Rugs in the Kitchen: Cozy or Icky?

Recently, reading through Swedish design magazine Plaza Interiors, I came across the Stockholm apartment of stylist Hanna Wessman. Though I enjoyed her mix of white space anchored by matte black design elements punctuated with the occasional pop of color, the element that really caught my eye was in her kitchen.In her bright white kitchen I couldn't help but notice that the room benefitted from her use of a throw rug that added a bit of soft pink. While I love the way this looks, I have a difficult time imagining how it's possible to keep a rug in the kitchen clean and free of stains.

Would you ever use a carpet in the kitchen?
