Bedroom Rug Over Carpet

I was browsing rug sources last night, looking for a rug to layer over the carpet in the master bedroom and came across some contenders on Lulu & Georgia and Joss & Main, but I still want to check out Homegoods and some other online retailers like RugsUSA, Target and Overstock before I pull the trigger.  I’ll continue pinning my faves onto my “rug” Pinterest board if you want to check them out.  I still need to measure to see exactly the size we need, but our bed is a little over 7 feet wide, so I’m looking at  rugs at least 7’6 x 10’6.  I like to see lots of rug beyond the actual bed.
Below is a cool graphic illustrating how different rug sizes will look with a king bed.
A friend of mine has beautifully incorporated a rug into her bedroom design.  Sita Montgomery‘s master bedroom is neutral perfection!
And talk a gorgeous fireplace!  See the whole room tour on her blog.
I know I’m on the right track with our neutral bedroom when I realize I still love our light grey walls  (Sherwin Williams – A New Grey) and neutral bedding (that we’ve had for years in the ‘Pacific’ colorway- it’s on sale now, by the way).  I’m excited to continue in this direction and finally add in a rug!

    This Is great because we will definitely be looking for a rug for our room because the carpet in the bedrooms at the new house that we are renting just isn't our favorite, lol

    The rug in the first photo is perfect! I can't wait to see what you select.

    This is such a helpful graphic. I've been dying to add a rug to complete my master bedroom and haven't been able to determine the right size. Thanks for sharing!

    I just suggested that RH bedding in Pacific colorway for a client today! How random. However, we were wanting to incorporate light blues in her room. Would you say that its more grey or could it work as a light blue as well with a linen colored bedspread.

    I love the look of a rug under the bed in a master suite, I need to start looking for one for mine & my fiance's room!
