How to layer rugs!

Layering your rugs has become increasingly popular in the past year or so. I have to admit, at first I didn't really understand the idea. But the more I saw it, the more I loved it. And now I'm on the hunt for a couple of rugs to layer in our master bedroom. So I thought I would take you along on this journey with me. So buckle up and let's get started.

Pick a size that is 1-2 sizes bigger than your top rug. You will want the foundation rug to peek out under the top rug. Here are my options
