There are many fabulous reasons to live in Baltimore, but one of the most underrated are the homes. Whether you shack up in a studio in Mt Vernon or a three-story row home in Federal Hill, chances are you've got either exposed brick, twelve foot ceilings, original molding, massive windows or wood floors. Of all of these features, wood floors are arguably the best. Baltimore's aversion to carpet is remarkable; maybe landlords don't want to deal with steam cleaning after each tenant moves out, but we'd like to think it's because they have a soft spot in their hearts for the romance and style of original wood flooring. And because they know a gorgeous rug hands down beats wall-to-wall carpet.
We found these incredible Luke Irwin rugs and immediately checked our savings to see if the Bank of America fairy dropped some cash into our accounts. That cold bitch fluttered away without even glancing back, but we figure we can afford one of these incredible wood grain-inspired rugs with our Keep the Change money. In thirty years.
