We are slowly making progress in the guest room. Mainly, I cleaned out most of the stuff that was being stored in here. Funny how a second room quickly turns into a storage unit (especially when you don't have a garage). But what I really want to talk about today, is the rug.
Originally, I wanted a jute rug for this room. Keep it cozy, natural with a few punches of color...but, the jute made it feel like a cream box. Note: The owners of our home just painted it and rather we hold off on changing the wall color for now. And, the blinds are a brown (I plan on doing a roman over it or drapes) which also already gives the space an element of natural colors/fibers. At any rate, we have hunted online, at specialty rug stores, at big box stores- and, I think we found one? Again, think...I do love the color (kinda brings out the color in the headboard), the texture (it is so soft), the fact that my guests won't worry about getting it dirty, the ombre vibe going on & for whatever reason it reminds me of two things: the ocean (which is so close to us) and a cozy sweater.
Things to note that will also change the room up. 1. that piece of art won't be just thrown randomly on the wall 2. there will be new tables placed in here (instead of a wooden crate & our old bamboo bathroom organizer) 3. there will be different lamps 4. window treatments 5. art 6. dresser etc. so you have an idea of other factors around this rug
Here's my question for you all:
1. do I keep this rug and stop looking or
2. try a leopard rug (LOVE this idea) or
3. opt for a bold graphic print rug?
i'd love your opinion :)
& thank you to all who read this post in it's entirety . who would have thought there could be so many words around a rug...
