I love the way that I can walk around our house barefoot no matter what the weather. Carpets and rugs make the floor feel warm and comfortable no matter what the temperature is outside. We have some really frosty nights and mornings in this neck of the woods, so it's great to be able to run to the loo without needing to rug up! I have some beautiful vintage rugs that have been in my family for decades. We are about to recarpet the bedrooms, so I have been looking into carpets that look and feel luxurious as well as suiting my rugs.
