Get the Look: 16 Round Jute Rugs

Fresh off a wicker roundup in the Boston Globe (I can’t believe they didn’t go with my “Wickah Smaht” headline) and following up on yesterday’s 18 Rooms with Round Jute Rugs, I’ve pulled together a collection of round jute rugs (or hemp, or other natural fibers), most of them lacey from StyleCarrot partners and other cute shops.

These round jute rugs are intricate but rough, with a ton of tactile appeal. They’re great for entry halls and beach houses or other high traffic situations, or just to add a layer of texture in a neutral room. You can also hang a swirly jute rug on the wall, above a sofa, a bookshelf, or a bed as large, easy, and affordable adornment.

I’m kind of in love with number 3, the fantastical Heenalu jute rug (yes, I realize that one’s not a round jute rug, but I had to include it). Number 8 is fun too, though probably a bit on the boho side for me. Number 7 from Serena & Lily is neat and tidy, and Number 14 comes with a fluorescent pink border too, though I’m not sure if they ship to the States.

Temps have been above 40 in Boston, so I figure it’s time to start thinking about summer decor. I think straw, sisal, wicker, rattan, jute, hemp, and the like can have a place if used sparingly and originally. We can start by checking out round jute rugs.

Montage: 25 Bedrooms with Patterned Bedding

Like most things in my house, I tend towards simple with clean lines. While it’s true that in my living room in Boston, I have a bold Angela Adams rug and smattering of patterned pillows by Jonathan Adler, Kelly Wearstler, Hable Construction, and Judy Ross Textiles, the sofa and upholstered cushions on the vintage Scandinavian chairs from eBay are slightly textured solids

In the bedroom, I always keep colors and textures more subdued. When we lived in a bungalow in Chevy Chase, we had the loveliest bedroom, with pale lilac walls, a creamy wrought iron bed, and a beautiful quilt that my mother-in-law made for us as a wedding gift. The windows looked out on a magnolia tree in the backyard.

Our Boston bedroom, by contrast, is a dungeon. To lighten things up, we have a tall tailored headboard from Pottery Barn, upholstered in white cotton duck. The sheets and duvet are pure white. Not exciting, but the best we can do as everything else seems to have taken priority for the last dozen years. Happily the all white bedroom on the Cape is bliss.

The condo in Delray Beach is currently being painted white. White, white, and more white. The cork floor should go in later this month(!!!). If you’ve been following, you’ll know it’s decorated with white and pale wood furniture from Ikea (sofa, chairs), CB2 (nightstands, dining table), West Elm (bed), etc. and punctuated with pops of color.

The boys’ beds, of which i did a staged makeover, are back to its original style. While the bold graphic bedding looked better, it wasn’t the aesthetic I was going for. So they once again have the Ikea duvet covers in teal and grass green with organic patterns. While the fabric is slightly rough, I love the quality of the duvet inserts, pillows, mattress pads, and other bedding basics.

BeddingStyle.com was in touch recently about doing some sort of makeover using my choice of bedding from its site. There are a few great modern bedding brands, including Marimekko, so I’ve been contemplating whether to try one out in the Florida master bedroom. I had planned on using a sea glass colored Matouk coverlet I bought at the Matouk Factory Store in Fall River, Mass.

In trying to determine whether to go with a subtly colored solid duvet or comforter, or one with a pattern, I thought it best to pull together some examples. (The sheets will remain white; always white.) Here are 25 bedrooms with patterned duvets, comforters, or quilts.
