a room inspired by....those bold rugs

So I bet yesterday's "thankful for rugs" post left some of you doubtful.  I bet you saw some of those big bold rugs and thought I had lost my mind!  So today I am going to show you a design board that was created around one of those rugs.  I think it is gorgeous and I hope it restores your faith in me:)  Just the other day I read an excerpt from an interview with Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors and she said something that really resonated with me:

{I’d have to say that the hardest part of my job is getting clients to trust that sometimes, I can’t explain every detail of what I’m  going to do to their homes — I just have to do it. If I try to explain too much, I start sounding like a lunatic without a clue. A vision is always in my head so having a great and trusting client always results in the best end product.} 

I have to say that so far I have had great experiences but sometimes I can tell that when I am explaining my "vision" to someone, they are totally lost or scared or both.  To me it all makes sense because I can see the finished product in my head but to the other person it sounds like mumble jumble.  Sometimes I want to say just what Amber did above..."I swear it will look good, I just can't explain it!"  So this room is my "visual explanation" of one of those crazy rugs yesterday.  I know it still won't be everyones style but maybe (just maybe) someone will love it.

I bet that crazy green animal skin rug wasn't even the first thing you looked at now was it?!  I picture this rug in a room with a little bit of brass and a lot of coziness.  Its definitely a rug that needs to be layered over another to give it a more casual vibe.  I also love using emerald as the main color in a family room because it is unexpected but still not too over-the-top.  I chose accessories that would play off of the boho feel of the rug so vintage trays as wall art, plush fur poufs, an antiqued brass floor lamp and a rustic desk used as a console table.  I can picture lots more to this room from other angles as well as an entire house with the same feel.  Makes me want to grab a comfy throw and read a book in one of those chairs.  Sounds similar to how I am picturing my Thanksgiving holiday!

Thoughts??  Would you ever consider using this rug?  If so how would you style the room?
