Home DecorNew Persian Rug for the Master Bath April 12, 2016 When designing the master bath, I really hoped to use a rug we already had. We had these two extras that didn’t have a home yet in this house. I love each of them and posted this shot recently to get your votes. The red overwhelmingly won, which was my favorite for sure! I thought the rest of the room would come together quickly after picking the rug, but the more I tried to figure out the rest of the colors, it just didn’t seem right. This room design turned out so much more neutral than I initially pictured (you can read about those changes here). While I’m loving the room, I have really struggled with the lack of color. I also initially pictured a long runner that went from vanity to vanity. I really wasn’t planning to get a new one, but as I was searching for a new rug for the master bedroom design I’m working on, I came across one that I knew would be perfect in here. I got it from the same seller as the bedroom rug. They really have the best rugs for such great prices. I got this one for $220, which I was really pleased with for the unique pattern and colors and size. This rug is 2’9″ wide, which is one inch smaller than the width I had to work with – perfect! It’s 10’3″ long, so it spans vanity to vanity just as I’d hoped. What I love most are the colors in this beauty. It has so many touches of bright colors in it, but they aren’t overpowering. The colors really brighten up this room more than the last two options did. Now when I look in the room, it feels just right. The mirrors and lights still have to be painted, but I don’t miss the color I’d planned because I have it subtly in the rug. A lot of people have suggested that I not paint the mirrors and leave them wood, but they aren’t wood. They’re painted a chippy burgundy color (you can read more about them here). I still haven’t decided exactly what color the lights and mirrors will be. My goal is to get the office/playroom done for Monday’s big reveal and then get on finishing this room. It’s oh so close! I have a lot of options for the mirror color that are found in the rug, so I’ll have to spend some time in there studying the rug and the room. I love the overall impact this large, statement rug has and finally, this room feels right. And I love it against the floors. We’re almost there, y’all! I think the view from the bedroom might be the best part.
