Do you remember this inspiration board I had put together for our bedroom??
So, I've decided to sell it, and get something larger. With the option to choose a new rug (which by the way, RugsUSA is having a 60% off sale that ends today) my options for the room just got a whole lot more exciting.
You all know how much I ADORE a creme colored upholstered headboard with nail-head trim... but after months of thinking, I've come to the conclusion that a headboard in this color won't stand out against our off-white walls and it won't add much interest to the room (sad). I've shifted gears, and I'm going to be brave with color!
What color?? Navy! I am now thinking of a lush navy headboard that will be the room's centerpiece.
Taking a look on RugsUSA, I've narrowed down my choices to these three rugs...
Amazing right?? Not only are all three of these available in 7.6'x9.6' measurements, but all three are below $300 - one of them is even below $200 (can you guess which one??).
I can pretty much guarantee that Kris will veto the zebra print rug immediately, even though it looks so soft, the grey is so pretty, and I love a good zebra print if it's not too crazy. I'm not even going to pick that battle...
I love the bold pattern and the rich color on the navy rug, but I worry that it will be TOO graphic (is that possible?). On the other hand, if we go for a navy headboard, this rug would really tie everything together.
The third option is a pretty neutral trellis rug. This rug (like the zebra) looks incredibly soft, and I love the colors, but while it will be versatile no matter how much I change up the room, is it boring? Also, is the trellis pattern too similar to the rug in our living room?
I need to make a decision today since the sale ends today - if I'm not getting 60% off, I can't justify a new rug. To help me make this decision, I've put together two new inspiration boards for the bedroom.
Here is the first one...
I like this option... I yellow and navy look so great together, so I could use the extra fabric from the roman shade in our hallway to make a few pillows, and whip up a quick navy chevron lumbar pillow as well. I keep coming back to the fact that the rug is simple, and that it will go with everything, no matter how many times I change the accessories up.
I also like the idea that I can move it into the living room for a very different look since these rugs will be the same size!
Next up, is the inspiration board with the navy rug...
I have some thinking to do, but by the end of today, I might have a new rug on it's way!! No tricks this Halloween, just treats!!
