Colorful master bedroom refresh

May 11, 2021

Hello my friends! I've always said paint is the number one way to make a big impact in a room for the least amount of money, but fabric or textiles are a very close second. Drapes, bedding and rugs can add color or texture and will go a long way to making a room look a lot different. 

My latest addition to our bedroom did just that! Last summer I added some finishing touches to our master that really lightened it up, but still left it feeling super cozy:

We love the dark gray walls combined with the lighter grasscloth wallpaper -- it's such a cozy space!

The bedding helped to lighten things up, but lately I've been craving some more color in here. Plus, even though we don't wear shoes in the house much, the rug got dirty so easily. 

I knew pink or coral tones would look so good with the darker accents in here, so I did some looking around online and found this colorful option (the Loloi Skye in sea/rust) that looked perfect:

But I kept hesitating -- it was a lot of color for me! I kept going back to it over and over though. 

This is the same brand as our family room rug. Loloi is a higher end brand and usually expensive, but these are from their Loloi II line and are much less. There's a reason they're so inexpensive, and I'll touch on that in just a bit. 

After going back to this one over and over, I finally ordered it late last year. When it was delivered it was even more colorful in person...and I hesitated again. 😂 It sat wrapped up for a couple weeks before I rolled it out. 

Thankfully I absolutely LOVED it once it was unrolled in the room. The design, the colors, it's all so lovely:

You can see it's definitely more vibrant in person.

The one caveat with this rug is that it doesn't have any fibers or texture like a traditional rug. It's really just printed, kind of like a mat:

I wasn't sure how I felt about that at first, but once we got it down I REALLY loved it. You have to get really close to it to see that it's not a woven rug. 

It's really not much different than the rug we have in the family room:

I didn't notice it as much with that one for some reason.

So far it wears as well or better than a regular rug:

I got the 7x9 size and it was a bit smaller than our last one. Turns out it's the perfect size for our bed (king sized) and the room:

The rug itself is soft, but thin. It doesn't feel thick underfoot like a regular one. A rug pad would help that a lot! We don't mind that it's not cushy. 

It hides everything though, and has held up really well. We have one of these rugs in our kitchen and I've even thrown it in the washer to clean it! 😮 I wouldn't recommend doing that often, but it held up great!

There are a TON of different colorways and designs available -- from more neutral to colorful.

  1. I bet this type of rug would be great in a dining room. No fibers to catch crumbs and easy to slide chairs in and out. hmmmm

  2. Much prefer this rug in the bedroom, it just ties everything together, looks just lovely! :-) The size is perfect also.

  3. I have a Loloi II rug in two bathrooms and our master bedroom. I think they're the best kept secret! They're gorgeous, vacuum beautifully, and look brand new after many months of use in high traffic areas. LOVE them.

  4. I love how this looks in the bedroom and agree with comment of how well it would work in the dining room! Will check out!

  5. Looks great. There's color, but it's muted. It's just enough.

  6. We bought ruggable rugs for our new house and love them. They arent perfect because they're thin but with pets, they're a lifesaver. I just throw them in the wash and they come out looking brand new. For anyone hesitating, get a ruggable rug. I have 13 in our house and it's the only brand I'll ever buy.
