New Rug.

If you follow my Facebook page, you saw that I got a rug for the living room. I ordered it from RugsUSA during their July 4th 75% off sale. Can't beat that! They now ship free to Canada and it arrived in a week. I was little concerned what I'd pay in duty but it was very little. I'll definitely be ordering again.


Check it out!


It works well with the wallpaper in the room. I worried about that a bit. As much as I adore the color and pattern on the wallpaper in the living room, it has been a limiting factor when choosing decor for the room. Something to think about if you are putting up wallpaper!

I think that it works here because the colors are similar and the scale of the chevron is much larger than the pattern on the wallpaper.


The rug is 100% wool and the quality is actually superior to what I was expecting. It is quite beautiful in person. I'm very surprised that I went with chevron. I have been feeling "over it" for quite some time now. However, it seems less severe/busy than most chevron prints, if that makes any sense? Plus, the muted colors soften it a a bit.


I'd show you a shot of the rug in the whole room but I'm changing things up a bit. I've had the soft serene look in the living room for a while and I'm craving some color and pattern! The rug is a stepping stone toward the new look. You'll have to wait and see!

Happy Friday!

  3. It looks wonderful! I think the softer colors make the pattern much more managable. I also ordered a rug for my living room during that sale. They really had fantastic prices!

  4. Love it! My first thought was 'wow, that looks great with her wall!' Can't wait to see what else you have planned.

  5. I love it, it's perfect with your wallpaper. I think you're right - it works because the scale of the two prints is different. But I don't think you should worry too much about mixing in some more pattern in there. The walls almost read as texture in photos. I love the subtle layer that adds to a space - it's one of the hallmarks of good design as far as I'm concerned.

  6. They look great together! I worried about finding a fabric with pattern for my upholstered headboard to go with yellow chevron curtains.

  11. It's totally gorgeous, especially in your lovely living room! And I'm with you, it doesn't scream chevron to me, it almost has a more herringbone feel to it. Great score!!!

  18. That’s a pretty new rug! The design is so modern and the colors are very relaxing. Soft colored modern rugs are the best ones for me, and light yellow, blue, and gray are my favorite colors, especially those with simple and pleasing designs! Those are actually the carpet colors we have at home.
