Hey, pretty blue rug …

blue overdyed rug

Yesterday, I got a couple emails about the rug that you couldn’t really see too well in the post, so I figured I’d feature it. Give it a little shout out, tell you a little story about said rug.

We knew we wanted something that was not crazy graphic and no bold patterns — not that I don’t like them, but if you want your bedroom to remain calm, you want to avoid big high contrast patterns. So we started looking at solids and simply couldn’t find the color we wanted; they were either too dark so they looked black, or baby blue. In a perfect world we would find an antique traditional Persian rug that was all worn and muted and beautiful but those run around $2500 for an 8′ x 10′ and that doesn’t include the time it takes to find them. So when I stumbled up on this rug I knew it would work.

NOW, listen up, folks. I do not like all over-dyed rugs — no, I don’t. It’s a massive trend right now that is definitely at a backlash point. Don’t go out and buy yourself 10 cheap hot pink or lime green over-dyed rugs. But when they are done right they are really pretty and soft and textural. You get the integrity of a handmade wool traditional rug but in the color that you want. I like it when you just get a hint of the pattern so it looks like a texture rather than a pattern, like this one. And make sure you get a color that you can live with, like this blue, totally beautiful.

When everything is new and bright, the age of the rug becomes the grounding piece in the room that has integrity. Kinda like your cool grandpa that wears leather elbow patches and has worn the same watch for 40 years.

This rug is $1,046 as an 8′ x 10′ and you can get your paws on it HERE. And Lulu And Georgia has been nice enough to extend a 20 percent discount on THEIR WHOLE SITE ’til this Friday for just you Emily readers. Just enter Emily20 as a coupon code and clean up.

    If I wasn’t leaving for Brimfield tomorrow to shop up a storm for several days I’d be all over that rug and discount. I did my bedroom in the same colors as this bedroom makeover and love it so much. I’ve been looking for a teal rug for under the bed. Darn you timing!!

  3. Thanks so much for featuring our rug Emily! It really did work beautifully in that space!

    OMG i scouted that website yesterday after you plugged that rug. THANK YOU EMILY!!!!

    Love this rug. Need it. Want it!

    For Lulu: is the canals rug more like flatweave or a tufted rug? Meaning, I often find that flatweaves wrinkle or kick up when you walk on them or vacumn, versus tufted rugs do not.

    such a pretty room, and a pretty rug. Thanks for all the design goodness you share. Love it!

    Love this…I’m doing the same palette in our guest room. Can you share the paint color? Thanks!

  9. deb

    Wow! Disregard my recent request for paint color. I just saw a more detailed post on this. Cannot believe that I chose Benjamin Moore’s GRAY OWL for this bedroom only to find out that it’s featured here!!!! Guess I’m on track and ready to paint (or rather, hubby is)!!! Thanks again!

  10. You mention the subtlety of color in some overdyed rugs, as in this lovely example. But interestingly enough, they also can fill a need at the opposite end of the spectrum – when you’re looking for really saturated colors, yet in a traditional pattern. With so many bright accent colors in style now, I find that most mass-produced Oriental rugs are too muted and washed-out. Or only available in a limited color range. So when it’s in the budget, I love a vibrant, rich overdyed rug, like some I’ve seen on 1 800 get a rug and other sites.

    I’m so sorry if you’ve already answered this, but white is the paint color for your white walls?

  12. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing issues with your website. It appears like some of the text on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thank you
