Do you have a rug in front of your kitchen sink?
If so, what's it like? Size? Material? I'm thinking of adding one to my kitchen, and have fallen in love with one I've seen online (I've got a number of chickens in my kitchen, so this would fit in nicely, I think). It's hand-hooked wool -- would that hold up in an area where it could potentially have water splashing on it (when DH washes dishes)?
Also, I can't make up my mind as to which background color -- I thought I was leaning towards the black, since it seems to really make the design stand out (but I'm also picturing it covered in Sunny's white cat fur which is somewhat putting me off). My cabinets are red with black hardware, my floor is Mexican saltillo - so various shades of terra cotta. Thoughts?
This (sort of) shows the flooring that's in the kitchen and adjoining breakfast area:
