Area Rugs on Carpet

3 Jun

Would you say this is taboo? a big no-no in decorating?

Well, as I’ve never had formal training,  I prefer to have no rules in decorating. I just go with the flow!

So when I took the PB moorish rug out of the living room, I wasn’t quite ready to part with it, so I moved it into our bedroom. I’ve never been a fan of rugs on carpet, but after googling a bit, I noticed I really liked the color & pattern it can bring to boring carpet.

This room is gorgeous, the chevron rug adds so much to this room.

Ok so here’s what it looks like in our bedroom

So, what do you think?

    Looks really nice. I actually think putting a rug with some pattern on a boring beige carpet adds a lot more interest to the room. I have several throughout my upstairs rooms, until one day I can afford hardwoods up there.

    I love the rug in your room! It was once considered taboo, but has really been fully accepted in the past five or ten years. They can add such color, pattern and texture. Love them.

      Its the Moorish tile rug from Pottery Barn. They no longer sell it but you can find it on craigslist and ebay sometimes. I actually bought mine off eBay.

    I like it; I would pull it up a bit further under the bed towards the pillow end, so it doesn’t look like it is too small for the space. The colors are pretty in the room.

    The area rugs that we used at home uses cotton and synthetic fibers. Cotton is great for absorbing moisture and residual water. Synthetic fiber is great for providing strength.;.,’,

    I love the yellow area rug may I ask where it can be purchased at?

    • Lizzie Stewart August 11, 2012 at 3:04 PM #

      The area rug is from Pottery Barn about 5 years ago. I think you can still find them on ebay or craigslist.

    area rugs are great because they can really filter those dirt and grime before it goes into the inside of your house. :.,..

    How do you keep the rug on top from bunching up in places? I’ve tried every thing.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your website.
    It seems like some of the written text within your posts are running off
    the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thanks
