Think Outside the Rectangle: Round Rugs

I once had a round rug in my living room and while I eventually grew tired of the color and pattern, I loved the visual interest the circular shape added. It made the room feel open and fresh and pulled together. Designers often suggest using a round rug to trick the eye into making a room appear larger - which makes them ideal for kids bedrooms. Here are ten real kids rooms with round rugs as well as ten round rugs we think would look terrific in a kid's space.

These rooms give you an idea of the look and feel a round rug can create. Click through if you'd like to see more of the room: 

1. Lulu's Art-Filled Downtown Digs
2. Matilda's Delicious Yellow Haven
3. Aiden & Isabelle's Colorful Shared Space
4. Stella's Soiree Suite
5. Ezra's Orange Accents
6. Aylin's Soft & Dreamy Haven
7. Ezra's Animal Kingdom
8. Olive's Aqua Abode
9. Lainey & Nella's Pretty Place
10. Chloe's Nursery

Perhaps one of the reasons we don't see round rugs as often as we'd expect is there is a limited selection in stores and online. You have to flex those shopping muscles a bit to find them. Here are ten to get you started:
