Tour Our Colorful Area Rugs (that all work together in our home)!

July 6, 2020

I have a tiny confession–I LOVE colorful area rugs! Tour our home and get all the details on the beautiful (and affordable) area rugs we have in every room. 

Every day on Instagram I get asked for the link to at least one of the colorful area rugs in our home. And I'm not complaining! I seriously LOVE talking about rugs. Joe would tell you I have a bit of a rug obsession. And though I act offended when he says it, I'll admit to you that he isn't totally wrong! But, I want you all to benefit from my obsession with colorful are rugs, so I am going to share with you the sources for every single rug in our house! I think people really struggle with first, choosing a rug and second, pulling the trigger on purchasing one. But I am here to tell you not to be scared! Come and check out all of my rugs and get inspired to find the perfect AFFORDABLE rugs for you!

Tips for Choosing a Rug

Before I give you the full tour, I want to let you in on a few rug secrets that will help you choose the perfect rugs for you! 1) I do not buy expensive rugs (and you don't need to either). Nearly all of our rugs are from IKEA, Target, Overstock and Wayfair. 2) An area rug is your single best opportunity to add color, pattern AND texture in a room. 3) Choosing the right size and shape rug is a whole lot easier than you think. Just follow these tips. 4) If you really love a rug, it's okay to have the same rug in more than one space/room. For example, we have this rug in THREE separate spaces in our house–our master bedroom, Avery's room AND in our foyer! And I have the same striped rug in my office/craft room and in our kitchen!
