Color My World: Week 2

For this week of the Color My World challenge, I used navy in home decor. I chose a rug that is now in my bedroom.


Here is a good look at the rug that had been stored away in my parents' attic for years… it is beautiful!


Could it be any more perfect in the space? I am really pleased. The navy is an unexpected color addition to the room, which has me loving it all the more.

Here's another glance at my bedside vignette:


I've added a little DIY art and spiffed up an Ikea frame. Thanks for the inspiration, Courtney!
Be sure to check out the other lovelies that are taking on the challenge with me!

you r parents just had that rolled up in their attic???? it's AMAZING. seriously. i would die for that rug. well maybe not die because i wouldn't be able to enjoy it, but i would make some sort of sacrifice, like no coffee for a week.
