Rug Hunt


We’ve sloooowly been getting rugs for our house. We finally got one for the living room (this one) and it feels like pure luxury (I waited so long for a good sale to get it). I swear Eleanor is much more content playing by herself all of a sudden because of it. She has a place to sit and play with her toys and June to lay and roll around comfortably. It’s amazing how one seemingly small addition to a room can make all the difference. I also recently got a few rugs for Eleanor’s room too, fingers crossed it makes her room a more inviting place to play in now too. Her room was a little harder for me to figure out the right rug for because it has a lot of weird angles and walls. In the end, a lovely soft flokati round rug was the way to go and a darling handmade, wool rug like this one, only a badger, for right by her bed.

Now I’m on the hunt for a colorful kilim rug for our spare room. It’s a small-ish room, at least for all that we use it for. It’s our workhorse room. It’s an office, where our projector is for movie/tv show watching/wii playing, and a guest bedroom (our couch in there turns into a bed). The walls are all painted white, the desk in there is mostly white and some light-stained wood, and the sofa-bed is a charcoal grey color. There are a few colorful pillows on the couch, and some green plants in there as well, but mostly it’s a neutral room. This is why I was thinking a colorful kilim rug might be nice. The key is big enough, soft enough, and not having to sell a limb to afford it…

I’ve been looking on overstock, ebay, eSale rugs, and kaya kilims mostly…

Where do you guys look for rugs? I would LOVE more ideas!
