When I moved into my new apartment a few months ago, I went from a tiny closet sized bedroom to a full-sized adult bedroom. Finally I had space for more than a double bed and a tiny nightstand. So I’ve been ordering all new pieces to fit the new space (king size canopy bed, alleluia)! The first piece that arrived for my new and improved bedroom is this Montauk rug, which I’m simply crazy about.
To me, a rug that’s low-maintenance but soft underfoot is paramount in the bedroom. When I spotted this blue and white number on eCarpetGallery (and its name is Montauk!) I knew it was the one.
Montauk is my staple destination come summertime. The Long Island surf-town has this city-cool meets easygoing-beach vibe that I just can’t get enough of. When I drive up to the first lookout of Old Montauk Highway and I see the waves crashing on the coastline, I’m always hit with instant “holiday mode”. It seems only fitting to transform my bedroom into a Montauk-inspired retreat. And this rug from is the perfect first piece to the puzzle, don’t you think? On the to-do list:
bedroom to-do list
replace bed with a king sized canopy bed
replace bedside tables and lamps
buy a new dresser and occasional chair (yay space!)
hang artwork and roman shade in window
refresh sheets and decorative pillows
paint door and window frames a rich chambray hue
