During a recent sick day at home, lounging in my bedroom, I started thinking of ways to improve my space. Cozy season is here, after all, and I want to ensure that my home is as snug and inviting as can be in honor of winter. I decided that I wanted my bedroom to feel warmer and more welcoming.

Chilly temperatures mean I'll be spending more time curled up inside over the next several months. So, in looking around my sleep space, I wanted to introduce a little more color into the room (without breaking the bank, of course). I was happy with my wall color and wasn't planning on making any major furniture changes. What else was there to do?

I decided that swapping out my existing Loloi rug for a more colorful style would be the perfect quick fix—and that it was.

I've loved all of Loloi's patterned rugs, given that they're affordable, comfortable underfoot, durable, and easy to clean. Over the years, I've owned quite a few different Loloi designs, and they all made my various bedrooms feel more complete. Plenty of my favorite home influencers praise this brand, too—it really is an excellent, budget-friendly pick.

While scrolling through Pinterest, I came across a photo featuring the "Chris Loves Julia" Loloi rug in the Merlot colorway. I tracked down the piece on Amazon within minutes, and it arrived at my doorstep just a few days later.

I couldn't be happier with my new rug. I absolutely love the red tones and how much they pop in my space.

While moving my bedroom furniture around to remove my existing rug and replace it with the new one wasn't the most fun activity, the hard work paid off: I couldn't be happier with my new rug. I absolutely love the red tones and how much they pop in my space.

The rug is designed to mimic the look of a vintage rug. While I do love shopping secondhand, I've found that sometimes vintage rugs are tricky, given that they're generally nonrefundable (meaning ordering one—especially if it's large—can be a bit of a risk) and they oftentimes show some signs of wear.

While I do appreciate a bit of patina, it wasn't the look I was going for in the case of my bedroom. After all, my space features pieces that are a bit more contemporary in style, and I was craving the clean lines of a newer rug.

The rug I purchased comes in 10 different sizes, so no matter your spatial needs, you can figure out a way to incorporate one of these beauties into your own home. And if you're not loving this exact color scheme, fear not: within the Chris Loves Julia line, there are plenty more colorways to be found, and the Loloi brand as a whole offers a slew of rug options. The possibilities are truly endless.
