UncategorizedWhy Every Bedroom Should have a Moroccan Shag Rug May 5, 2014This post is sponsored by Rugs USA. All opinions and wording are 100% my own. Y’all. Our new bedroom rug is blowing my mind! I love it so much it had to have it’s own post. To see our master bedroom reveal, click here. When I started planning this design several months ago, I knew that the quilt would be my inspiration. I love eclectic, mixed patterns, so I wanted a patterned rug that coordinated, preferably in blues and greens. My goals in finding a bedroom rug were comfort and style. Out of all of the options I searched for, nothing fir the bill like this Moroccan Shag Rug, though it took me a bit to find. I started looking at over-dyed kilims. I love the look of them and really thought they’d be beautiful in here. Rugs USA has some gorgeous ones that I was so torn between (you can see them here). All of the ones I was drawn to for this design were dark blue or green. They were so lovely, but I just felt like they were going to blend in with the dark floor and not provide the contrast I was looking for in this particular project. So I started exploring other options. I know, it’s blasphemy for me to buy anything other than kilim. But I quickly stumbled upon the Savannah Moroccan Diamonds Shag Rug. I was immediately in love with it. The white background gave me the lightness I was hoping for. But the blue diamonds and braided tassels gave it the pattern and style I wanted. Perfect combination. I thought I loved it online, but after putting it in our bedroom, I can’t imagine having anything else. Even my husband is in love with this rug! After living with it for a month, there are two reasons why Moroccan Shag Rugs are the PERFECT addition to a master bedroom and why I may never have anything else. 1.) Shaggy Comfort I literally just want to stand barefoot on this rug all day. Not a productive use of time, I know, but it is that comfortable. It feels so luxurious and relaxing having this type of rug in the bedroom. It’s 100% wool, so it’s really soft and cozy. I knew shag rugs were comfortable, so this wasn’t a huge surprise. But it is way more comfortable and cozy than I expected. The comfort of them always appealed to me, but this pattern lover never liked the look of a plain shag rug. In comes reason number 2. 2.) Style The Moroccan aspects of this rug give it serious style. I love the diamond pattern and how it contrasts with the other patterns in the room. And those braided tassels make me so happy. They’re about four inches long on each end, so much longer than a normal rug tassel. They are such a fun feature! And it’s hand-knotted, so it has a really great look and texture. I am convinced after having this rug that every single master bedroom needs one! Rugs USA has some different variations on this style, many of which are neutral, so they’d go with any decor! I do love my blue, though. It is the perfect balance of luxurious comfort and serious style. I could not be happier with this choice!
