I have shifted the rugs all around in our residence musical chairs design! Here’s the update from our cozy rug swaps : )
Cozy Rug Swaps
How The Rug Swap Began
This tale starts with me checking out my good friend Meg’s property. She experienced the most gorgeous coral and blue rug that she experienced just acquired for her residing place from Wayfair. I admired it and started out imagining if we should do anything with our living place rug.
Spoiler alert: I purchased it!
In advance of: The Pottery Barn Chunky Wool + Jute Rug
I Appreciate this Chunky Wool / Jute Rug from Pottery Barn! It’s so soft, cushiony, and super duper cozy. I also adore all-natural materials and neutral shades.
I have had it for about 7 years and it is held up perfectly specified the amount of money of targeted visitors and wear and tear it has noticed.
I’ve rotated it close to so the part beneath the couch comes out and vice versa.
On the other hand, Gus the pet spends all working day, every single working day on this rug, and when I took it to Charlottesville Earthly Cleaners, I advised them it was produced of 90% puppy hair and 10% wool. Significantly, you cannot sit on it with out acquiring lined in hair (and of course that is with regular vacuums).
You can see the canine hair just slipping out of it:
This is a fantastic rug, but I would not advocate it for residing rooms.
I understood when I frequented my sister’s dwelling that it is an perfect rug for a bed room. She has the rug in her playroom and I couldn’t believe that it was the exact same a single mainly because hers is in this sort of terrific condition (it is admittedly also newer than mine).
Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta
So again to Meg’s rug: when I saw hers I realized we essential to move the Pottery Barn rug out and get a thing new. Meg’s rug is also an amazing price – it rotates in between $150 and $200 for an 8×10: Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta.
Supplied that the young ones and puppy are likely to beat up any rug I get, I may well as effectively invest in an reasonably priced just one!
We are SO Satisfied with the new rug! It adds a whole lot of formality to the place, and the hues match our decor beautifully.
Pottery Barn –> Mazen’s Area
I viewed as donating the Pottery Barn rug for the reason that I did not have one more place for it. Until finally I experienced the thought to go it into Mazen’s room when going to my sister.
I took it to get cleaned, which I must have carried out several years back, and it came back again seeking SO Substantially Far better.
The blue rug beforehand in Mazen’s area was hardly ever significant sufficient. I acquired it for his place at my old house and it is often been way too little for this home. So upgrading not only the rug materials but the size to an 8×10 produced a huge variation in coziness.
You can see a few tufts sticking up, but overall it is in terrific condition. A new existence!
Mazen’s Rug –> Birch’s Home
Here’s the rug that has been in Birch’s room given that we embellished his nursery.
It was in Thomas’s outdated property. I like the rug, having said that, the colours really do not seriously go with our home’s lighter, airier type.
We are getting a new property for the oriental and introduced in Mazen’s blue “Positive” rug.
We are nearly prepared to shift Birch’s toddler mattress / crib and rocking chair out, transition his changing table to a dresser, and go full on Significant Boy Room. He will have so significantly extra room in there when we do!
The final rug in this publish is our entry rug. This was once Karen’s, and she experienced it lower down. It’s seagrass? Sisal? And it is searching really rough and torn in sites.
I just cannot make a decision if we even require a rug in our mudroom, but I feel it does enable with kicking dirt off of shoes when persons overlook to just take them off.
This place may change…
I likely won’t switch it however because…….we’re probably going to renovate our residence subsequent year!!
I have a blog site submit coming up with a lot more information, but I imagine I must hold out and see what this room results in being ahead of obtaining everything new.
