Rug Shopping + a $300 Giveaway

81

Happy Tuesday, you guys! I am so excited to share this awesome giveaway with you today. I’m partnering with PlushRugs.com, who have generously offered to give one of you $300 toward any of the rugs on their site. If you’re in the market for a rug, you’ve got to check them out. They have a huge selection. And let me say, even if you haven’t been actively looking for a rug, you should still enter this giveaway. Because every room of the house can be improved with a cute rug! Yes, bathroom, kitchen, and your outdoor patio included. Since there are a ton of options, I thought I’d show you some of my favorites, with some inspiration photos from real homes that have similar rugs. Ready? Let’s do some rug shopping.

Pink overdyed rug

1. Overdyed rugs. I’ve been kind of obsessed with overdyed rugs ever since I saw the one above in Holly Becker’s house. Remember how I mentioned that I wanted to get a pink one in this post? Yeah, Ben nixed that idea, but I’m still hopeful that I can sneak an overdyed rug into our house somewhere. They’re a great way to add color!

Rugs shopping: overdyed rugs

Rug Sources: 1. Demi Overdyed (Funky Yellow) 2. Genisa Overdyed (Pink) 3. Demi Overdyed (Pink) 4. Demi Overdyed (Turquoise)

Love the bright colors and black & white rug

2. Black and white shag rugs. This type of rug is hugely popular right now, and for good reason! They’re neutral enough that they can mix with any kind of decor, but quirky enough that they add some visual interest. And they’re sooo cozy and soft underfoot. See how well a black and white rug works with all the bright colors in Bri Emery’s living room?

Rug shopping: black & white shag rugs

Rug Sources: 1. Square Plush (Natural) 2. Aklim Shag (Ivory) 3. Tifelt Shag (Ivory) 4. Three Row Plush (Natural) 

Geometric rug

3. Geometric rugs. Geometric rugs are bold, youthful, and modern. And I love all the fun, fresh colors that they come in. The bright ones would be perfect for a kid’s room (or any room where you want to add some color and pattern). If you prefer a darker, more grown-up version like the one above (from Aramide Esube’s living room), check out this navy blue one. Its practically identical. 

Loving these geometric rugs

Rug Sources: 1. Bold Curve Trellis (Yellow) 2. Interlocking Swirl (Green) 3. Spectrum (Royal Blue) 4. Capella (Dove Grey) 

Kilim rugs are perfect for the dining room

4. Kilim rugs. Kilim rugs are flat-woven tapestry rugs. They’re thinner and not as plush, but that can make them really great for rooms where you don’t want something with a thick pile (like the dining room). It also makes them perfect for layering over another rug, like a sisal! I think that black floral kilim is just gorgeous. In fact, if I won this giveaway--which, obviously, I can’t--I’m pretty sure that’s where I’d spend the gift card.

Rug shopping: Kilim rugs

Rug Sources: 1. Blossoming Kilim (Black Multi) 2. NVK179A (Multi) 3. NKM316A (Brown, Ivory) 4. Blossoming Kilim (White Multi) 

Sooo you want to know how to enter that giveaway? I bet. I’m already jealous of the winner!

Here’s how it will work:
PlushRugs is developing a discussion & review section where customers can post comments, questions, etc. about any rug on the site. To enter the giveaway, head over to their site and post a comment on the rug that you like best. Make sure you enter your email address so they can confirm your entry. Come back here and paste the url of that rug in the Rafflecopter below. That will unlock 5 additional ways for you to earn entries! The contest will run for one week. Good luck!!

    We need a new rug for our guest room! I think one with yellows or blues would fit best, and they've got some great options with those colors!
  6. Posted by Ellen from Ask Away on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    this would go in the dining room bc its hardwood floor and the dogs slip when they run through it!

    I have been looking for overdyed rugs! Love your examples - perfect visuals to match these beauties! Thanks for the chance!
  12. Posted by Jessica on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I'm obsessed with all of the overdyed rugs, but especially the turquoise. It'd go beautifully anywhere in my apartment - but I think I'd put it in my living room. (Wouldn't turquoise go fab with an orange sofa?!)
  13. Posted by Kelly D on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I like the Lille (Tan, Blue)

  16. Posted by Erin Just on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    My favorite rug is http://plushrugs.com/jaipur/urban-bungalow/farid/white-butter/
    I would use it as a runner behind my sofa. I think it would brighten my whole living room!
  17. Posted by Courtney Ramsey on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    They have so so many cute ones to choose from! I've been looking for something funky to add to our living room lately. Plush Rugs has two I love and think would be great options...the black and white cowhide rug or even just a black and white stripe!

    xo, Courtney

  18. Posted by Sara on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    All of these rugs are absolutely gorgeous! I have been rug-less for about a year now in my hardwood floored apartment so I would put the rug in my living room!
  19. Posted by Lauren on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I've been looking for one for our dining room. What a great selection!

    Wow, so much gorgeousness!

    this is perfect timing! I'm looking for a rug for my living room and I love the black and white ones!
  22. Posted by Jackie on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I adore the Aklim Shag rug you featured and made my comment on that rug (http://plushrugs.com/nuloom/decor-wool/aklim-shag/ivory/).
  23. Posted by Stephanie on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I'd put the turquoise over dyed rug in my living room. We don't have any bright colors in there and I know it'd be just the thing.

    We're in a house now that has wood floors, and I've been itching for a fantastic rug to add color (and softness) to the living room.
  25. Posted by HilLesha on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I'd place my favorite rug in my living room.
  26. Posted by Teh Doll on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I am so inlove with their rugs. My favorite is the Glamourous (Chenille Black). It is beyond perfect for my bed room.
  27. Posted by Teh Doll on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    If I win the rug would go right in front of my bed. I need something to jazz up my bedroom and this would be perfect.

    (Oh ps! It would go in my living room!!)
  31. Posted by Kim W on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    I just refinished all the original hardwood floors in my 1920s home (a DIY nightmare I will never do again--hire pros, people!) and would love to buy one of those plush diamond shag rugs to protect my living room floor at a housewarming!
  32. Posted by Kim Pincombe Cole on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    So hard to pick just one!
    The CRN-6010 (Dark Tan) from Crowne by Surya (http://plushrugs.com/surya/crowne/crn-6010/dark-tan/) would work well with the rich brown leather sofa & hammered copper table in our family room!

    I really need a new rug for my family/all purpose room. Something with a bit of style, like those Kilims you chose! This one would be perfect: http://plushrugs.com/safavieh/natural-kilim/nkm316a/brown-ivory/
  42. Posted by Kiki on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    So I've been reading your blog for a short while and I honestly cannot remember if I've ever said hello before. So hello! I just have to say that I adore your blog and knew it was a winner based on the design, photos, and content. I especially loved your post on bedding because I'm actually on the lookout for cute bedding right now. :)

    Anyway, I'd also looove a rug, too! This Cirrus one, to be exact. :)
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

      Aww, thank you Kiki!!!!
  43. Posted by Kiki on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    p.s. I totes put it in my bedroom, I'd love to add some dimension and texture to my floors! :)
  44. Posted by Lidy on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    Without a doubt, the dining room! I have been on the hunt for what seems like forever!

    XOXO
  45. Posted by Mari of crab+fish on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

    We desperately need a new rug in our dining room and I refuse to settle for some ho-hum textile. $300 would go a long way in making a stylish statement!!

  52. Posted by Matt Stringham on Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

    I would put this in either our dining room or our family room!
  53. Posted by Jenni on Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

    I'm totally on the black & white shaggy rug bandwagon right now, so the "Three Row Plush (natural)" rug is so up my alley! The cool thing is that, as a vegan, I don't buy wool, which makes it SO HARD to find cute rugs, but this one is NOT wool, which is so awesome!! I'm so excited to be introduced to a new source for rugs!
  54. Posted by Elisabeth on Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

    I'd love one for our kitchen!
  55. Posted by Jill C. on Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

    I would put this rug in the living room - or possibly my bedroom...i love the Aklim Shag Rug (Ivory)!

  65. Posted by Ginnie on Friday, January 31st, 2014

    Great giveaway! I'd use my rug under my desk - I've been searching for the perfect one:)
  66. Posted by Jen on Friday, January 31st, 2014

    Love your 'rug shopping by style' post! Here is another great neutral rug that won't overpower your space- but has enough interest to capture your attention, too! (I commented on Plush Rugs, too!)
  67. Posted by Jen on Friday, January 31st, 2014

    this rug is a BOLD stripe, adding graphic punch in a sophisticated neutral room. Bonus- hides stains easier!
  68. Posted by Jen on Friday, January 31st, 2014

    If I win this contest, this is the rug I will buy! It has just the right blend of contrasts: graphic, but subtle; high end, but casual. Perfect for my spot in the foyer!
  69. Posted by Zareth Acosta on Friday, January 31st, 2014

    I've been stalking your blog for 2 days, and I finally got to the start of the blog! I love your blog so much ♥
    I love the turquoise rug, I think it would look so awesome under my dining room table

      Awww, thanks Zareth! That means a lot.
  70. Posted by Trish on Friday, January 31st, 2014

    Definitely the living room... So over the too-small temporary one I have in there now!
  71. Posted by Brittany Koelmel on Friday, January 31st, 2014

    My rug would very easily go in the middle of my dining room. I currently have no rug there from lack of funds. One of these rugs would fit very nicely!!
  72. Posted by Lauren S. on Saturday, February 1st, 2014

    W are moving in April...AND adopting a puppy, so we need a rug that is durable and easy to clean (and probably in a darker color, to be safe).
  73. Posted by liz on Saturday, February 1st, 2014
