It’s officially official. This blog has THE best readers on the planet. Second to none.
I don’t know of many gals who can just invite a few thousand stylish people over to her house and ask a decorating question and immediately get awesome feedback.
I mean…while we’re at it, can we just have a fashion show like we used to do when we were in middle school in our moms’ old prom dresses and sing “Love is a Battlefield” into our hairbrushes? Okay, good.
I might have mentioned it before (or maybe you’ve already figured it out with the trial and error that happens around here) that I am not a professional interior designer who went to art school and studied stylistic eras and fabrics and mood boards or any of that. #IWish
I surf around Pinterest and flip through magazines and watch design shows and somewhere in the middle of all that, I try to decipher what is “me”. And it’s kind of exciting to now have a better idea of who “me” really is.
Two things I know for sure- vintage and blue are like a match made in heaven.
Which brings me to this little situation…
We are one DIY project away from calling our bedroom makeover a wrap, except… I’m stumped on choosing a rug to put under our bed.
I’m usually a stick-to-neutrals kind of gal, but one thing I can always get away with to add a bit of color is blue. It works! Color-fearing peeps everywhere rejoice!
It’s the least scary color out there and gorgeous in all kinds of spaces.
And since I’m always on the lookout for low-budget options, I’ve come up with 9 of my absolute favorite blue vintage area rugs to consider for our room.
Most of these rugs are currently marked down at Rugs USA for 70% off right now too.
1. Beaumont Medallion Rug
4. Elephant Ornament Rug
5. Silky Road Vintage Oriental Rug
I love how all of them are a little bit traditional and a little bit modern all at once. These artificially distressed ones seem to have become a trend fairly recently, but I don’t think they’re going anywhere anytime soon. They still have that great timeless quality to them.
Whichever one we go with, I can’t wait to make our carpet look not so lonely.
Do you have a favorite? Which one would you choose? Or should we just stop the rug fashion show and go back to singing into our hairbrushes? I’m cool with that too.
