I don't know what my problem is, but I have the hardest time picking out area rugs! Maybe it's because it takes up so much space that I'm worried if I choose the wrong one it will mess up the whole room.
I ordered these curtains and this rug from Crate and Barrel because they looked awesome next to each other in the catalog. But when I got them home the green-ish/yellow-ish color in the rug doesn't quite match the curtains. I also feel like the patterns don't look great together. I love the curtains, but I'm thinking the rug will have to be returned.
What do you think? No dice, right?
The problem is I have no idea what kind of rug to replace it with. I'm thinking maybe a patterned one with only one color? Or should I just do a solid color with no pattern? Or a gray-ish one with a pattern? Ahhh... I'm so confused! (FYI there will be a desk in the center of the room on top of the rug. The built ins will come out to the blue tape line on the floor to the right, and there will be a chair in the left corner near where the curtain is).
I made this inspiration board to kind of get my thoughts together. You can't tell here, but I actually have about six rugs on top of each other in this file. I'm a lost cause. :/
So what do you think? Should I go patterned or solid? Color or gray? Do you think it should be a little big bigger than the one I have now?
Thanks for your advice!
