The rooms at the Crosby Street are such explosions of textures—check out the headboard, wallpaper and drapes here—that it’s almost shocking to see something so simple on the floor. But then, maybe that’s why the carpet is so simple? So as not to detract from the colorful layers at eye level?
We’re no design experts, but we’re guessing this has something to do with it. After all, the Crosby carpet bears no busy, fugly, stain-hiding pattern, and has no mandate to be interesting the way hallway carpets are often called upon to be.
We suppose if Firmdale designer Kit Kemp did her magic on the floors too, these rooms could end up looking all Alice in Wonderland rather than just quirky, pretty, and vintage-inspired.
