Area rugs has been in style for long, and while I don’t see the wall-to-wall rug happing again anytime soon, I do love the sensation of stepping on a rug, especially with the colder months coming closer and closer. Kilims, wool & silk, and other rug varieties are becoming more and more accessible, simple to clean, and will pretty much live up any room. I love them in living rooms, but I do think they are just a perfect fit for the bedroom. It will just make getting out of bed so much easier.
Besides the obvious softness factor, it is a very easy way to add color in your home, without having to spend the weekend painting. And if your rental, like mine, suffers from boring, easily scratched floors a rug seems like exactly what you need.
