Does this rug go with my room

(30 Posts)

I've had my living room revamped. I've got a pale laminate, a taupe grey colour. One black leather 3 seater sofa. A tv on a black glass stand. White fire as shown. Curtains as shown. In an alcove an Art Deco type lady table with glass top.
At the other end of the rooom I'm waiting for a black / white Art Deco type dining set with black glass top

My DIL complains there's no colour in the room so I thought I might get a rug

Do you think this Ikea button rug would go.

I don't want flowery

Dowser Mon 05-Jun-17 23:52:24

Oh bum , I pasted wrong photo of my room.

MargotLovedTom1 Mon 05-Jun-17 23:54:15

It would clash horribly with your curtains.

Dowser Mon 05-Jun-17 23:55:08

This is the dining set I'm waiting for

Dowser Mon 05-Jun-17 23:56:12

Oh god, no it's not. It's my old one!
Time for bed isn't it?

Dowser Mon 05-Jun-17 23:57:05

Thank you Margot.

I appreciate that.

Dowser Mon 05-Jun-17 23:58:20

Any suggestions.
Tomorrow will do!
Gawd , I've just taken the wrong tablets as well!
I'm a nightmare!

No. It is a beautiful rug but no way suitable with the curtains.

burnishedsilver Tue 06-Jun-17 00:01:56

Yes, it will go but i think that the the buttons might look a bit "playroom".

MargotLovedTom1 Tue 06-Jun-17 00:02:46

Suggestion would be a plain rug when you have patterned curtains. Maybe a shaggy one with a coffee table on top?

I think plain rug would look better. The rug you have posted would look quite busy and out of place. This is coming from a lady who has been having decorating meltdowns latelygrin. Btw love the fireplace.

Dowser Tue 06-Jun-17 00:05:45

Yes, I thought circles would be better than buttons.
That's why I asked as I wasn't sure.

This is where I always fall down. Get the room almost right and then it's that last little bit.
Still there's no rush.

The IKEA rug needs an IKEA environment - lots of bold colours including that apple green colour of which their designers are very fond (seen on the green button on the rug), white high gloss furniture etc etc.

PeachPearPotato Tue 06-Jun-17 01:35:51

Maybe easier to change the curtains?

SerfTerf Tue 06-Jun-17 01:56:21

How about running with the idea of Art Deco to pull it all together? A google image search for "Art Deco patterns" immediately gives you wonderful examples like these.

If you could find something along those lines with some gold in it, it would warm the whole room up a bit too.

My seven year old DD has that rug in her bedroom. I love it but I'm not sure I would have it elsewhere in the house.

SerfTerf Tue 06-Jun-17 02:22:16

Do you like any of these?


Or pick a fairly plain rug in an accent colour that you can pick up with art work and other details?

SerfTerf Tue 06-Jun-17 02:24:56

Not sure what happened there confused All the links jumped around.,size:

loopyloppy Tue 06-Jun-17 02:29:27

Serfterf- lovely!!!!

SerfTerf Tue 06-Jun-17 02:42:44

Which one do you like loopy?

I'm tempted by the zigzag one myself. The shell pattern one is nice too. It's dangerous, window shopping in the small hours smile

CondensedMilkSarnies Tue 06-Jun-17 02:51:47

What about something like these ? I think you've got similar colours in the curtains .

MargotLovedTom1 Tue 06-Jun-17 07:40:16

I don't think any of those patterned rugs would go with the floral curtains. I did think, as peach said, that it would be easier to change the curtains to plain ones, then introduce pattern with rugs and cushions.

Dowser Tue 06-Jun-17 08:05:08

I like the shells one serfterf
Thank you for your help.
Yes you're right about mixing patterns and I'm so glad I asked before buying the buttons one.

I think a plain one would be the way to go if keeping the curtains.
The dining set should arrive today or tomorrow.
That'll keep dh busy.
Then there's the computer and table in the other half that's waiting to go.

I'll get that other half all sorted and then maybe look for a tomato red shade of one.
I need to wash the curtains.
Spent a fortune so far on the house and haven't tackled the garden yet. Got that joy to come.
Thank you all for your help.

Sorry, I think that IKEA rug is only really suitable for playrooms, nurseries or children's bedrooms.

I think do colourful rugs that are much more 'grown up' if you want to have a look there. More expensive than IKEA though.

Serf- all of them! But particularly the middle two on the right. star
