For months now, my friend has been wanting me to help decorate her 5-year-old daughter’s bedroom. I told her that we would have to start with the most important piece — the piece that makes or breaks an entire room: the rug.
It can take a simple room from bland to BAM!!
Check out the two rooms down below. Both of them are fantastically decorated rooms, but the rugs are the one item that take them over the top.
So when she told me that she fell in love with this nuLoom Avignon Pink Toto Rug from Wayfair, I knew we could finally begin. It’s a flatweave rug, made of 100% cotton.
I told her that she had made a great selection because it is feminine without being too juvenile.
We then began making a virtual bedroom with other products from Wayfair‘s site. I told her to keep the furniture basic so that she didn’t outgrow it in a few years and would have to start all over again.
We then added the more fun touches to the room with the bedding and accessories.
Originally my friend had chosen a rug with cute but childish polka-dots, but once again we didn’t want her to hate it the second she became a tween.

The offer is only good from 7/31 to 8/4 so make sure you use it before it’s gone!
I am definitely not a a person who loves to shop in brick & mortar businesses. I also have a hard time visualizing what pieces would look good together. The idea of creating a virtual room before purchasing the items is just fantastic! Using Wayfair will save me time, energy, & money – three reasons I am grateful I read your blog today.
Thank you, Shanna. I can’t wait to try the site out.
Thanks Jeanie! It is nice to have it all laid out in front of you,
I love the rug and you are right the rug is the one piece that ties the whole room. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Vanessa!
Love the rug and other pieces, the room is going to look gorgeous and I agree with using pieces she wont hate the second she becomes a teen! Wayfair has the best rugs absolutely love them!

Love the story board for this room so far! That rug is really cute and like you said, it will grow with her! 🙂
I love Wayfair and didn’t know they had this tool. Going to pop over and check it out now. Thanks! I know the room will be stunning. ~Jeanette
Thanks Jeanette! Wayfair is amazing!
Great selections. It’s so smart to pick things that will last into the tween/teen years…as I’m in the process of making over my daughter’s room AGAIN.
I hear you Sharon! I learned the hard way too!

Thanks Kathy! I’m a sucker for any type of bling!
This room is going to be so cute for your friend’s little girl!

I love the mood board you put together! And I totally agree – a rug does really make (or break) a room! I have been struggling with finding the right rug in our living room.
It’s going to be a beautiful space. Great rug choice for sure. BUT, I am heading over to check out the chandy 🙂
Thanks for sharing Wayfairs site with me Shanna.
Certainly Meegan! It’s a fantastic site!
Jeanette @ Snazzy Little Things says
the rug is always the last thing I purchase because I know it’s a deal breaker….if i choose the wrong one the room will be disjointed. What a great post….thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much Jeanette!

Thanks Angie! I agree!
