Rugs are a brilliant way to enliven any room and if you choose a large rug, they can make a really dramatic statement. Rugs are also especially practical as they are warm and cosy underfoot regardless of your main floor finish, something that’s especially important now just as the nights are drawing in and you can feel that slight nip around the ankles.
As I refuse to give into the cooler seasons without a fight and I’m still largely padding around indoors, in bare feet, I love the fact that rugs feel super soft and plush to walk on.
In the same way that changing cushions and other soft furnishings in a room, rugs can instantly add colour and allow you to change the look and feel of a room without the expense of a major room revamp. I’ve collected a few rugs over the years, as you do! A couple are currently ‘resting’, rolled up and ready to go when I’m ready for a bit of a room refresh.
Oversized Statement Rugs
I love large statement rugs particularly colour pop ones and anything that makes me smile, the two rugs below fit the bill perfectly.
I could really see myself sitting having a coffee at this table below whilst gazing down at this amazing rug. You could almost imagine that you’re out in the countryside amidst a cottage garden meadow, what a wonderful way to unwind.
This hedgehog rug’s quirky cuteness must surely raise a smile from anyone, and would fit equally well in a living room or bedroom. I love the fact that it’s a busy rug, but due to it’s pared down colour scheme, it would work equally well in a minimalist setting.
A bedside rug is fantastically warm and lush feeling underfoot. It can also add dramatic pops of colour to an understated colour scheme. This bedroom, for example has eau de nil wallpaper, pale blonde wooden floorboards and white bedding and curtains. Add a dash of hot pink accessories including the rug and the room is instantly transformed.
Kids Bedroom Rugs
A rug is a perfect addition to any kid’s bedroom, adding a cosy snuggly space to play and have adventures. This around the world rug below will certainly set them off on their imaginary travels.
Whilst this colour pop owl rug fits beautifully into this bird and nature themed bedroom. Perfect for both day and night owls!
