When we finished the girls’ room last fall, we had several of you ask if we had any plans to add an area rug. I was open to the idea–I’ve always been pro-rug on rug, as long as the wall-to-wall carpet is low-pile–but I didn’t want to rush laying something down.
However, the last time we got our carpets cleaned (we get them cleaned every 6 months to keep them under warranty), I noticed the carpet cleaners spent extra time in their room. And while the carpet came out squeaky clean and looking new, I thought, “It couldn’t hurt to lay down an area rug for extra protection.” It’s the same reason we have an area rug in the playroom. I found this beautiful, light brown, striped rug on eSaleRugs for just $89 and I was sold! It’s the perfect mix of interest, while still being quite neutral. It comes in a bunch of colors, too!
Along the same lines, we recently added a new page to our blog cataloging our favorite places to shop for home furnishings and decor, from lighting to art to pillows and more.
I thought adding a new rug to our home would be the perfect opportunity to share our top places to shop for area rugs with links to some favorites from each retailer below!

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
