The textured wallpaper, antique dresser, and neutral colors complement each other perfectly. My favorite part of the room has to be the rug along with the arm chair and ottoman. The combination definitely makes the room pop.
Chevron and ikat have to be my two favorite patterns. Chevron print is so classic and offers a fun alternative to plain stripes. Ikat print is great because it comes in so many variations and the ethnic feel really grounds a room and provides interest. These two strong patterns work so well in this room because they are in the same navy and white tones. The monochromatic look keeps the patterns from clashing and looking too busy.
You could also substitute gray for the navy - see the photos below - and keep white as the neutral color; and then add a pop of yellow as an accent color, for a cool, contemporary look.
Luckily, both of these patterns are in high demand and you can find them everywhere at the moment! I found various chevron rugs, all at different price points. For those of you who want to splurge a bit, there's Anthropologie's Infinite Chevrons Rug.
West Elm's Zigzag Rug and Urban Outfitters' Zigzag Printed Rug are also good options for those of you wanting to find a great deal.
The Urban Outfitter's rug (pictured at right) starts at only $39 for a 3 x 5 rug. And, how chic does this rug look in gray?
There are plenty of ikat print chairs, but, to achieve the feel of this room, I stuck to prints with simpler color schemes.
West Elm's Henry Arm Chair (pictured below) in ikat feather gray/flax is definitely my favorite. West Elm offers a line of several upholstered chairs that give you the option of selecting the fabric you want. I've always been a fan of the ikat print in feather gray and flax. It would look amazing with the gray and white chevron zigzag printed rug from Urban Outfitter's (pictured above). Another great pick is the Slipper Chair from Urban Outfitter's in Indigo Ikat. I love the detail in the design as well as the ink blue color, a perfect companion to navy.
With these pieces, keep the rest of the room neutral and you'll have a gorgeous bedroom in your place.
