The struggle to find the perfect family rug is real


I have been counting down the days until Black Friday because I have a few things on my mind that I want to buy… And this gal wants it on SALE!! I’ve asked a few friends what they have on their lists for this week and they’re all like, “oh nothing” or “I don’t do Black Friday.” Ahem, I know the truth. Women. Be. Shopping.

Anyhoo, first and foremost on my want list, is a new rug for the family room. Look, my heart wants a Beni Ourain, ivory, wool beauty but I know that my reality is just not there. I will go freaking crazy trying to keep that rug looking decent. So, I need something with enough color variation to hide spills, low pile so that I can run a carpet cleaner over it 1-2 times a year, and obviously, it has to look nice and be affordable. I’ve been eyeing those vintage knock-offs that I don’t particularly love, but that really do check off a bunch of boxes for me. Do you think they look so fake that they’re bad?? OMG, I DO NOT WANT CHEESY. I really love this

I want background noise, not a show-stealer. Y’know? I’ve been digging around on-line for the last few weeks and I think I’ve pretty much narrowed it down to these four. Maybe you could help me pick one?!?

This one is more of a shag, which would be great in the comfort department – but keeping it clean???? Hmm….

Not the most exciting post ever, but it does help to see the options in the space… Looking at them now I’m definitely leaning one way.

What say you??

Have a wonderful week shopping and chomping!!
