Hey there! Happy Wednesday everyone! A few weeks ago when I showed you my new-to-me green lamps in the entry, I mentioned that I was hunting for a new rug for the space, and that I might have stumbled across one.
Well, I happened upon the right sale at the right time at RugsUSA and picked a winner!
I bought this rug (now sold out although maybe it was in a different lot or something because I've seen the same rug under a different name) and I think I'm in love. Stripes+bold colors+graphic pattern...what's not to like? (Although I know my friend Pat will say this would make her dizzy...sorry Pat!)
Although it's navy, I took a chance because it looked really dark on the screen. It IS dark, but still noticeably blue. The front corner of the photo below is a good representation of the true color.
I'm not sure how I feel about that mix in here, but it's growing on me. And, I was sure that if I didn't think it was a good fit in the entry, that I would use it in my bedroom. So, it may be moving in the future. All of that white by the front door makes me a little nervous.
So, although I love this one, it may not be in it's forever home. I'll still have my eye open for something else for this spot if I move it elsewhere.
I was a little nervous about buying a rug online, but since I knew I had a back-up spot for this to go I didn't worry. Although RugsUSA has a good return policy, I didn't want the hassle of sending it back if I didn't like it (I don't believe they pay return shipping).
One thing I have noticed on their site, it's really hard to find good larger rugs that are a TRUE black and white or cream. Most of them are charcoal, which reviewers say tend to have a blue-ish tint. They truly have the best prices when you catch a good sale, but when you're looking for something as specific as I am the search can be tricky! I'm still on the hunt for a few other rugs, so I'm still looking at options.
I'm happy for now, though, this one will work!
**By the way...this isn't a sponsored post, just passing along my thoughts about my new purchase!
