Personal Shopper: An Area Rug for Nicole's Growing Family

Nicole writes: "Hello!! My personal shopper request for is an 8x10 rug for my living room. Something soft (as we are expecting our first baby early next year) but nothing too expensive because I have 2 dogs, $250 is really the most I'd like to spend. My living room walls are a light tan with one light blue-gray wall, the furniture is black leather, and we have beach-type artwork on the walls. I like something fun, nothing to old fashioned looking- I don't care for Oriental style rugs. Please help! -Nicole"

Hey Nicole! I'm Found of You. This was tough! I did find a few rugs in the size you wanted for the price you wanted that would go with your decor and hide dog hair and be baby appropriate. I know that #5 is out of your budget, but it's so awesome for a family and it's my favorite and you should just get it.

1 - Fad Plaid Rug ($250)
2 - Urban Retreat Blocks Starch Biscuit Rug By Mohawk Select ($250)
4 - Ikea Alvine Rand ($179)
5 - CB2 letterpress rug ($300)
6 - Urban Retreat Mirage Biscuit Starch Rug By Mohawk Select ($250)

Desperate for a Rug

Posted on 10.03.11 at 1:02 PM

Ok. I feel like I'm reading about myself. I am in the exact.same.situation. I have been searching for a new area rug for at least 3 months with no luck at all. My walls are a light tan, I have one light blue/gray wall, my budget is $250, and it needs to be soft for future kiddie-- all the same specs. The only differences are that I'm looking for a 5x8 and my couch is a light tan so I'm looking for a brown rug. But my coffee table is brown so it needs to be brown with a pattern, specifically a geometric pattern. I've ordered both of these ( and and LOVE the patterns but they are very rough and I had to return them. Outblush if you could help me I would be eternally grateful.
