We needed a slim runner for a very long, narrow bathroom. I know that sounds weird, but it's not--the double sink vanity runs the length of the room on one side, a shower-stall is on the other, and the commode is set back in an alcove. I did not want a shower mat and two sink mats in such a narrow space, that kind of thing invites trip and fall accidents for people my age. So, this runner was the perfect solution. Normally, I don't like rugs in a bathroom, but since the toilet is back in its own alcove and away from the runner, there is no "ick" factor. It just works. I like the look, too, for this particular bathroom because it compliments the antiqued silvery black mirrors, vanity lighting and brushed nickel fixtures. It's a transitional style with an old-timey worn look.
I have this rug in an adjacent room, Laundy off the Kitchen, where I put a pair of striped rugs with the same color pallete as this one. They look great as a set. This rug is more plush and has held up to cleaning and traffic from the garage and garden well. I paired it with the Blue/ Ivory stripe pattern outdoor area rug from style haven, and the colors are an exact match.
This rug looks regal, with the raised pattern with cream and slate blue. We bought this for our master which has cream on the walls and the bath has grey paint, so this is the perfect mix of cream and grey for our transitional style.. The pattern is clear, and it doesn't have a distressed/vintage look like some of the other rugs on the market today (I don't like those because they sometimes look like there was a design error). The viscose fibers make for a VERY soft touch, and this rug is thin enough to keep clean with a dog in the house.
