Typeface Tuesday: Rugs with Sans Serif Fonts

Before we found out we were expecting, I'd always imagined us living in a loft. When I'm between books and without Internet connection on the train, I sometimes daydream about what it would like if we'd moved into a loft. Recently I came across some contemporary rugs that won't fit with the feel of our Railroad flat. They'd go perfectly in that loft I dream about.

My daydream loft has three floors. The bottom floor houses the master suite. The space is divided into a sleeping area, bathroom, and office. As I'm won't to do, I'd take over the office space. To make it hip, I might choose to place this Lil Mo Hipster rug by Momeni under the desk that showcases abbreviations commonly seen in texts and tweets.
The second level is the main level with a kitchen, family area, and dining space as well as formal entry and another bathroom. To highlight the value of family, either the color or black and white version of the Family rug designed by Robert and Cortney Novogratz would do in the living space. To warm up an entry way, I'd add a statement rug, This is Art, which would be sure to get a snicker.
The top level, more of a balcony with a second room and third bathroom, is the library. The space doubles as a guest space, but is really cubes' man cave. This would be his space to personalize.
Do you ever decorate spaces you might have lived in?
Ciao Bella!
