Rug Transformations


As a homeowner with wood floors in every room, a few cozy area rugs were some of my very first purchases. I love the fact that we don't have any carpeting but on the other hand, I still want to provide some cushioning, comfort and warmth in our most lived-in spaces. Not to mention, it's the ultimate way to change up a room's personality without redoing everything about the space. Area rugs provide an artistic value to a room's design and can serve as the "frame" for the room.

As usual, I'm mixing things up at home now that a new season is upon us. I love trying out new area rug prints & patterns like I love buying new sweaters. Though I wish this obsession was a bit cheaper, my latest rug addition is 5x8 in size and under $100. Ladies, does this EVER happen in rug world?

I recently moved into a new home and my life has been busy unpacking and trying to fill our new, much larger space up. With four more rooms/areas then our last home, we had our work cut out for us when it came to decor and adding new pieces. We have a budget to stick to, so updating everything in every room is totally not an option. A simple fix is adding a great rug (that won't break the bank) to change the look and feel of a room. 

I ended up choosing this great rug with a faded pattern in the same neutral tones as my house. My favorite part is that the family room is just one of the three places I have had it so far in my house. It literally goes everywhere and I can see myself mixing it up in my home though the seasons!
