Our Favorite Décor from The Vintage Rug Shop
We have been following The Vintage Rug Shop on Instagram for awhile now, and we love everything that’s posted! Since 2015, designer and curator Brittany Chinaglia of Britt Interiors has been selling one-of-a-kind vintage rugs online & she recently opened her brick-and-mortar shop in Oakland, California – which we can’t wait to visit the next time we’re in Northern California! In the meantime, we just spend hours browsing her online store!
One of our favorite design tips is to incorporate both high and low price points, as well as new and antique/vintage pieces to create a balanced design that feels timeless, lived in, and cozy. The Vintage Rug Shop sources handmade goods and one-of-a-kind textiles from all over the world – hand-chosen by Brittany herself. From colorful pieces to neutral décor, we can't get enough of the stunning vintage rugs, pillows, and their recently launched artwork collection! We also adore the blankets (perfect for the foot of your bed) & tabletop accessories! While pricey, these items are one-of-a-kind and a great way to start a collection in your home that you and your family can pass down for years to come!

We think it would look great in a living room or master bedroom retreat. If you need a larger size for your space, layer the rug over a jute or flatweave rug!
Brown-Stamped Batik Lumbar Pillow from The Vintage Rug Shop - $245

This 100% cotton handmade blanket from Morocco features adorable pom pom tassels & it will definitely a nice cozy, eclectic accent to your bedroom! The greige tone is also very versatile & goes with a mix of neutral and colorful décor with both cool and warm undertones.

Escapist “Santorini” Candle from The Vintage Rug Shop - $38
Even if we can’t jet off to Santorini at the drop of a hat, we can’t wait to try this 100% soy wax candle featuring a top note of Mediterranean fig, a middle note of red currant, and a base of amber and sandalwood for an at-home vacation ambience.
“Hawk” 3’x9’ Runner from The Vintage Rug Shop - $3,500
After a recent clumsy mistake in the kitchen, one of our editors broke an entire bottle of wine that spilled all over her kitchen runner… so she’s in the market for a new one. While we wouldn’t recommend a stunner like this in an accident-ridden space, this would make a statement in a hallway!

This 18" square hmong vintage-textile pillow sourced from Thailand is so gorgeous! We love the texture & hue for a cozy bedroom or refined-casual living room.

A blanket at the end of the bed really finishes the styling of a room. This Moroccan 100% cotton handmade blanket with 100% wool pom poms is just what you need to take your bedroom from blah to serene!
