I really love my jute rugs.
Love the texture, love the color, love the simplicity – what’s not to love about a jute rug? They’re very loveable.
I’ve been feeling the pull for something with more pattern lately.
I know, right? Who would have thought.
The dining room seemed like a good place to start, so I decided to give a wool rug I had in the basement a test drive to see how I like it. That way – even though this particular rug isn’t exactly what I had in mind – I can see if something with more color and/or pattern is something I may want to keep around for the long term.
So I took some time last weekend, and after a good hour of moving, rolling, hauling, unrolling, and walking into the chandelier over and over again, I finally got that wool rug down and the table back in place.
The colors are kind of perfect for the fall season – warm, rich and exceptionally cozy. It definitely encouraged me to add a few more fall sprinkles around the room.
And a pumpkin or two…
While I’m still not completely sold on a patterned rug (at least not one this bold), I do kind of love the idea of getting a larger jute or sisal rug and then layering a smaller patterned rug on top of it – then I can have the freedom to switch and swap as much as my little heart desires.
What do you think about the bolder rug for this room?
