Tips for a Stylish & Kid-Friendly Space {Rug Sources}

Happy Easter Monday!  Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous in our neck of the woods, which made for a really lovely Easter.  Despite the fact that March is early for Easter and this has been the longest winter ever, the sun was out and the temperatures hit the upper 60s!

My family visited last week too.  We hadn't seen them in three months, so it was really great to be together.

All that to say, life has been busy, but I've been meaning to share some sources for the types of kid-friendly rugs I suggested in my last post.   These are really just scratching the surface of what's available, but I hope this is helpful.  I didn't include oriental rugs, even though I think they are great choices.  Frankly, the best way to find these without spending a fortune is by frequenting estate sales, auctions, even yard sales, and yes, Craigslist.  I tried to only include rugs that were less than $500 (and most are much less!)  Oh, and one other tip--it never hurts to check your local carpet retailers and get a quote for a custom cut from one of their remnants, particularly if you need a custom size.

  1. Thank you, thank you! We are on a mad search for a rug like one of these-- glad to have some more tips on retailers! (AND, Happy Easter-- glad you got to celebrate it with your family. And that it was warm...Virginia was cold!)
