RUGS : SOME FAVORITE GRAPHIC PATTERNS

DR2_Feb16

As with most of my images on Instagram, I’m always being asked where I shop and for the sources of many of the items in our home. Today I’m talking rugs. I often get asked about my rugs, almost daily! I was very lucky with all of them and they were all quite affordable. I’m a pattern lover, as you know, so it’s important to me that my rugs make a statement. I love how a great rug can ground a space and for me, either a bold or subtle pattern will do that perfectly. Solid rugs are beautiful as well –  and if you’re not into pattern, a beautiful wool or silk rug with in a neutral or bold color can make as much as a statement as well. But today we’re talking graphic prints rugs, since this is what I get asked about.

The one above, in our entryway, is from Home Depot. I scored this for $50 – yes, $50. It’s about 5×7′ and it’s perfect for hiding dirt when guests come in with their shoes or boots. The Moroccan motif is prevalent in our decor – you’ll see glimpses of it throughout our home. It’s very easy to clean as well. You might not think of putting a black rug down, but it’s always sophisticated in my opinion and in a small dose, it works great, especially on a dark floor.

This gorgeous one, at about 8 x 10′, in the dining room is from Target. I’ve spoken about it before – I bought it for the patio, and my girlfriend gave me the brilliant idea of trying it in here. It hasn’t left since! I will say, I’d like to find a cream colored one to replace it with eventually. Until I do however, it stays. It was $85 – you can’t beat that! I also love the flat weave.

It was a bit of a splurge compared to the other two. That being said, considering it’s hand knotted and wool, it was an amazing price for $500, from HomeSense. Hands down, it’s my favorite piece in our home.

    I love your rugs they bring so much color, style and texture to your beautiful home. We also have many rugs as I have all hardwood floors, I do love the rich warmth that rugs bring to a room, and now that we are talking about rugs, I am thinking I need to get the guy who cleans my rugs to send his crew out and pick them up (mine are all really big) and take them in for cleaning. I do it every few years, but it always makes the rooms look so stark and the house almost a echo to it when the rugs are up. Have a great weekend.

      I love rugs too and thank you so much for your lovely compliment, Cindy! There was a time when I never had any – I loved just clean hardwood floors everywhere. Now, I don’t think I could love without them! I love how much character they can bring to a space and how transformative they really can be. I hope you’re feeling well!
