Our house was dated when we moved in. When the time came for The Divine Miss M and The Beauty Queen to have their own room, they each were able to select their own colors. The Divine Miss M went with teals and The Beauty Queen opted for a purple and sand two tone. Either one would have been a welcome considering the room The Beauty Queen occupied was Daisy Kingdom and pepto bismol pink, accented by the 1970s sponge paint method.
It needed change. It needed an update. Most of all, the pink had to go.
Once we had it painted, it seemed it needed something to pull it together. Rugs USA offers a solution with rugs bold and colorful to more subtle and solid. The Beauty Queen and I looked through their site and played with a lot of different ideas. We talked about her vision for her room. It is still a work in progress, needing trip between the color break, a window treatment and wall decor and so we took it all into consideration.
The Beauty Queen has different ideas for accent so she opted to stick with the purple theme. Her final choice was the 5’x8′ Couture Simplicity Purple Rug.
Aside from the color, The Beauty Queen LOVED the decorative edges. It’s a fun pattern that would add some contrast to the rather simple room.
The day it arrived we rolled it out and there was giddiness. Everyone walked all over it exclaiming how plush and soft it was. The kiddos rolled around on it and sighed with enjoyment.
The decorative accented edges really make a statement.
I was initially concerned the edges would fold and curl, but with a ton of kiddo traffic, vacuuming and more, the edges remain in tact and don’t curl in the slightest!
Area rugs add so much to a room. This room is a gathering place for my children now. It is a place The Beauty Queen can retreat to when she needs her own space.
As the mom, I am loving this rug. It is hand tufted adn 100% Wool so I know it will last a lifetime. It is from India, known for their high quality and beautiful rugs. It requires minimal care–vacuum regularly, avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight and blotting spills immediately.
We are still playing with the layout of the room, but the change is dramatic.
It makes a great statement in the space. We absolutely LOVE this rug and the difference it has made in the room!
