Not too long after I shared our Fall Home Tour with you, I finally decided on a rug for our living room. Back in the beginning of the year I got rid of our navy trellis rug, in search of something more neutral. We temporarily had an old navy and white striped rug in here, but it was too small for the space. I always loved the natural jute rugs, but there are so many different ones to choose from.
I love the texture it adds to the space. Neutral but not washed out by the rest of the rooms light colors.
Finding the right rug size was tricky. I've had everything from a 4X6, then jumped up to an 8X10, then back down to a 5X7, which has helped me realize that a 5X7 or smaller, is just too small. And an 8X10 is just too big. It was basically like have wall to wall carpet. And while I love being able to see our hardwood floors, I still want the rug to be able to fit under the furniture and ground the space by covering enough space around the coffee table as well.
I did lots of searching, lots of review reading, lots of comparison, but in the end Rugs USA met all my needs. The right size, the right reviews, and with their discounts the right price. A big concern with jute rugs is how soft will it be. I knew that if I spent more, the quality would be higher, more likely softer, but everyone kept commenting on this one from Rugs USA with how soft it was, and so comfortable, and they were so right!
It's so soft and plush, and the hubby really likes it too, which is the cherry on the top! Of course it fits right in with our fall decor, but I'm anxious to see how it looks after the holidays when the room returns to it's normal neutral state.
Don't forget to come back everyday next week for a different Thanksgiving Table decor idea. I also have a great group of friends joining me on Friday for the Grand Finale, where each person will share their thanksgiving table. Sounds fun, right?!?!
