“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.
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.
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 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!
For those with color commitment issues in your home, like me, I hope you found this post helpful!
