I have shifted the rugs close to in our home musical chairs style! Here’s the update from our cozy rug swaps : )
Cozy Rug Swaps
How The Rug Swap Started off
This story starts with me checking out my mate Meg’s home. She had the most wonderful coral and blue rug that she had just acquired for her dwelling room from Wayfair. I admired it and started wondering if we really should do a little something with our living home rug.
Spoiler warn: I bought it!
Ahead of: The Pottery Barn Chunky Wool + Jute Rug
I Adore this Chunky Wool / Jute Rug from Pottery Barn! It’s so gentle, cushiony, and tremendous duper cozy. I also enjoy pure fabrics and neutral shades.
I’ve had it for above 7 many years and it’s held up very well provided the quantity of site visitors and dress in and tear it has witnessed.
I’ve rotated it about so the portion below the sofa arrives out and vice versa.
Nevertheless, Gus the pet spends all day, just about every working day on this rug, and when I took it to Charlottesville Earthly Cleaners, I explained to them it was built of 90% canine hair and 10% wool. Critically, you just cannot sit on it with out receiving included in hair (and indeed that is with regular vacuums).
You can see the dog hair just slipping out of it:
This is a good rug, but I would not propose it for living rooms.
I understood when I visited my sister’s residence that it is an best rug for a bed room. She has the rug in her playroom and I could not believe that it was the similar one particular since hers is in these wonderful condition (it’s admittedly also more recent than mine).
Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta
So again to Meg’s rug: when I saw hers I understood we desired to move the Pottery Barn rug out and get one thing new. Meg’s rug is also an awesome price – it rotates among $150 and $200 for an 8×10: Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta.
Presented that the youngsters and canine are going to conquer up any rug I get, I may as properly get an cheap one!
We are SO Pleased with the new rug! It adds a great deal of formality to the space, and the colours match our decor properly.
Pottery Barn –> Mazen’s Room
I regarded as donating the Pottery Barn rug for the reason that I didn’t have a further home for it. Right up until I had the notion to go it into Mazen’s space when traveling to my sister.
I took it to get cleaned, which I need to have finished decades in the past, and it arrived back again wanting SO Much Greater.
The blue rug previously in Mazen’s space was never significant plenty of. I bought it for his space at my aged home and it’s usually been too small for this home. So upgrading not only the rug product but the sizing to an 8×10 created a large distinction in coziness.
You can see a handful of tufts sticking up, but in general it’s in fantastic shape. A new daily life!
Mazen’s Rug –> Birch’s Room
Here’s the rug that has been in Birch’s room considering the fact that we embellished his nursery.
It was in Thomas’s outdated residence. I like the rug, having said that, the hues do not truly go with our home’s lighter, airier model.
We are finding a new residence for the oriental and brought in Mazen’s blue “Positive” rug.
We are almost ready to move Birch’s toddler mattress / crib and rocking chair out, changeover his switching desk to a dresser, and go whole on Massive Boy Home. He will have so substantially far more area in there when we do!
The past rug in this post is our entry rug. This was once Karen’s, and she had it minimize down. It is seagrass? Sisal? And it is on the lookout pretty rough and torn in places.
I can’t come to a decision if we even will need a rug in our mudroom, but I feel it does assist with kicking grime off of shoes when folks fail to remember to just take them off.
This place could possibly change…
I likely won’t exchange it nonetheless because…….we’re likely likely to renovate our house upcoming year!!
I have a web site put up coming up with additional information, but I believe I really should wait around and see what this space gets to be prior to acquiring anything at all new.
