I’ve shifted the rugs round in our home musical chairs fashion! Right here’s the replace from our cozy rug swaps : )
Cozy Rug Swaps
How The Rug Swap Began
This story begins with me visiting my pal Meg’s home. She had probably the most lovely coral and blue rug that she had simply purchased for her front room from Wayfair. I admired it and began pondering if we should always do one thing with our front room rug.
Spoiler alert: I purchased it!
Earlier than: The Pottery Barn Chunky Wool + Jute Rug
I LOVE this Chunky Wool / Jute Rug from Pottery Barn! It’s so smooth, cushiony, and tremendous duper cozy. I additionally love pure materials and impartial colours.
I’ve had it for over 7 years and it’s held up effectively given the quantity of site visitors and put on and tear it has seen.
I’ve rotated it round so the half beneath the sofa comes out and vice versa.
Nonetheless, Gus the canine spends all day, each day on this rug, and after I took it to Charlottesville Earthly Cleaners, I advised them it was fabricated from 90% canine hair and 10% wool. Critically, you possibly can’t sit on it with out getting lined in hair (and sure that’s with common vacuums).
You may see the canine hair simply falling out of it:
This can be a nice rug, however I might not advocate it for dwelling rooms.
I spotted after I visited my sister’s home that it’s a super rug for a bed room. She has the rug in her playroom and I couldn’t imagine it was the identical one as a result of hers is in such nice form (it’s admittedly additionally newer than mine).
Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta
So again to Meg’s rug: after I noticed hers I spotted we wanted to maneuver the Pottery Barn rug out and get one thing new. Meg’s rug can be a tremendous worth – it rotates between $150 and $200 for an 8×10: Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta.
Provided that the youngsters and canine are going to beat up any rug I purchase, I’d as effectively purchase a reasonable one!
We’re SO HAPPY with the brand new rug! It provides quite a lot of formality to the room, and the colours match our decor completely.
Pottery Barn –> Mazen’s Room
I thought-about donating the Pottery Barn rug as a result of I didn’t have one other room for it. Till I had the concept to maneuver it into Mazen’s room when visiting my sister.
I took it to get cleaned, which I ought to have carried out years in the past, and it got here again trying SO MUCH BETTER.
The blue rug beforehand in Mazen’s room was by no means sufficiently big. I purchased it for his room at my outdated home and it’s all the time been too small for this room. So upgrading not solely the rug materials however the measurement to an 8×10 made a giant distinction in coziness.
You may see a couple of tufts sticking up, however general it’s in nice form. A brand new life!
Mazen’s Rug –> Birch’s Room
Right here’s the rug that has been in Birch’s room since we embellished his nursery.
It was in Thomas’s outdated home. I just like the rug, nevertheless, the colours don’t actually go along with our residence’s lighter, airier fashion.
We’re discovering a brand new residence for the oriental and introduced in Mazen’s blue “Constructive” rug.
We’re nearly prepared to maneuver Birch’s toddler mattress / crib and rocking chair out, transition his altering desk to a dresser, and go full on Massive Boy Room. He can have a lot extra space in there once we do!
The final rug on this publish is our entry rug. This was as soon as Karen’s, and he or she had it lower down. It’s seagrass? Sisal? And it’s trying fairly tough and torn in locations.
I can’t resolve if we even want a rug in our mudroom, however I feel it does assist with kicking dust off of footwear when folks neglect to take them off.
This room would possibly change…
I in all probability received’t exchange it but as a result of…….we’re in all probability going to renovate our home subsequent yr!!
I’ve a weblog publish developing with extra particulars, however I feel I ought to wait and see what this area turns into earlier than shopping for something new.
