Traditional

1.26.2012

I have certainly been in nesting overdrive this month. I will probably crash soon. I haven't shown y'all a new rug I purchased for the sitting room in December. The old sisal rug that was in there was a temporary fix until I found the perfect one. The sisal was previously in the dining room and was covered in stains that were hidden pretty well under the furniture in the sitting room when I moved it in there.

I was looking at overstock.com at rugs and came across one with all the colors I was looking for. I was skeptical about ordering it because sometimes the color shows differently on the monitor than it actually is, but this rug had a lot of good reviews. I have bought most of my rugs from overstock. You can't beat having a huge heavy rug shipped for under three dollars and the prices are great.

I am glad this was delivered when Mr. Savvy was home. I don't think I could have handled this by myself.

We moved out the chairs, coffee table, and old rug and added the new non slip rug pad.

I love the colors of this traditional style rug. 

This rug is mostly taupe with beautiful silver blues, sage, maize, brown and red.
It takes on different colors depending on the light coming in.

I just wanted to show you some different shots in different lighting. This rug is by Safivieh and very well made.


This rug was already a great buy and I got an extra discount plus free shipping after Christmas.

Here is a shot of the old rug. The stack of books was hiding a stain.


I think this rug is the perfect match for this room.
Now, it is even cozier.

  4. I love getting rugs delivered...such an easy way to shop. This rug is perfection...you were spot on as always. It's such a generous size too. There's nothing worse than a skimpy rug and I should know because I have made that mistake a time or two. Enjoy!

  5. The love gives a great look to the room, and a bit of a different "vibe" to me. I've looked and looked at rugs on "O" but have never ordered one. I liked hearing your experience. Thanks.

  7. Kim, it could not be a better fit! It is the perfect accent to your already stunning room. (We have a very similar cabinet grouping).

  8. Kim,
    The colors go perfectly with the room! I haven't ordered anything from Overstock because I have heard the same thing about the colors not being exact. You really lucked out because it looks wonderful!

  9. I just love overstock for rugs. Since I moved into our new house a few months back, I've ordered 4 large rugs and have been very happy with them and seriously, no one can beat those prices! I actually got a 9x12 in the same pattern and company, different colors, for my great room as yours! It's so thick and high quality and the same rug was twice as much anywhere else! You can check it out here:

  14. Very pretty and you are so right! Can't beat Overstock's shipping charges. I don't know why all companies can't do that!

  21. I love it, Kim. It looks like it picks up a lot of colors in your room. Great choice. I am always a bit afraid to order something like that from Overstock because of the difference in colors than the monitor and the real thing. Glad it worked out this time. xo Diana

  22. Hi Kim,
    Your new rug is beautiful in the room. The colors are perfect.
    I wish that I didn't have such a hard time choosing rugs. I'll bring one home, try it and end up taking it back! LOL
    Maybe I need you to choose one for me.

    hugs

  24. Love your new rug! I have a traditional style wool rug in our great room, and adore it. It's quite similar to yours, in a more greenish colour palette. I am so jealous of all the great shopping options you have down in the US. We're getting more and more north of the border, so hopefully this is another company that we can order from soon =)

  25. Gorgeous rug. It looks beautiful in your LR. Lovely pattern and colors. Hugs, marty

  26. I was wrong! I just checked their site and it says "Now shipping to Canada" woot! I'll have to check out their goods =)

  31. I bet you've been enjoying how it feels underfoot too. It looks like it is very soft. I like how it brings out the colors in the rest of the room onto the floor.

  32. Love the rug Kim. It's a perfect compliment to the room.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That looks beautiful, Kim. It matches the furniture and style of your room so well. At first glance, I thought it was from Pottery Barn. I don't think I've ever looked at Overstock.com before...I'll have to check it out :)

  34. That's a beautiful rug & it looks fantastic in your room!

  35. Love your new rug Kim and your right about it being more cozier! I felt the same when I replaced the rug in our family room last year from a sisal to a wool print. Your room looks so pretty!

  39. I love the rug! I'm also a huge fan of Overstock for rugs, I've gotten 2 from them so far, maybe more once the kids trash our play room rug:) I'll have to institute a "No Play Doh on the rug" rule.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ohmygosh! Kim! This rug is so pretty and the most perfect colors! I don't think you could have found one that would have looked any more beautiful than this one....

    Love it!

  41. It looks like it was made for your room! I'm really impressed! I have been hesitant to buy rugs online for the very reasons you describe - it's nice to see a rug up close and "in person". ;-)

  42. I am sooooooo loving this rug and the colors! (My dining room and foyer rugs came from Overstock.com, and I have absolutely loved them!)

    Yes, this is absolutely the perfect rug for this room!

    Grins!

  45. Very pretty, Kim! Love the colors and the pattern. It suits this room perfectly. You definitely can't beat $3.00 shipping on a rug that big! I've been trying to check overstock when I'm looking for something now because of their shipping.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It's looks great in the room, I've never ordered from them so I'll have to go take a look!

  47. I have been eyeing the rugs from Overstock!! I think they have the best selection and the best prices. I think I came across this rug too!! Looks GORGEOUS in your room!! Compliments it soooo well!!! I really love what tweaking you've been doing!! Great job :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. That rug looks divine with your furniture! Looks like it was made to go in there. What an exciting find. I have found some good buys on overstock also.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love those traditional rugs! It matches everything in your room perfectly!
    It's always a risk when you don't see it in person. You had a experience with this one.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Kim this rug is gorgeous!!! It really shows of your already beautiful room!

    ReplyDelete
  51. You will not believe this Kim!! I bought that rug today or at least one that is very close. I am sure it is the one though, and 8x10. I found it at HomeGoods. Wool, right? It is still on the truck. I wasn't sure about it and will see when it is down. The seagrass is on it's way to the hearth room and the kilim to the lodge. When I saw your rug I had to smile. Talk about great minds.

    I have always had great success with Overstock.

  52. Love the new rug, Kim! The colors all work perfectly together! You really have been in overdrive this month! I am stuck in idle!

    Thank you for linking this lovely post to Potpourri Friday!

  53. Okay, we hauled it out of the truck and unrolled it a little bit, my curiosity got the best of me. Mine is darker, but the pattern is very similar. It has browns, blues reds and it has some black to pick up the black in the foyer rug and some of the black accents etc.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Its lovely Kim. What a great find. Very courageous buying on line like that.

  55. Hi Kim,

  56. In love with your new rug, and what a deal on the shipping for heaven sakes because that has to be quite heavy! It's lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think it's the perfect match too! The little pops of red are perfect against the muted pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Usually I don't buy from overstock b/c they've sold me some poor quality merchandise, but your rug is simply stunning! Great deal! andrea@townandprairie

  83. I love it! I have looked at Overstock for rugs many times but am too chicken to order because I'm afraid I'll get it and it look different than on the computer. Have you ever had to return a rug? If so, were they good about returns?

  90. I love the feel of that rug. It is interesting with soft pleasing colours. I always find rugs tricky in that they have to stand the test of time, both physically and visually. That one looks like a perfect choice all round!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Beautiful and it adds that extra pattern in the room and ties in the other colors..looks like a Ballard or Williams-Sonoma.
