Dear loyal blog readers (and mostly lurkers…I see you’ve been here, but you stay eerily quiet), I need your help! I can’t decide on a rug for the nursery and every time I make a decision, the Hubs just knocks it back down. I would like to think that I have a vision that he just doesn’t see, but he could be totally right in the end. So if you could give me your opinion, that would really help me out a ton.
First, here’s the nursery as is…
The decor is pretty plain and will mostly remain that way, with the exception of a yellow blanket on the crib (white sheet) and a very colorful abstract painting above the crib, similar to this one here:
This means that the rug can either be colorful and patterned to bring an extra pop to the room, or kinda plain. I could go both ways here. Rugs are expensive and I don’t want to spend the money on something ridiculous looking. One last thing before I show you my choices – I want the rug to be round, because of all of the angles and hard edges in the room. So here they are, starting with my most favorite of the moment (it changes every day):
The pattern in this rug not only appeals to me on an aesthetic level, but it just screams “boy.” I also LOVE the price. Cannot beat that for a 5 foot rug.
I just found this today. It caught my eye because it has a subtle pattern, is not girly and will bring more of that yellow element into the room.
For a plain rug, I’m a fan of this one. It’s soft and understated and will do a great job of covering up the stains in the carpet. I’m not a huge fan of the price, but that comes with the territory, I suppose.
The price may have something to do with why this one is close to the bottom of my list. I like that the colors don’t pop much, but there’s still a pattern in there to offset the plainness of the room.
I love the price, but is it too plain? It’s definitely soft and fluffy, which I’m sure my little man will love during play time.
Ok, time to cast your vote! Which one will it be? (Geez, I’m spending way too much brain power on this. Just help a girl out, mkay?)
