Rugs are expennnnnsive. Everyone who has ever shopped for one knows this. Old or new, they are a pretty penny but truthfully, worth the investment. I never really realized how much my apartment would be transformed with the right size and amount of rugs around the floors. While of course they're a practical way to keep the floors clean and interesting, they add a great pop of, drum roll please, color. Here are the four new (affordable) rugs in my apartment that I am loving.
This rug fit my living room to a T. And while I was a bit hesitant about getting a pink rug, I could not be more happy with my decision. The pink tones are just subtle enough and are balanced out well with the reds and blues. It's incredibly versatile and a great alternative to some of the price Turkish rugs I've seen in the past. It also compliments this navy Moroccan pouf that I have and love. (Similar here & here.)
This. Runner. I want to make it very clear that I don't typically gravitate toward pinks and purples but this runner was the absolutely welcome exception to my rule. Featured here in this Instagram I just posted, you can see the colors are more and lavender and more subtle then in the photo below. I love it and it's the perfect size for a hallway or entryway.
For my kitchen sink area, I knew that I needed to get something that was on the darker side. Between cooking at the stove and unloading the dishes, there’s a lot of potential for stains to show up on a rug. I love the large, more modern print on this rug and the other color options are equally as fun. The best part, this rug is less than $70. Win.
I absolutely love navy and orange together so this rug immediately caught my eye. The pale robin egg blue coupled with the subtle tones of yellow were perfect for under my dining room table. The rug lays slightly under my console (pictured below) that has two large navy garden stools and ginger jars to compliment it. I also added the luxe Hermés lacquer tray from The Kellogg Collection to tie it all together.
A special thanks to my friends over at Rugs USA for providing my home with these beautiful rugs. While this post was done in collaboration, as always, all of my selections and opinions are my own. Where's your go-to rug shop? Do you buy new or vintage?
Either way, happy hunting!
