They were all Yellow.

Ack! I just titled this post after Coldplay lyrics! Shame! Please keep reading anyway.

Sometime recently I decided that what I really wanted was a yellow rug in the bedroom. Last year I thought a light blue, but our bedroom has changed quite a bit in that time - new curtains, new bedding, and the removal of one vinyl barf-green chair.

Really, what inspired this was seeing this beautiful Madeline Weinrib rug, called Goldenrod Brooke.

Sadly, this beauty is slightly out of my price range. And by "slightly" I mean phenomenally.

The bedroom currently lacks color. It has a lot of wood furniture, and wood floors, and looks pretty brown. Once someone remarked (admittedly before the new curtains and chair-removal) that the room looked like the 70s. Egads.

Not really sure yellow is anti-70s, but H. and I think it could give it a much-needed pop of color. An explosion of color, even. In my mind I want a French's Yellow Mustard kind of yellow.

Last week I ordered a sample from Flor of "Feelin' Groovy".

It looks pretty popped-up yellow, but H. and I can't quite decide if it is as yellow as we wanted. Here are some test shots:

With the bedding

With floor and curtains

With bedding and floor

With cat

I don't think it's quite there yet. What do you think?

I think the other option is this Toy Poodle Yellow, but I'm slightly worried it might just be the same kind of yellow:

Thoughts? Advice?


  1. I really, really like the 'Feelin' Groovy' yellow with the grey in the bedding and the curtains...and Izzy!

  2. I think it looks great with the dark grey and white - great pick!
    Oh, and now I'll have that song in my head all night... ;)

  3. Thanks Staci and Alison, for your feedback! I ordered two other samples from Flor, just to compare. One of these has to be "the one"!
