Who has not coveted these lovely Beni Ouarain Moroccan rugs that can be seen in many interiors lately ... For my part, I have to say that I was looking for one for a while, they're just beautiful and it's a timeless decorative accessory because ot the mere colors and patterns. The only problem is the price which unfortunately is beyond the budgets of many of us ! So all those like me who dream of owning one of these wonders will love this DIY.

Qui n'a pas convoité ces jolis tapis marocains Beni Ouarain que l'on peut voir dans de nombreux intérieurs ces derniers temps... Pour ma part, je dois dire que j'en cherchais un depuis un moment car je les trouve magnifiques et leurs couleurs et motifs simples en font des accessoires de décoration intemporels. Le seul problème est leur prix qui malheureusement est hors budget pour nombres d'entre nous ! Alors tout ceux qui comme moi rêvent de posséder une de ces merveilles vont adorer ce DIY.

This project is very simple to make and very affordable! I saw it a few weeks ago right here and since that I was thinking that I absolutely had to do it and now that's done.

Ce projet est très simple à réaliser et surtout très abordable ! Je l'ai vu il y a quelques semaines de cela juste ici et depuis je me suis dis qu'il fallait à tout prix que je me lance et voilà chose faite.

It's so simple and fast! To be honest, yesterday afternoon I have had the time to go to Ikea to buy my rug, I went back home,  I customized it and I set things back to their place. And voila!

C'est si simple et si rapide ! Pour tout vous dire, hier après-midi j'ai eu le temps d'aller à Ikea, de rapporter mon tapis à la maison, de le customiser et de tout remettre en place. Et voilà !

    Hi Nadia!!! I absolutely love it and you room is gorgeous!! I’m pretty sure I’ve been to your blog before and I’ll definitely be sure to stick around this time!!

    Oh yes, now I remember it is because of that bird wallpaper that was on Little Green Notebook with your stool! I LOVED that paper! The flamingo prints are so cute too and your wicker pink peacock looking chair is amazing!

      Happy that you like it Deniquo! Crystal had such a great idea for this DIY!
      About the coffee table, I bought it a few months ago and I love it too. It’s a vintage table of the 80’s but I still have to find the right accessories for this little beauty (beautiful books, flowers, candles…)

    Wow! You did it! I attempted this with a flokati + dye several months back and frankly it was a mess. The smaller pile in your rug + marker method seems the way to go. You have me rethinking this project for my own house with the new materials. Well done Nadia!

    I’m actually asking a question about your living room :) Are those Ikea cabinets on the wall as your media console?

    Beautiful job on the rug! Would you mind sharing the source for your wall mounted cabinets on either side of the gorgeous, larger center cabinet?

    Hello, I really like your diy, and I would like to do it!!! but I have a doubt .. The sharpie-pen is special for textile or not? I wonder if it could be erase if you wash the carpet? Sorry about my english !!

    Thank you!!

      Hola May,
      Thanks for your lovely comment and I am happy that you like the DIY Beni Ouarain rug!
      To answer your question and after time of use I would say now that the Sharpie is not the best pen for this project. Because I noticed that after a while it fades which means that it would probably erase if you wash it.
      I think that the best thing to do as you suggest in your comment is to use a specific pen for fabric or textile to avoid that :)
      Hope it will help you…
      Thanks again and have a lovely day!
      P.S: by the way your English is really good ;)
