Can you believe it?! We finally added some color to the house! It was time. As you guys know we have a ton of white in our house. And although I do like things white and bright, lately I’ve just been feeling like a little color would add so much warmth to our house. Making it feel more like a home and not just a house.
In general, I felt all the white and blue in our house had a winter feel and with spring coming up I wanted a bit of a refresh! So I jumped on The Home Depot‘s website because they have a crazy good rug selection and felt bold enough to select pink as the color I was looking for for our new family room rug. When I first told Kevin I was searching for a pink rug, all the color from his face faded. Ha! He was terrified at what I was going to pick out. But that didn’t last long because I found the absolute perfect rug pretty quickly. We have a pretty big space in our family room so I was able to search for large rugs only that had pink in them. I actually found two options that I liked at first. This was my second option. I should have gotten both rugs and he actually liked the more pink rug better! As did I! The other one is beautiful too it’s just that the one we chose felt like such a statement and felt very inviting.
Another reason I went to The Home Depot’s website to find a rug is because they just have really good prices. I went to one other website, which I won’t name, but I was blown away at how expensive the rugs were! Who has over $1000, $2000, $3000 to spend on a rug?! That’s just insanity to me. So when I found this one measuring 12.6 x 15 ft for $500 I was pumped! And that’s for a massive rug! If you get a more standard size rug (8×10) you can get it for just over $200. A 5×7 is only $134!!!
And maybe pink isn’t your thing. Ha! And that’s fine – they have so many other really pretty designs so I’m linking some of my favorites below. And all the ones below are on sale for 20% off right now! In fact, they have a huge selection of rugs on sale for 20% off so you guys should totally check them out. A pretty, colorful rug is a great way to refresh a space in your home for spring! I am even thinking about a new rug for our formal living area (I can’t resist a good sale!). Which rug below do you guys think we should get? Post the link or name in the comments below! I love when you guys help me design!
Speaking of the pink rug what do you guys think?! I’m dying to know! I love that it’s not only beautiful but it’s also really soft and thicker than the last rug I had in our family room. It’s so soft that we got rid of our play mat in the family room and put it in the play area. With our old rug, we needed it on top because Riley falls a lot because he’s learning to be more mobile right now. But since this new rug is so “cushion-y” we don’t need a play mat anymore which is awesome! One less eyesore from the kiddos in the family room. I know in these pictures it looks super tidy. And we try to keep it that way as much as we can. But let’s face it, kids toys are everywhere all the time! For these photos, I put away some of the bigger things and threw all the toys in those ottomans. I can’t recommend storage ottomans enough!
