Look! Painted Rug

Look! Painted Rug

Yesterday Holly posted some photos of a lovely contemporary architecture studio on Decor8. The photos are all inspiring—full of space and light—but we were especially taken with this fun detail: the abstract impression of a rug painted directly onto the concrete floor...

In this photo of the larger, lofty space, you can see how the painted rug delineates the conference area and adds a note of warmth and whimsy amidst all the sleek metal, white, and wood. We love it!

This could be an interesting solution in any open-plan living space where different areas of a room are used for different purposes. Most of us might be reluctant to paint on our floors, but it certainly would be cheaper than buying a real rug (if more permanent)... any ideas about how to create this effect as a DIY project?
