Our Master Bedroom Moodboard and Wishlist

Choosing the Right Rug for Your Space
Reading Time: 3 minutes
This post is in partnership with Revival Rugs who very kindly compensated this restored vintage rug for our master bedroom. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the companies that support She Saw Style.

The right rug can be hard to find, but I always believe it should be the first item in a new space. It sets the mood for the decor!

I honestly thought I knew what I wanted our master bedroom to look and feel like – until I saw this rug on the Revival Rugs website! Brandon and I spent probably an hour looking through rug after rug until we decided on the teal and turquoise restored vintage rug, titled the “Jerick.” I’d love to link it for you to purchase for yourself, however, since these are vintage rugs, there is only one of each! Honestly, I think that’s pretty cool, because it means you’re getting a rug that no one else owns, so it’s unique to you and your space.

After deciding on this beautiful rug, we (*ahem*) I got to work, looking for the pieces to make our space exactly the way we like – modern bohemian. This was the exact vibe we worked towards in our living room, and we love how that turned out. It didn’t come as too much of a surprise that our eyes were drawn to the teal/blue colors again and that we wanted to bring a similar atmosphere to our bedroom. You know what they say, these tones are the most relaxing and inviting! It’s no wonder we want them flowing throughout our home.

Now that we have the right rug, we can move forward with the decoration process.

I’ve put together an entire moodboard, focusing on the items we have on our master bedroom wishlist, and bringing in all the right colors and textures for this space. We don’t have a huge room, but the “Jerick” from Revival Rugs sure made it feel more spacious with all its stunning vibrancy. It’s the first thing that catches your eye when you walk up our stairs towards the room, and I love that about it.

We already had a couple of furniture pieces picked out, and we probably won’t change too much about the bed, aside from adding colored pillows and maybe a throw blanket. The real additions will be artwork (hoping to hang wedding photos above the bed and our wood wedding signs above the television), curtains, and goodness knows I’d love an armchair in the corner to snuggle up in when I want to read!

      Right? I’m all for good color in a room. I can’t handle just all white spaces – even though minimal style is GORGEOUS. I just gotta have the fun tones!

      It can be challenging to find the perfect thing to add to a space. But I HIGHLY recommend Revival Rugs. Their vintage restored rug guarantees that no one else will have the exact same rug as you – which is super cool, in my opinion!

      Oh goodness I LOVE good wood floors. If I had the option, I’d definitely have more of them in our home. However, we’re in a townhouse right now so there’s not much we can do as far as the sand-toned carpet goes. So that’s why we opt for vibrant rugs to bring life to the space!

    I am DYING to get my hand on some gorgeous rugs! As we’re currently renting, we’re stuck with a very ugly looking carpet, and I know a good rug would help hide that fact. I love the pop of colour your bright blue rug adds to the room, that’s exactly what I need in my house! 😍

      Same here! We’re in a townhome, so our entire house is washed in beige carpeting and sandy-colored walls. I knew I HAD to have more color, so rugs were the way to go. Our living room also has a super vibrant rug – and man, they’re just serious mood-boosters!

      I can see how you’d love a more neutral rug. Our whole home is so washed in tan/beige colors that I HAD to have more color or I think I may have just collapsed with boredom in my space haha. These cheery colors just make me so much happier!

    Yes to all of this! I’ve been thinking about getting a rug for my space but I’m not sure I like the idea of it covering my hardwood floor, plus like you said, it really sets the mood for the rest of the decor and I’m not ready for that mood to change if that makes sense?

      That 100% makes sense! You don’t always have to do a giant rug! Revival Rugs offer different sizes, and we even looked into getting a small one for our kitchen 🙂 You certainly don’t have to cover anything – just add a pop of color or design under a chair or by a table or something. Who knows – maybe you’ll love it!
