Jungle-inspired apartment bedroom design makeover reveal with Mohawk Home area rug on Thou Swell @thouswellblog

The bedrooms are finally coming together in my apartment and I wanted to share how the beautiful Mohawk Home area rugs in each room drove the designs and grounded each room with its color and pattern. You’ll also see how the design boards I shared last week translate to each rooms. With one jungle-inspired room, one blush room, and a feminine take on blue and green, each design is different but they all tie together in the apartment – especially through the beautiful art prints from Society6. And I can’t not mention the incredible jungle mural in my own room above! Get the details for each bedroom below.

In my bedroom, I used the Palais beige rug from the Under the Canopy collection (such a fitting name for this room!). The rug was light and neutral, with just enough pattern to keep things interesting. It is also incredibly soft – it’s made from Mohawk’s Everstrand fiber which is a premium polyester made from recycled water bottles. I love how it complements the mural in my room, and the warm gold accent of the obelisk table lamp on my modern nightstand.

In Olivia’s room, we kept the same lush blush color palette as her dorm room last year, but brought a whole new element to the room with her beautiful Jardine Medallion blush rug. This rug became the perfect backdrop to her feminine decor and is super durable, with a low-pile design that almost feels a bit vintage. I love the additional pattern it brought to the space!

Last but not least, Nina’s room was completed with the addition of the Spotted Border rug in gray. Her rug has the highest pile, and it’s so cozy! The more natural, simplistic design in her space to let the beautiful floral wallpaper shine, the solid neutral backdrop the rug provided makes a super inviting scene. With a beautiful map of Paris above her bed, the details really came together for a special retreat.

I love that we each have our unique spaces in the apartment that reflect our own ideas of relaxation… Which is your favorite bedroom design?
