Window Shopping: Rugs...

Rugs are rugs. They're expensive. There is a TON of choices.

Our living room rug is in a state of sadness. I've always stuck with basic and simple. In the past, for large rugs, we've only purchased what are essentially large carpet remnants from Menard's with finished edges. The one in the living room right now is 6 feet x 9 feet, off-white and cost about $30 if I remember correctly.

Today in my blogs feed, one popped up titled Rugs, Revealed from Retro Ranch Reno. There I read about the same sort of hesitations I have about rugs, but that the rugs that came from Rugs USA were better than expected. I saw the link for Rugs USA and I thought it might be worth it to take a look. Low & behold they were having a 50% off sale. I thought that this could be the perfect opportunity to buy a new rug. But then there are only about a million options and on top of that, half of the ones I like are sold out.

I want something with some color, but nothing crazy. I am open to pattern, but again, nothing too crazy.

I think I'm just confused now... The shaggy rug is essentially what we have now and it's safe. I think my favorite is between  the herringbone one and the cable one. I really like the chunkiness & texture of the cable one. The herringbone is nice because I think it would be bringing in an sight color and pattern but it's not too bold. At the same time, I am worried about overwhelming the room in grey. Choices, choices. The the chevron type ones, but I'm worried it's a trend that's about to die and I will hate it after awhile.

Any preferences out there?  Everything I like is very similar I guess, so you would think this would be easy... Maybe I should look at what they have in gold/yellow colors...
