Karen Puder Creates Adorable Abode with Amber Interiors and Blue Parakeet Rugs

 Timeless treasure

Timeless treasure

Karen Puder’s enviably elegant and welcoming home was featured in a glowing article on The Everymom on November 9th, and she was kind enough to give us a shout out! Amber Interiors, an amazing company headed by the effortlessly chic Amber Lewis, inspired Karen to design the perfect modern + vintage nursery, and we couldn’t be more flattered that Karen says she “stalked” our @BlueParakeetRugs Instagram for just the right rug to build the room around — the feeling is mutual!

“I came across Blue Parakeet Rugs on Instagram and stalked her page as she posted new finds. When she featured a colorful antique Heriz, I knew I had to plan the entire nursery around it.”

The finished room, centered around a jewel toned Heriz, is everything new parents dream of: comfortable, luxurious, and practical. And as we keep preaching, antique rugs are tough as nails, and you should never be afraid to put them in high-traffic, high-mess areas. Leave it to Karen to put it best, “I might sound a bit obsessed, but I really think vintage rugs are great for families. These things are hundreds of years old and have been through it all. You can’t mess them up. So bring on the spit-up, spaghetti sauce, and red wine. These suckers are resilient.” Mic drop! We couldn’t agree more. Click through for the full article, and congrats to Karen and her hubby on their beautiful baby Elodie and their lovely home.
