Woohoo, it’s Friday friends!  Who’s excited?  This girl is.  I could get used to 3 day work weeks (I took vacay on Tues.)!  It’s no surprise that I found a new home design element to obsess over this past week.  And this week that element was rugs!  When we got our hardwood floors refinished, we were told not to put rugs down for 3 weeks… and now that the 3 weeks is up, we still haven’t bought any rugs to put down yet.  I’m thinking of putting one in the entryway, dining room, hearth room and eat in kitchen.  My plan is to use those rugs to brighten up the spaces and make it feel more like a cozy home of ours.  Here’s a few I’ve been eyeing…

i am loving the colors and detail of this wool finnia rug!  what a great pop of color to any room!

if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that i love lace and doilies!  i mean look at my banner~

loving the vintage charm of this faded rose printed rug

this simple dwell studio rug caught my eye b/c of the color, simplicity and design!

yes yes yes, i need this romantic floral scarf rug!  the flowers and colors are SO beautiful together, don’t you agree?

chevron, enough said, you know how obsessed i am with this pattern
and you know i couldn’t go through this post without an alphabet soup rug so perfect for a nursery! ;)

Is your home filled with rugs?  Do you put them on hardwood floors or carpet too?  Have any suggestions for good rug stores?

P.S. Have you entered the Yellow Plum Blossoms GIVEAWAY?

    Right now we’re in a one bedroom apartment so we don’t have any rugs, or really the space for them. but I love that faded vintage rose one that you have. Just stunning. Oh wait, we do have 2 rugs, in our bathroom HAHA.

    Hope you find some beauties to accentuate your gorgeous house!

    These rugs are gorgeous! We’re actually on the hunt for some new area rugs. The Dwell one is my favorite – it goes with my aesthetic :)

    we have a giant rug in our living room, honestly, for covering a few stains from when i’d drop food on the carpet! ;)

    I love the alphabet one! Happy weekend, friend!

    I LOVE your rug picks Sandy! I’m not much of a decorator (other than decorating myself with clothes!) but I would like to spruce up my house a little with that first rug you picked or the chevron one!

    I loooooove the alphabet rug! I wish we had more money to spend on our daughter’s room. It isn’t at all how I’d like it to be. :( It’s not bad.. but it’s just not right yet!
