1. All great. I would go with either 2 or 8. Since the pattern (so great BTW) is pretty busy for the curtains, I would go with a classic stripe or a polka dotty one. You could use one of the others for accent pillows or maybe wall art?

    Thank you for having me yesterday! I tried to comment, but couldn’t… 🙁 BUT thank you, thank you!!

  2. I like option #7. We got a rug that matched our crib bedding. It’s jungle animals and i love it. Good luck.

    I’ve got a great giveaway on my blog today: Sephora Gift Card. Stop by and enter and don’t forget to link up this Thursday.



  3. DO NOT get a rug with a lot of white. You will spend a lot of time sitting on the floor with your kids so buy a rug that feels good to a bare foot and is plush enough to sit on. You will also have many things spilled and rubbed into this rug so again … choose pattern with very little white.

  4. LOVING number 1 (and that’s a lot coming from me, because I loathe the color orange). Simple pattern to contrast against the bold pattern in the curtains. I also like option 8. Same kind of simple vibe.

  5. They’re all beautiful, but my vote is option 7! I think it we lighten things up while complementing, but not competing with the curtains 🙂

  6. Option 2! I think the stripes are the perfect contrast with the pattern of the curtain (which is gorgeous, by the way)…sort of like mixing stripes and florals on an outfit! 🙂

  7. I like #1 but to be honest, I’m a disaster when it comes to home decor. I don’t even have a little bit of skill in that area. Wish I could be more helpful! Can’t wait to see the finished product!

  8. I love option 2 and option 7! They both seem more nursery than the others but also would transition well to a kids room. Can’t wait to see it all come together! I LOVE the Kenyan fabric!!!

  9. I love number 8 but the patterns might totally clash! I was looking through the comments and I love the rug link that Priscila posted. It’s so cute and I think it would tie in great with the black and yellow!! 🙂 I am so indecisive that I never end up getting rugs because I feel like I won’t like them once they are in the room. Good luck lady!

  10. I love 2 and 8. I think the simplicity of the pattern makes it more gender neutral and won’t take away from the curtains. I’m also leaning towards the color in 8, so that it’s not so bright. Good luck, can’t wait to see what you pick!

  11. Molly,
    I love option 2. While it does still have a pattern, the pattern doesnt compete witht that of the curtain fabric. I also think in terms of longevity, that stripes would be alot easier to plan into the room once the baby gets older. IKEA has some great rug options… but ironically, I found my rugs (two of them) for my nursery at Target… I am due June 18th, so we are on similiar time frames! 🙂 good luck with your decision, all are really nice options!

  12. Oh PS – try signing up for Fab.com and Joss & Main – they’ve been having some really great deals on rugs lately!

  13. I love the fabric you chose for the curtains! I think option 1 would work really beautifully against that fabric! I like them all though (and now you have me stalking all these rugs for my own house)!

  14. Molly–check out RugsUSA.com for cheap and cute rugs! We’ve gotten two of our rugs from there and love them. Get on their email list and they have 60-70% off sales all the time. I only shop there when there’s a sale. We got a 6×9 rug for less than $150 bucks!

    Also, I’m completely torn. I love Option 8 because I think soft yellow speaks nursery and the pattern is super cute. But I also love the orange zebra print Option 5…it plays with your Kenya theme and brings it to life in a new way! And it’s bold which I think identifies with you best (even though I don’t know you well!) They’re all gorgeous, so whichever one you pick will be beautiful!


  15. Even though they are all really cute, options 1 and 8 are my favorite, I couldn’t choose between the two.

  16. I like option 7 or 8. The orange rugs are super fun, but I think they will compete for focus with the curtains and anything you have shipped from Nairobi should be the main focus. Option 7 will make the least “statement” because its pattern is more subtle, while 8 seems more bold and very now with the chevron. I’d say to set up the curtains and bedding and decide last on the rug to see how you feel about the room as a whole.

    1. Wait, what do you mean? Are you referring to a changing table and changing pad. Cause we definitely have one of those lol – I’m just referring to a curtain and rugs here haha.
