swedisch carpets ('trasmotter'). I love them, I love the idea that they're made of recycled clothes, that they're not too precisely made. And if I make some stains on it, no one would even even notice ;-)
