It wasn't lively enough nor did it reflect his personality at all.
Alisha Sukhi felt ball rug. Sukhi felt ball rugs are handmade by artisans in Nepal.
Once an artisan has finished creating a rug, her name is placed on a label attached to the rug. The wonderful artisan who made my rug is Binita Khad Ka. Thank you so much Binita! The Sukhi rug has the most vibrant colors(so me), is beautiful, well made, and feels amazing underfoot. As soon as I saw it, I thought it's going in Ian's room and it will be the inspiration for his new wall color. And so it was.

The color goes beautifully with the Sukhi feltball rug and complements the adjoining walls painted in BM Brittany Blue nicely.
The color reflects Ian's happy and fun personality. Coincidentally I learned too that Sukhi means happy... Imagine that!?
The room while it's not the attic has similar features of an attic space and the height of the bed head wall has always bugged me because it's isn't shorter than the other walls and while I could place the bed on another wall, where it is now is the best spot. So this time around while painting, I decided to extend the paint all the way to the ceiling to give the illusion of height and it worked.

My Sukhi felt ball rug is much more beautiful in person and I absolutely love it! Thanks to the lovely ladies at Sukhi rugs for this beauty!xx
P.S. I was gifted this lovely rug but opinions expressed are my own and the rug is amazeballs!
