I spend a lot of time answering source questions, especially “Where did you get that rug!?”, so I thought I’d compile a post with direct links to where we got each and every rug (this is the kind of post that will be updated over time).
The rug in our living room is the 10×14 Baxter Indigo rug from Crate and Barrel. It’s definitely the most expensive rug in our house (we paid $1500 after applying a coupon we purchased on eBay that covered 15%, or taxes and shipping). We rolled it out in April 2014 and it still looks brand new. It’s soft and thick and has good variance and color to it–like the best pair of blue jeans.
The shaggy number in our bedroom is the 9×12 Steven Alan Ombre Speckled Shag Wool Rug from West Elm purchased in June 2015. It’s moroccan inspired, extremely soft and a warm, cushy welcome under foot when rolling out of bed in the morning.
An oddly shaped room (our study has a rounded wall of windows) called for a non-traditional shaped rug. This faux hide (Grand Canyon Camel & Beige Area rug by Loloi Rugs) we added in May 2015 was just the ticket. It’s soft and adds subtle interest and an organic element in a room that could easily get busy.
The rug in our laundry room we purchase in March 2015 and it’s a 3’4 x 5′ Baluch Persian rug from eSaleRugs. Although it was a one of a kind (so obviously not still available), I wanted to link to it so you could see other related items that are still available. I paid $119 for it and it came with a free rug pad. I especially love the modern design and that its “primary color is navy blue.” It’s a way to easily introduce other colors in our home, while threading rooms together with our primary home color–navy.
The (in progress) playroom all got started from this 8×10 kilim. The Skyline Rug from Rejuvenation. It feels playful and sophisticated at the same time, which is exactly what we were looking for in this soon-to-be shared playroom/media room space.
The rug in Faye’s room we snagged in January 2014 has always been a little small for my liking. We got a 5×8, and should have went with a 6×9 <—better photos in that old post. It’s from West Elm (no longer sold, but all of their rugs are on sale right now!) and I love the rich purple color and the vintage charm, even if it’s faux vintage. When we re-purpose this room, it will get a new rug.
The little rug in our hall bath (I believe it’s around a 2’x4′) is from an etsy shop called Oh Comely Vintage. Again, it has navy blue in it (always included in my search) and a rusty orange that’s truly beautiful. I believe it was around $130.
The White Rag Area Rug in Greta’s room is from Wayfair. It was very inexpensive (a plus for kids’ rooms!) and brightened the floor while adding in some speckled color. Also, this is just one example of how rug on rug action can work. With so much carpeted floor space, it was begging for interest on that plane. An area rug to break up all that carpet was the answer.
The 3’4×6’8 antique caucasian kazak tribal hand knotted wool rug in the kitchen was an eBay find and cost me just $147, but a lot of time. I’ve discovered that’s kind of the formula with eBay. I fell in love with so many rugs that were out of my budget, but this one (notice the blue again!) ended up being from a seller that doesn’t typically sell rugs (I just went to check them out and there are three men’s coats in the shop) and the price reflects that. The search was 100% worth it.
The entry rug needed to be really large (around the 5×14 range). After a lot of searching, we settled on beautiful and practical FLOR carpet tiles. We got the exact size we needed and this Suit Yourself design (the color is Linen) is a part of their Better Than Sisal category–great for high traffic area, cool design, soft under feet (and paws) and hi, washable.
I hope this was/is useful! We are working on a full shop this house directory for everything you see in all of these rooms. When I mentioned I was compiling a rug post, more rug-related questions started pouring in. I was going to answer them all in this post, but since this is more of a source post, I’ll answer all of those questions later this week!
