Layered Rug Look

Last Fall, I replaced the grey and white dhurrie in our living room with a natural Jute Rug. I was craving a light feel in our living room, plus since the rug was grey, it felt like grey overload, grey walls, grey sofas and grey rug. I love how the jute rug feels so timeless in our space yet modern. 

A year later I still love the Jute rug; with two boys, a husband and a crazy lab puppy its held up really good. We have a few worn spaces on the Jute rug mostly spots that are directly in front of the sofa, not that surprising since its a woven Jute rug style. I've loved the look of layered rugs for quite some time, especially the look of a patterned rug over a Jute. After seeing several pretty living rooms with the jute + patterned rug style I'm inspired to try this look in my living room. Consider me designed obcseed with this look. Below are a few of my favorites.

I love how added a bold patterned rug, or even a neutral rug adds so much vibrancy to a room. One of my biggest design struggles, are rugs! I always flip back and forth between wanting a to with a super neutral rug to layer over our jute or wanting a more colorful bold patterned rug. I love how bold the indigo and red rug looks over the jute rug in the living room below, such a pretty combination. Which is a good reminder for me to remember how much color hardwood floors can handle. 

I'm crushing hard on the patterned rug + jute rug pairing! I've been on the hunt for the past several months trying find the perfect vintage style pattern rug to layer over our Jute to binrg in more pattern and texture into my living room. Are you also a fan of the layered rug look? If so what's your favorite combination?
