Revamp Your Home With A Rug
(This is a sponsored post in association with Wayfair. All views are my own!)
Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well!
As you may remember, I had a bit of a disaster back in the Autumn. My son’s bedroom ceiling decide it no longer wanted to be attached to the very fabric of this house, and came crashing down one Friday night. (Thankfully, he wasn’t in there at the time. Or anyone else for that matter.) I can’t even start to describe the mess – huge chunks of plaster and grit landed on his floor, and a huge billow of dirty grey dust puffed out from his bedroom, and seemed to cover the whole upstairs of the house. Old houses eh? It was a huge clear up operation, and I dutifully stumped up for a new ceiling, and for half his room to be replastered.
The long and short off all this, is that I had to completely redecorate his room, which gave me a chance to update some of the colours and accessories in there. Like the rest of the house, I’ve kept it bright white, but I decided it was time to make it a bit ‘cooler’, with more of a vintage eclectic vibe. Needless to say his old rug was left in a bit of a state after the ceiling came down, so when Wayfair asked me if I’d like to revamp a room with one of their rugs, I put my hand up quicker than a flash. This is a ‘no carpet’ house, as I love the look and feel of whitewashed floorboards so much. However, a good rug finishes a room, and is an absolute must to keep the rooms cosier, especially in these draughty period houses.
It was a very easy decision to make when it came to choosing the perfect rug, and I knew straight away that the Everly rug would look gorgeous. There are already shades of pale green and lime in his room, and I love really mixing modern patterns and pieces with vintage finds. I think this works really beautifully with his existing furniture, and against the whitewash floor. Being hand tufted, it’s also really thick and cosy, perfect for little feet in the colder months. Apparently it also makes a very good place for building Lego, and is usually covered in it!
You can find the Everly Hand tufted rug here. Wayfair have a huge choice of rugs, so there is something for every room and budget.
