I’m having a rug crisis. there is a huge sale going on at Cost Plus World Market. So I’m being manic about rugs right now.
This is what I’ve bought:
Master Bedroom. One word. WHITE. I absolutely adore this rug.
Is it too small? It’s only 6x9. (Pay no attention to the fact that I have no bed skirt or baseboard around the mattress. That will change soon. We just upgraded to a king shortly before my hubby left.)
While we don’t have kids now, God willing, there will be little feet pitter pattering around here. Is it reasonable to expect to keep the master bedroom relatively unscathed? Please parents, be brutally honest. And more importantly, have I ever mentioned how much I love wine. RED wine. Almost exclusively. And coffee. BLACK coffee. Yes, my dentist loves me. I think I scare me, more than the thought of kids scare me…..
(Edited to add later: Also, I will have a bench at the end of the bed, which for me makes a huge difference on the look of the rug.)
A 5” round rug. Two of them actually. Both similar styles, but different colors. The first, upstairs. (Again, never mind the unfinished stairs and the hole in the wall)
The second. Downstairs. Right in front of the entry way in the foyer. Better colors, but it feels too traditional….
Not sure where this one would go, but I LOVE the colors. It’s smaller. 5 x 8. Originally I bought it for the dining room, but I think it’s the wrong size….
Um, yes. Those are moving boxes. Three years old. Thankyouverymuch.
Lastly, a chorcoal and crème rug. I like the pattern, but is gray too dreary? It’s for the future library that will consist of white built in bookshelves. I think that will brighten the room up a lot. Plus there are two skylights, but NO overhead lighting. You can see the color of the wall are a beautiful creamy rich taupe.
What do you guys think? They are of course all 100% wool so very good quality for the price ($299 for the larger ones and $100 for the rounds). Rugs are a big decision. I want a punch of color, but the rugs I really want are in the thousand$ range. That’s a no go. I have a kitchen remodel coming up that will eat my rug budget for a mid morning snack!
p.s. that dresser you see in the left hand corner I bought at a flea market for $45. STEAL! Fix up job, but it’s gorgeous.
