For the LOVE of Rugs!

If you haven't heard yet . . .  CT and I are in the process of purchasing our first home. (I guess you call it purchasing even though we are really just loaning it from the bank) That's if the sellers can get their act together ... but that's a story for another day. Anyways, it has been so overwhelming and exciting trying to come up with color schemes, decor options and deciding on furnishings. 

The living room is the one area in our new home that I'm having the most difficulties making decisions on. It's the first room anyone coming into our home will walk into, it's the room where most of my time will be spent and it's just the hub of our home. Decorating this room is a huge decision and obviously one I don't take lightly. 

A few things that I've made decisions on so far:
1. Color scheme: Grey, White, with Emerald & Black Accents
2. Walls - Light Grey 
(still need to decide on accent wall which will be the color of our kitchen. Right now I'm leaning towards a light green.) 
3. Small sectional in front of our fireplace 
4. Kingston's former changing table by our stairs
5. Our watercolor portrait as the focal point when you walk in

Fortunately, we have wood flooring throughout the majority of the house, so I knew from the beginning that I wanted a fun rug in the living room. I'm still looking for one that 'speaks' to me without breaking the bank. I know if I could just decide on something, it would easily make the rest of the room come together. 

Here are a few that I've thought could possibly play the part. 

Bouvardia Crewelwork Rug from Anthropologie

(This is seriously amazing and on sale... but still $480 - which CT would never go for!)

Frontier Juniper/Winter White Zig Zag Rug from Wayfair
(If only I didn't have a chevron rug in King's room and chevron bed sheets ...)

Safavieh Retro Black/Light Grey from Wayfair
(Because we are totes a black and white family)

Marrakesh Shag Grey Rug from RugsUSA
(I love the texture of this but I feel like white couches is a must with it - which I'm not so sure I want to do.)

Couture Magnolia Grey Rug from RugsUSA
(This one is only $99 which makes me love it even more!)

Pantone Prismatic Watercolor Rug from Target
(My decor options would be endless if this was my rug. Plus it matches our painting perfect!)

So ... as you can see there are many different options I like and I don't really have any one distinct style. My mind is going in 6 different directions and it's time I finally decide on one. 

Help a sista out - which is your fave?

  1. I really like the last two! But I also love the ikat chevron one!!

  2. I'm between the Pantone colorful one and the retro black/light gray!
