Since moving last year, home decor has been on my mind non-stop. We’re tackling it all little by little which is good because I’m kind of known for changing my mind about things. My husband just loves that (read sarcasm). Oh and I’m eagerly awaiting the release of Joanna Gaines’ (of HGTV’s Fixer Upper) new furniture line which is to be out in the next month or so. I’m slightly obsessed and dying to see what she’s created!
I have a few girlfriends that are always decorating and re-decorating along with me so it seems we’re always passing ideas back and forth. From paint to wallpaper and renovating kitchen’s (I’m in the middle of designing one with a friend at the moment and hoping she’ll let me share details once it’s complete!) and everything in between. I love playing around with every last detail. That leads me to today’s topic of rugs. I’ve already tackled 3 rugs for our home and I still need 2 more that I haven’t figured out just yet. I always go back and forth on whether I want a beautiful rug that makes a statement or a soft neutral that will blend in subtly with the space. I’ve done some of both so far (neutral for the family room and bold in the dining room and my husband’s office). Needless to say, I’ve spent my time scouring the internet. So today I’m sharing a dozen of my favorite neutral and statement rugs. For me personally, I love neutrals for living rooms and bedrooms. And it can be fun to play with statement rugs for playrooms (see #3 and #5), offices (we used #3 in my husband’s and it’s perfect), nurseries (see #1 and #6) etc. The fun part is that there are no rules when it comes to rugs. You can do whatever suites you and your lifestyle.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you tend to lean one way or the other?
