New Rugs

Last week, I was wandering around Ross in search of some housewares on the cheap. I've been looking for a few small rugs for our front and back doors and the hallway between our sitting room and kitchen. I wanted something bright and fun, yet organic looking. When I found these rugs for $6.99 each, I knew my search was over. Even Z is a fan!

As you can see, I need to replace our fall welcome mat with something a little more springy

I realize "you get what you pay for" and these rugs won't last forever, but we're okay with that. We're from Texas afterall; we stomp around in muddy boots. No sense in wasting $100 on a rug that won't last more than a year anyway.

We're also in the market for a large rug for our living room that we actually want to splurge on but haven't had any luck finding one we both like....any suggestions? You ladies all have such fabulous taste! Any tips are greatly appreciated :)

  1. Love Ross! Those rugs look great! We actually purchased rugs from Lowes (or Home Depot, can't remember) that have been pretty good! Also from Ikea, but they're more for looks, not so much durability. Good luck!

  2. Love that you are brightening things up for spring! I'm so ready for spring/summer and bright colors. I just actually purchased a rug for my living room from Rugs USA for a fantastic price. I had never shopped through them before, but I was told about the amazing sales they've been having, and I ended up getting an 8x11 for just over $100!! I definitely did a happy dance. If you shop their sale, just enter the code they provide, and I would think for a smaller rug, you could get it for a steal. We've been really pleased with the quality too! Here's my post on the new rug if you want to check it out. Happy Shopping!!

  10. So colorful and cheery...love them for spring especially! I can't put any rug that isn't completely flat in front of my front door or it gets caught on the weather strip on the bottom of my door. Flat rugs just aren't as fun!

  11. Love your rugs...they are so springy...We got out rugs at Sam's Club. They have lasted so long and were reasonable. You might try TJ Maxx or Marshall's too.

  13. These are super cute.. I may be going to Ross today. For $6.99 no one can complain! Depending on how much you want to splurge you may want to check Anthropologie. That seems like it would go with your style if you are looking for "organic" type stuff.

  14. I am such a Ross girl, like you. I’m always there buying random cuteness for our house!
    Ok, totally got our huge area rug from BJ’s wholesale club. Very random but they were on sale for $80! You can’t beat that! Also do y’all have an Ollie’s by you? IDK if that’s worldwide or only a Baltimore thing….but I have gotten so many cute-vintage looking rugs from there at wonderful prices!
