What do you think of this rug?


I have a very serious question for you. I was in John Lewis this morning, ostensibly to buy a new blind for the bathroom, when I caught sight of a spotty rug and kind of impulse bought it. ( It was on offer and I couldn't resist it!) The thing is, do you think it's grown up enough for the sitting room or is it more suited to a bedroom - or even a child's room? I can't decide, mainly because I am blinded by my love of spots, but I need to make up my mind so that if it's going back I can get it packed up before the children roll round on it with jammy fingers. (Although if it's not right for the sitting room I might keep it anyway for our bedroom when it's finally revamped...!) I have just rushed home with it in the back of the car and flung it onto the floor for a look before nursery pick-up time.. you know how it is!

All opinions gratefully received. (And thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post, which always make my day!)




7pm update - My husband really likes it so it looks like we're keeping it. I'm amazed but very pleased!

If you love it, keep it. You'll find a place for it.

George I really love it (but also have a complete obsession with spotty things) I sort of know what you mean though about is it grown up enough but I would keep it anyway !!! and plus you have more house style in your little finger than i have in my whole body so maybe not the best person to give you an opinion :-S bet it would look lovely in yours/son's bedroom as well so plenty of options! plus has hubby seen it yet??? he may help the decision making process........
love all the new cushions by the way

Phew - back from the school run! Thanks for opinions- LOL at you obsessing Lesley - just like me! Your house is v. stylish so I do very much value your opinion!

Hubby hasn't seen it yet but I think he's going to say it's too girly for the sitting room; hope he'll agree to keep it anyway. It would be lovely for Anna's room or ours. It's so lovely having a comfy rug with a pile - makes me think I'm going to have to get a slightly more grown up one anyway. The one we have down there at the moment is a sort of flat weave Laura Ashley one I bought for my second flat back in 1998 and it's showing its age a bit - plus not v comfy for the kids to roll about on!

I love this rug as well, and had been stalking it for a while, but it is sold out on the website!! Might have to take a trip to JL to have a look. I think it will work anywhere, esp as your room is quite neutral. Keep it!
