In April’s 10th anniversary issue of Real Simple, a Merida sisal rug helped transform a sterile master bedroom into a colorful, welcoming place for a young family. Three lucky Real Simple readers got the chance to have their half-finished rooms redesigned by a savvy interior designer. One winner’s master bedroom was revamped by interior designer Kimberly Ayers, known for her bright and bold color choices. Kimberly selected a “cushy sisal” rug, Madagascar in Tupelo, to layer with a green accent rug, adding a splash of contrast and texture to the room. I love how the warm, neutral tones of the sisal rug help keep the room so balanced and fresh! What do you think?
