I have fallen back in love with my living room. Not that I ever didn’t love it, per se, but I was certainly getting bored with it.

Living Room Rug Makeover (And Giveaway!)

I toyed around with a new couch, painting over the grid wall, or replacing the coffee table. Nothing seemed to fit. The answer came in the form of a perfectly timed email from Mohawk Flooring, offering me the chance to try one of their area rugs.

Mohawk Flooring has such a huge variety that it took me forever to pick the perfect rug. I really love their Natural Field Linen pattern, but Mike talked me out of it because of dirty dog paws. Other favorites are the Becker Turquoise, Morocco Neutral, and Elegant Ikat.

I ended up choosing the Give and Take Kaleidescope in 8×10. Our last rug in this space was 5×7, and though it fit well, I took the educated risk that a bigger rug would help tie the room together better.

The rug arrived quickly and I unrolled it. There was no odor (like you sometimes get with new rugs) and the backing is a nice soft matting. I pulled the furniture out of the way and placed the rug just a few inches under the couch.

Lemhi immediately gave it his seal of approval.

I shoo-ed the dogs off and finished putting the living room back together.

I love the way the colors fit perfectly in the living room, and how it ties together all the furniture into one cohesive space. This is particularly tricky in our open-concept house – the living room can easily blend into the dining room which blends into the kitchen.
