I love the look of layered rugs in a room, especially in a nursery. From faux furs to vintage beauties, if done right they can be a showstopper. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite combinations to achieve the look and give you a few reasons why you might also want to try rug layering in your nursery.
We all know a rug defines a specific space. It can give the room an “anchor” that it desperately needs or it can be used to define a small space like a reading or play “zone” in a nursery. Layering rugs will make defining a space that much easier.
If you need to stretch your budget
You may think that if you’re buying two rugs instead of just one, you would be spending more money. Actually though, you can easily spend less. Make your bigger rug your affordable option and then buy a smaller option of that rug that you are obsessing over! That way you get the look you really want and save money. A few of my favorite places to find big affordable rugs are RugsUSA, CB2, Wayfair, Joss and Main, Overstock, and Amazon. Splurge rugs- Lulu & Georgia, One Kings Lane, Serena and Lily, and Caitlin Wilson Design.
Layered rugs are the perfect way to add in texture. If you’ve ever looked at a room and wondered, why is this room so chic? It’s likely due to all the extra layers of pattern and texture the room has. Layered rugs will help you achieve this look and give your nursery that “designer feel.”
Gives the room Personality and Fun Element
Nurseries and Kid’s Rooms should have personality and whimsical details. Big fluffy sheepskins or unique patterned rugs are a great way to give the nursery a pop of fun. Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns just remember to keep things coordinated. OR do a complete juxtaposition of two rugs, like a black and white stripe paired with a blush pink floral. The mix of the two will give your room interest.
Easy way to try out Trends without over-commiting
I think one of my favorite reasons to layer rugs is to try out a “trend” before making a big purchase. If you’re anything like me, you might absolutely love something one month and then be over the next. Layering rugs gives you the perfect excuse to pick out that on trend rug and layer it over a tried and true neutral rug to see if you really want to take the big leap and buy that 8 X10 for the room.
Here are a few rug layering combinations that would look great in a nursery!
