The second (and final day) of Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days is over, but there's still some deals live. One of them comes from none other than Jessica Alba.
The Honey actress has shared her 'Eco Home Essentials,' all available on Amazon, and among them is a living room rug that's still more than half-price after Prime Day. The rug in question, designed by nuLOOM, exhibits an ornate but not overpowering pattern with peach, white, and gold accents – all of which tap into two of the biggest interior design trends of the moment.
Both 'quiet luxury' and 'warm minimalism' have already dominated conversations in recent months, but as designers explain, these aesthetics are not set to waver in 2024. And this Jessica Alba-approved rug is a beautiful starting point.
Was $140, now $63.25 on Amazon
Handpicked by Jessica Alba, this Climate Pledge-friendly rug is as durable as it is good-looking. It has a flat 04" pile and includes non-slip backing, allowing for convenient placement near doorways and underneath furniture. It's also spill and stain-resistant and machine-washable.
In many ways, both warm minimalism and quiet luxury go hand in hand – encouraging us to opt for sustainable, high-quality pieces that will impress for many seasons ahead. This often involves choosing warmer hues (unsurprisingly) and balancing the patterns we choose with subtler block colors.
Therefore, while investing in this rug is one thing, knowing what to pair it with is another, and this is where designers come into play. New Jersey-based designer Sarah Storms recommends incorporating leather for the ultimate warm, minimalist, quietly luxurious look.
'When it comes to warm minimalism, leather is your friend. It's an incredible material: It has a richness and warmth to it visually and becomes incredibly soft and luxurious feeling with age,' she says.
'So many people think of leather only in terms of seating, which can be great, like an antique Chesterfield, which I love, but the quiet, small leather touches can bring incredible depth to a room: Think leather-wrapped hardware and even lighting. This is the evolution of quiet luxury: We want that layered, collected look, but we don't want to live in a space crammed with stuff.'
Sarah Storms is an interior designer based in Maplewood, New Jersey. After a career that spanned the US and Europe, Sarah launched her studio in January 2021 – allowing her unique background and creative passion for interiors, textiles, and color to shine through.
When it comes to accessorizing, we look, once again, to Jessica, who listed her living room best-buys in one place. Among them are this white ceramic plant pot and this decorative wooden pedestal which are both also on sale now. We're hurting to the checkout before these deals end tonight.

Bottle vases like this are perfect for displaying single stems on bookshelves and mantels, but look good even when they're empty.
