I have shifted the rugs all-around in our house musical chairs fashion! Here’s the update from our cozy rug swaps : )
Cozy Rug Swaps
How The Rug Swap Started off
This story begins with me visiting my buddy Meg’s dwelling. She experienced the most attractive coral and blue rug that she experienced just bought for her dwelling home from Wayfair. I admired it and started out imagining if we really should do some thing with our residing place rug.
Spoiler notify: I acquired it!
Prior to: The Pottery Barn Chunky Wool + Jute Rug
I Appreciate this Chunky Wool / Jute Rug from Pottery Barn! It’s so tender, cushiony, and tremendous duper cozy. I also really like normal materials and neutral shades.
I have had it for more than 7 many years and it’s held up well provided the total of targeted traffic and don and tear it has found.
I have rotated it all-around so the aspect less than the couch comes out and vice versa.
Having said that, Gus the pet dog spends all working day, every single working day on this rug, and when I took it to Charlottesville Earthly Cleaners, I instructed them it was made of 90% pet dog hair and 10% wool. Seriously, you simply cannot sit on it without the need of having lined in hair (and yes that is with normal vacuums).
You can see the pet hair just falling out of it:
This is a wonderful rug, but I would not advise it for living rooms.
I realized when I visited my sister’s house that it’s an great rug for a bed room. She has the rug in her playroom and I could not think it was the same one particular because hers is in such terrific condition (it’s admittedly also more recent than mine).
Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta
So again to Meg’s rug: when I observed hers I realized we necessary to shift the Pottery Barn rug out and get one thing new. Meg’s rug is also an remarkable rate – it rotates involving $150 and $200 for an 8×10: Mya Oriental Rug in Terracotta.
Offered that the young children and puppy are going to beat up any rug I purchase, I could possibly as effectively buy an inexpensive a person!
We are SO Pleased with the new rug! It adds a whole lot of formality to the home, and the hues match our decor beautifully.
Pottery Barn –> Mazen’s Place
I viewed as donating the Pottery Barn rug due to the fact I did not have another place for it. Right until I had the plan to go it into Mazen’s place when traveling to my sister.
I took it to get cleaned, which I should have performed years back, and it arrived back again hunting SO A lot Superior.
The blue rug earlier in Mazen’s place was never ever big enough. I purchased it for his place at my previous home and it is normally been too little for this home. So upgrading not only the rug content but the dimensions to an 8×10 manufactured a huge variance in coziness.
You can see a handful of tufts sticking up, but over-all it is in excellent form. A new everyday living!
Mazen’s Rug –> Birch’s Home
Here’s the rug that has been in Birch’s place since we embellished his nursery.
It was in Thomas’s previous residence. I like the rug, even so, the colours really do not really go with our home’s lighter, airier model.
We are getting a new home for the oriental and brought in Mazen’s blue “Positive” rug.
We are virtually completely ready to shift Birch’s toddler mattress / crib and rocking chair out, changeover his transforming desk to a dresser, and go total on Massive Boy Area. He will have so substantially additional place in there when we do!
The very last rug in this post is our entry rug. This was after Karen’s, and she experienced it lower down. It’s seagrass? Sisal? And it’s on the lookout really rough and torn in spots.
I can not make your mind up if we even will need a rug in our mudroom, but I consider it does enable with kicking grime off of shoes when people today forget about to get them off.
This room might change…
I likely will not change it still because…….we’re possibly heading to renovate our dwelling future year!!
I have a web site article coming up with a lot more information, but I consider I need to wait and see what this house becomes ahead of buying everything new.
