It has been a long time since I have made an impulse buy for the home. Ever since my home spending hiatus, I have tried to be mindful of only making planned purchases. But, I must say, this end cap of colorful rugs stopped me in my tracks! After rounding up my 45 favorite rugs from 15 sources, I feel like I am rug-obsessed. I believe there is a perfect rug for every room!
I love bright color and bold patterns. Is it any surprise I took the turquoise and lime rugs home with me? When I bought them I wasn’t exactly sure how I would use them, but knew I would find a spot for them in my home. Each 30 x 48″ rug was only 29.99. I love the 30 x 48″ size…it is bigger than the standard 2′ x 3′ size that is widely available, but still small enough for kitchens and hallways.
They quickly found new homes in my home. The turquoise rug is the perfect replacement for the Nate Berkus bath rug I tried in my kitchen, which was a bit small and sadly shrank after washing making it even smaller.
I love the much bolder pattern and brighter color of this new rug. It pops right off the dark wood floors and helps break up all the wood tones in the kitchen. I’ll admit I tried the lime one in the kitchen first, but it just clashed with the wood cabinets. The turquoise compliments them.
The lime green rug found a home in the mud room. During the winter we use a dark brown utility rug in the mud room. The only thing it is good for is hiding dirt. When this spring finally rolled around, I was craving something bright and cheery for this space. The lime green graphic rug is so much better.
Fair warning on this one…it is not yellow. They call it yellow online, the tag on the end cap said yellow, and the packaging might have too. At best I would consider this color “grellow”. Really, it is lime green. I love it, but if you are looking for a sunny yellow, this rug won’t work.
I broke out the wide-angle lens to show you how these rugs sit in relation to each other. From certain vantage points you can see both rugs, but they are separate enough that they don’t compete with each other. The mud room is sort of tucked behind our kitchen leading into the garage.
Would you believe these two rugs are indoor/outdoor rugs? You would never know by looking at them or touching them. These rugs are available in blue, lime green, red, brown, and green, and in sizes up to 8′ x 10′ online. They are woven rugs. The package says the fibers are yarn-dyed to resist fading. They are soft and warm to the touch. I might have hugged them in the store and twirled around in slow motion :) Outdoor rugs = durable!
This is one home impulse buy I don’t think I will regret. I am super happy to have colorful, fun, durable rugs for my mud room and kitchen. Seriously, I get all giddy inside at the thought of taking these outside for a good hosing when they get dirty.
Are you using outdoor rugs inside your house yet? Besides these newest additions, my dining room sports a fabulous outdoor rug. I just love the durability!
