Building Your Room Around a Statement Rug

We're talking all about furniture this month on Apartment Therapy, and for many of us, a potential purchase in this area is limited to one piece — switching out an older chair with an upgrade, or finding space for a new side table. But what if you have the luxury-slash-dilemma of building a room from scratch?

Amy at Shelter Pop suggests starting with a statement rug. She outlines her process for using the rug as the style anchor for the room by wisely breaking the task into choices around three main areas, color, texture and pattern. In the post, she outlines the reasoning behind the specific furniture and accessory choices in her moodboard, all based around the bold peacock-motif rug.
