Use Area Rugs on Carpet to Spruce Up Your Space {Mohawk Giveaway}

Thank you to the fab folks at Mohawk for sending me the rug to review!  All opinions are 100% real and absolutely mine!Use Area Rugs on Carpet to Spruce Up Your SpaceDid you know that you can use area rugs on carpet to spruce up your space?  You totally can…I swear, it’s life changing!

It’s a funny thing living in a home that you love in most ways, but detest in others.  I guess we all live like that a little.  I have slowly made changes to our home to make it ours, but there has been one thing that I knew I couldn’t change…our living room carpet.  Here’s the thing…we just bought it a little over a year ago.  We lived with the ugliest berber carpet for years, and when we decided to make the change, we went with carpet.  We considered hardwood, but we have pets, and lots of traffic in and out, and I did not want to have to mop every five minutes.  So, this is what we have.  Don’t get me wrong, I love it!  It’s so cozy and soft, and my feet rarely get cold in the winter.  The only thing that has bugged me for the past year is the sea of brown.  I just don’t love it.  I love light and colorful, brown?  Not so much.

Mom-4-Real-Living-Room11This is the before…don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty, and totally me, but that carpet just bugged me.  I needed to break it up.

Use an Area Rug to Break Up a Carpeted Room

I needed for the room to feel more put together and cozy.  And, well, this rug totally did the trick.  It’s the Mohawk Home Dennell Butter Pecan from Home Depot, and it brought the two sides of my room, which felt like they were an entire football field length of brown carpeting together!

Change the Look of Your Room With a Beautiful Area Rug from MohawkMatt’s chair, which just so happens to be brown, doesn’t look like it’s sinking in quicksand.  It looks like it fits a little (believe me, it’s next on my list of things to change), on the other side of our living room.

Everybody Loves the new RugNow, everyone is happy!  Kate loves it, and our horse-dog Blaine thinks he just got a new over sized dog bed because of how soft it is!  He’ll definitely have to fight the rest of us for it!

I have to tell you, this rug makes me completely happy!  Not just because it solved my problem, but because it shows that you don’t have to buy all new floors to really change the look of your room!  If you can’t buy new carpeting or hardwood floors, shop for a rug…it really does work!

    Hi, I’m thinking of ordering this same rug! How has it held up? Is the binding around the edge unraveling at all? I don’t have a blog, but you can email me. Thanks!

      Hi, Lisa! It has held up extremely well…even with our monster dog and kids running in and out constantly. I definitely recommend! ~ Jessica

    Hey! Your home decor is amazing!
    Where did you get your cozy sofa?

    • says

      Hi, Olesya! Thank you! The sofa is originally from Haverty’s, but the slipcover is from IKEA, and they have a couch just like it that is inexpensive. It’s the Ektorp!
