“The right rug can become the centerpiece of a room when it’s paired with the right space.” -Joanna Gaines
You know by now that generally speaking, I’m a neutralist at heart. When it comes to designing and decorating the farmhouse what I love about a neutral palette is that, when the spirit moves me, I can add color without having to fully commit to it. My favorite way to add pops of color throughout the year is through the addition of pillows, flowers, throw blankets, and rugs. In winter I gravitate toward green, in spring I love pink, for summer I adore blue, and in fall I can’t get enough muted orange tones. Today, I am sharing some of my favorite rugs in the farmhouse, as well as where I found them. I’ll also tell you what I love about them in case you are looking for the perfect rug for your home. Join me, won’t you?!
This past winter, I added a new rug to our foyer. Not only is this Ruggable, Sima Sage Rug beautiful, but it’s washable. That’s right, I said it, washable!
When I discovered these rugs, my life was changed instantly. With twenty-three farm animals, two kids, and copious amounts of dirt and hay that get tracked into the farmhouse (90% of it on my husband’s workboots), a washable rug was like a dream come true.
The two-piece system is genius. The top layer (the rug) adheres to a pad that is grippy on one side and Velcro-like on the other side. The rug stays perfectly placed atop the pad thanks to the Velcro-like surface and thanks to the grip on the bottom of the pad, your rug doesn’t move at all on the floor. I definitely recommend these rugs for high traffic areas such as foyers, mudrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. They work best on wood, laminate, and tile floors. They are very functional rugs, but not necessarily soft, nor cozy. I would not recommend Ruggable rugs for use on carpet. A couple of years ago I repainted our bedroom. It was blue, which I loved, but I got tired of it after a few years. After painting our daughter’s room Sherwin Williams, Natural Choice, I decided to paint our room the same color. I loved the light, bright change. This year, I thought it would be fun to add back a little color, but I did not want to commit to a new wall color. Cue the rug and pillows!
When the Unique Loom, Portland Rug arrived, I was so pleased with the color. Sometimes it’s hard to tell from websites whether the colors are true to the photos. I was so happy that this rug was true to it’s image and it added the perfect pop of blue to the room while at the same time tying in the beige and cream. It’s also incredibly soft! I love the feel of it when I get out of bed first thing in the morning.I am in love with our newest rug for the farmhouse sunroom. When the Boutique Rugs, Hanlontown Area Rug was delivered it took the whole family to bring it in the house, due to the size and weight of it. Once we unrolled it though, it was love at first sight! I wish I would have recorded the family’s reaction. The kids were doing carpet angels on it and everyone was exclaiming how soft and cozy it felt.
I am over the moon with this rug! My only regret is that I didn’t have it back in December because this is the room we celebrate Christmas in and it is much softer and cozier than the rug we used to have in here. I absolutely adore the texture this rug adds to the sunroom!Last, but certainly not least… Drumroll please… For the first time ever, I added color to the front porch. I can’t believe I waited this long! This Boutique Rugs, Etoile Rug is perfect for under the porch swing. The pop of blue it adds to this space is perfect. It’s got a vintage farmhouse look to it and I love that it can be used indoor and outdoor. Rugs are a wonderful way to add color and texture to your home. The beauty of rugs is that you can move them from room to room to change the look and feel of a space. Moving them also prolongs their life in your home. If you have a rug in a high traffic area, you can move it to a bedroom to give it a break. They are an affordable way to change up the look of rooms in your home without making a permanent commitment to color.
For those with color commitment issues in your home, like me, I hope you found this post helpful!
