If you follow me on Instagram you are most familiar with the constant happenings over here in the Moysa household. The newest one being some changes in our main bedroom. So often the primary bedroom in a home is overlooked, but I have always been a firm believer that it deserves attention. Most recently I have felt a pull towards more earthy tones beyond my usual wood tones in my home. I wanted to create a cozy, welcoming and cool vibe in our bedroom and I truly think we are headed in that direction.
To do this I started with our new “plaster” accent wall that I mentioned in my last post. From there I knew I wanted to incorporate the most perfect vintage rug and that’s why I have partnered with my favorite vintage rug source; Revival Rugs. Revival Rugs has an extensive inventory of all different types of vintage rugs along with new rugs and their new furniture/accessories line. They are a go-to for me with clients all the time.
The rug I chose had the exact colors I was hoping for; a cream base, burnt oranges, hints of gray and green. It was made to be in my room. Most of you know, our home is very small, so my rug selection had to be dependent on working with the other rugs in my home. I thought I’d walk you through how I knew this rug would work with what I already have.
In my living room I have another Revival Rugs that has a varied stripe pattern. The scale of the stripes are large with lots of neutral base color showing, so I knew for our bedroom (which is seen from the living room) it needed a rug that had a smaller scaled pattern, so that they wouldn’t compete. The colors also need to work well with each other, in this case my striped rug was so neutral that I wouldn’t have an issue there.
When I started my search I made sure to look at the properly sized rugs first, in this case I needed something around the 6’x9′ size. I made sure not to exclude any particular type of rug from the start. They have beautiful Turkish rugs among their vintage rugs. I wasn’t set on a type of rug, but know, you can search their site using many filters, so that your search is modified.
I made sure to take advantage of their “view in your room” option, so that I could really see how the scale would work with my existing furnishings.
If you can believe it, the image above is what you get from using this amazing tool on their website. Just seeing the rug in my space made it clear it was the winner.
Now I have a gorgeous rug with years and years of history giving our room the perfect cozy vibe I wanted. You won’t be disappointed spending some time cruising through the Revival Rugs website. Be sure to use BRIMOYSA10 for 10% off your order.
