Inspiration: Decorating With Kids' Road Rugs

We've all seen the road rugs available in the stores - lots of garish colors that look difficult to incorporate into the decor. Yesterday we spotted this beautiful bedroom (at Design Sponge) and, at first, didn't even notice that the floor covering is actually a road rug.

On closer inspection, we realized that It's the Lekplats play mat from IKEA. But it works so well in this calming white room. The accent pillows on the bed reference the yellows and greens in the rug. We also love the dollop of turquoise from the leather ottoman to add further color. There is nothing tacky about the way this road rug was incorporated. Maybe we'll have to pick one up next time we make an IKEA run.
