The last update I did to our master bedroom was in 2016 with a few small accessory changes over the years (click here to see the most recent "before"). If you know me, three years is quite a while for nothing to change. I decided I just wanted to swap out the rug for Spring, and we all know better than that... of course that snowballed into a mini refresh.
When I update a space and want to stay on a strict budget, I always pick one main item that will have the most impact and consume the largest part of my budget and then I change a few small items from there. Once I decide what that item will be, I begin shopping my home for as much as I can and then I shop for sales and bargains at local retailers.
Other than the Mohawk Home Emiko area rug - the only other new items I added that weren't already in my home were:
I was having a hard time choosing between three different rug styles. I really wanted to go a little outside my box and add more color to our bedroom, but also didn't want to regret my decision in a month - so I opened up voting to my Instagram audience. The Mohawk Prismatic Emiko Vintage won by a lanslide with my followers. I mulled it over for a few days, put together a mood board and ultimately ended up playing it safe because this one was truly the best option long term.
I love that the colors are soft but distinct. My husband loves that it's a lot more plush than any other rug we've had in here. For the first several nights he kept commenting on how soft it was to walk on - LOL. It's always a bonus when the husband approves!
It's fun to see what impact you can make on a space when you're ready for a change without breaking the bank.
