I am definitely in a nesting state of mind… I want to redecorate every room in the house! One room I have not gotten to give some pizzazz to is my son’s bedroom. Due to us not knowing his gender when he was born, we kept the room fairly neutral. And then it just stayed that way.

I think now is a good time to add bold color and accents to personalize his space! Of course, getting a new rug is perfect because it’s fast, easy, and if it doesn’t work out, you can always find another home for it!

We had this super-large plain beige rug covering the majority of his bedroom floor. It was great for a soft footing when he was small, but didn’t add to the decor.

After we received our new 5×8′ Canvas Outer Limits area rug from Mohawk Home and installed it (less than 30 minutes!), we were shocked at the difference! Not only did having a smaller rug really open up the space, revealing the honey-tones of the hardwood beneath, but the colors in the rug pop! I think it goes well with the dark espresso furniture!

I love the thickness of this rug, and it has interesting texture spots throughout. My son LOVES jumping from circle to circle and even likes to sit inside the big circle and read books! The rich coloring allows me to go in any decor direction… although the rug has a more mature style, I’ll play up the light blues in the rest of the room for a little boy look!

    The rug looks wonderful in your room. Brightens up everything. We need a new rug for the living room or for the dining room we have bare hardwood floors in there.

    We are moving to a new home at the end of the month, and area rugs are at the top of my list of things to buy. The entire main floor is hardwood, which I love! But we don’t have any area rugs currently. I’ll definitely be checking out Mohawk. Thanks for the tip!

    Ack! I clicked “enter” before I “liked” the post. Now how do I “like” it?

    Wow that really changed the feel of the room. Plus with the darker colors you won’t have to worry about spills so much! Is your son starting to drink from cups without lids? Our daughter loves to drink from bottles, so we have some mini ones for her so that when she does spill it’s not so much.

    I love what the rug does to the room! Amazing! ;o)

  • Christine A. February 8, 2012, 9:44 am

    What a difference that rug made, plus it is easier to camoflauge the messes.

  • Trisha W. February 8, 2012, 9:42 am

    I love the mini chair and foot stool. I want one of those things every time I see them. Unfortunately, with seven kiddos there really isn’t room for such cool stuff.
