Design Dilema

Rug Sources: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
Lately I've been drawn to rugs with geometric patterns. The first rugs I purchased on my own were more traditional. I still love them but want try and work in something a little more daring. I took a small risk earlier when I added the zebra print rug in my kitchen. It was a steal at 19.99 from Target.

I'm thinking I may need to do something a little different in my bedroom

Right now it's pretty traditional. I hate the artwork so that can go, but I do like the bedding. I need reader input! Do you think I can work in a geometric rug? My favorite from the picks I made above is number three. Any suggestions for the room itself? It's a small space but I need to do something because it is just not as interesting as the other rooms I've worked on in my home.

I recovered these chairs

I painted the feature wall

I made the animal print and medallion pillows.

So now it's on to the bedroom...let me know what you think!

(Note to self: You're clearly obsessed with blue... perhaps you should stop telling others that your favorite color is pink?)

I think you were more brave (than the zebra rug) doing that feature wall! Wow! Great job! My latest love interest is the chevron pattern, therefore, rug #1 stole my heart.

I like rug #3. It comes in a beautiful sage color! But truly you really can't go wrong with any of them!

Just found your blog! Love it! So funny, I"m eyeing rug #3 and #6 for my hallway!! Love all your choices.....I'm thinking maybe a darker color rug to ground the room? Looks like you have light walls and accents of pink so maybe a darker color would be a nice contrast??? I'm sure whatever you do, it'll be awesome!

I'm a new follower!!

Love what you've done. Where are the pillows on your bed from? (The printed pillows)
