Last year I spent a wonderful holiday in Turkey. I did very little sightseeing, preferring to just relax by, and in, the pool. One of the places I did visit was the Temple of Apollo near Ephesus. While the Temple itself was impressive, I want to share some photos that I took at a carpet seller nearby. Most, if not all, of these carpets and rugs were probably produced for the tourist trade. I loved the strong geometric shapes on most of the designs, together with the gorgeous colours. I hope you enjoy the photos. I will also be sharing some of the colour schemes that I extracted from the rugs on my Instagram feed https://www.instagram.com/annettekirstinedesigns/.
