Beautiful rooms come to those who wait.

Dec 28th, 2012

My girls’ room has been a work in progress for ahem, three years. But, lately we’ve got our butts in gear and started making progress. I painted the plaid walls, upholstered the headboards, and FINALLY found an affordable rug.

I’m a little picky with rugs because quality in a rug is a big deal to me. I don’t want a rug that will start to curl up on the edges, and I don’t suggest that anyone else buy a “cheap” rug either. I think a high grade rug is the only way to go, and finding a rug that is affordable and high quality is pretty dang hard.

Cyber Monday brought an INCREDIBLE sale at RugsUSA, and I had such a busy day that I almost shrugged it off. But that night I started to browse the 75% off rugs while I was sitting in bed, and I realized that I could NOT waste this opportunity. I about died at the good prices. {And NO, I do not have a relationship with them}. But, I will not hesitate to shout their sales from the rooftops now that I realize what a great deal I got.

This rug is. the. perfect. rug. The end.

And I NEVER would have bought it at full price. I’m just too cheap, and let’s face it, hardly anyone can afford to spend almost $1000 on a rug {I know I can’t}. But a $736 rug turns into $184 at 75% off. PLUS they offered FREE SHIPPING!
I know there are skeptical folks out there, so I had to prove it {look at the order confirmation below}. The rug I chose for the girls’ room was the Moroccan Trellis in Bubble-gum. rugsusaAnd actually, I’m pretty ticked at myself that I didn’t buy more rugs that day. I am thrilled with the quality too. I was worried. I had never bought anything from RugsUSA before, but I took the risk because of the killer price.

Here is the room without the rug. You can’t deny it. It was meant for their room. girls room paint ideas a

  1. woooww – that is one adorable room! love the rug too :o)

  2. Beautiful! Suggestion… how would it look tilted towards the right away from the desk? Angles in super symmetrical rooms sometimes have a huge design impact. Just saying…..

  3. LOVE the room. I really like your color choices. Thanks for pointing me to the rug site. I went straight to the clearance section and they have rugs currently at 65% off! ;)

  4. Yes, yes that rug was meant for that room! It's so cozy and dreamy! I'm swooning over here. Happy new year!


  5. the rug is meant for you, it even matches the background on your blog … just different color. Really brightens the room vs. the brown carpet.

  6. It looks like you designed the rug. It's perfect for the room!

  7. I can't believe how much bigger it makes the room look! Love bargains – thanks for passing on the news of where to find a great deal!!

  8. Oh wow! It really makes an impact!

  11. Love the room, love the rug and love your new blog header!!!!

  12. Perfect and beautiful!

  13. Gorgeous room and rug.

  18. Good job, good choice. I love it.

  19. That rug really is perfection in that room. And the price? Even more perfect.

  20. I took advantage of the 75% off sale too. It was crazy! I found the perfect rug for our eat in kitchen. I'm mad too that I didn't buy more. The quality was great too. The shipping took a while, but it was worth it!
    Glad you found such a great rug!

  21. Ooo I love love LOVE it! It totally makes the room. :)

    Also… LOVE your new blog header too!

  22. I LOVE IT! I wish my daughter liked girly stuff like this!! I would totally use it as inspiration.

    I love that room! After reading this post I went to check out their site and found they are currently having a 65% off sale. I bought myself a beautiful new rug for my living room and can't wait until it arrives!!

  24. What a beautiful rug…and such an awesome price! I'll have to check them out.

  25. Thanks for sharing! I totally just clicked over and ordered myself a super large, super cute new rug for my home office make-over. So happy that it was so easy and so reasonably priced! Can't wait to show it off when I start to get my blog really up and running (yes, I've been lazily not posting very much), and share my "makeover"! :)

  26. Oh Brooke!This rug is AMAZING in your girls' room! In fact, I think it would be perfect in my little one's room too so, I just got one! They are still having a great sale (65% off) though not as great as the deal you got. Still, I love it and am so thankful to you for sharing the link! I've been hoping to find something like this and am so happy to finally check that off my list! I ordered a rug for my bedroom too! At these prices I know I would kick myself later if I didn't! Happy New Year!!!

  27. Oh wow, that rug looks like it was made for your girls' room! So pretty and it does look like good quality, even from your pictures. I can picture them sitting on it playing with their toys or reading a book. Lovely.
    Happy New Year!

    Wow! That is such a cool room! Love the savings on the rug. Made me wish I had known about this myself!

  29. The Yoder's Four says:

    Super in love with everything you've done to the girl's room! The colors are so fresh and that rug is awesome. Congrats on the great deal!!

  30. It's so good to see this rug in a real-life room! It absolutely makes your already beautiful room! I've come so close to ordering from RugsUSA so many times but have never pulled the trigger. Seems like when I find one I like they are always out of the size I need or don't have quite the right color. Not giving up, though! I believe they have a good selection of geometric styles at 65% off right now, through the 7th. Thanks for sharing your great find!

  31. Wow the entire room is beautiful and I love the rug. My girlfriend swears by that site and I have also had good luck with them. You are right, if you wait and watch, you can get a deal of the century on that site. Your walls ,headboard and bedding coordinate perfectly!

  32. Tiffany Siladke says:

    WOW! We need some rugs for our apartment but they all have been too expensive! I am definitely checking out that site, thanks.


  33. Love the room! And the rug! Question- I am considering the rug for my girl's new room. They are 6 and 3- it's a lot of white! :/ Do you think it will be easy to spot clean if needed?

  34. Sarah @ The Blog Guidebook says:

    Love this rug and I purchased one for my daughters' room also…can't wait to get it. I got 65% off and I wish I'd got one for the living room…but…that's okay…

    Do you know if you only get that much off your FIRST purchase? After that it looks like about 35% off…? Just wondered if you had any experience with that.

    Also, I read reviews on the rug that mentioned "pilling"…have you had any trouble with that?

    Thanks for this cute post! Very inspiring!

  35. Love this room! Love the color combination too! You do a wonderful job with the hand painted wall and headboards!! And the rug just ties it all in together!!! Do you do outside jobs???

  36. I love, love, love your girl’s room, it’s adorable! I went to the RugsUSA website and they are having another sale but this time it’s 80% off with free shipping! I ordered a new rug for my living room just now! :o)
