A Soft Place to Land, My Rug Search for Project: #1Room30Days

Hi Friends, if you follow me on Instagram you may remember me complaining about how bad I am at choosing rugs (and window treatments, for that matter).  There’s just something about them that seem so, so . . . permanent.  So, when it came to choosing a rug for my master bedroom refresh, it was no different.

Rug #1:  Safavieh Wool Rug, silver

I ordered this rug from Target before Project: #1room30days began.


I tried it out and it didn’t take long for me to realize that I didn’t love it.

The pattern was a little too busy for the look I was going for, and seemed a little more formal than I had hoped for.

Rug #2:  Woven rug from Target:

Area Rug Cool Natural 5'X7'- Threshold™
I loved the color and texture of this rug, but quickly realized that it wasn’t going to work.  It was a 5×7 and I needed at least a 6×9 to fit under my queen bed.  I searched online, and unfortunately they don’t carry this particular rug in a larger size, such a bummer!

 Rug #3: Martha Stewart Jute Fringe Runner


At this point I got desperate! After having searched Home Depot, Target, Walmart, and Tj Maxx, I wandered into Homegoods and picked up 2 small, fringed, jute runners to place on either side of the bed.

I liked this look a lot, the color and texture was perfect and it gave the room a more relaxed feel.  But, I got kinda used to the idea of having a large rug to anchor the bed.

Rug #4:  Nuloom Handmade Eco Natural Fiber Chunky Loop Jute Rug

I ultimately decided to order a larger version of the jute rug, and was able to get a pretty good deal.  WooHoo!  I ordered it from Overstock and received it in 2 days!

In addition to finally choosing a rug, in the past week I was able to paint my closet doors, put up new shades, paint my nightstands, and makeover my hubby’s lamp!  I feel like I’ve made pretty good progress so far!

Still to Do:

  • Gallery wall and other wall art
  • Accessorize
  • Decide on baskets for storage
  • Decide on mirror above dresser
  • Lightly organize drawers and closet
