Temperature Sensitive Rug Changes Colors To Match the Seasons

When you decorate a room you're stuck with a single color palette all year round that doesn't necessarily reflect the changing seasons outside. So maybe we should look toSiren Elise Wilhelmsen's color-changing rugfor inspiration on designing a room that reflects, or contrasts, the temperatures outside.

Wilhelmsen refers to her Season Carpet as a "soft thermometer" and it's made from 100-percent wool dyed with special heat-sensitive pigments that change color depending on the ambient temperature. The rug is actually made up of three different colors that all shift their hues at different temperature ranges, so the pattern should actually be fairly unique as it transitions throughout the year. Unless your home's thermostat always maintains the perfect temperature indoors. In that case the rug's not going to put on a show for you. More here.

This is such a great idea, it really takes a lot of guesswork out of buying a carpet which is useful sounding.
