Rug Giveaway!

**This giveaway is now closed. The winner has been contacted via email.

Hello there! I’m off at the Haven Conference this week so I’ve got a few fun posts coming for you – and I’m kicking it off with a GREAT giveaway.

The folks at Rugs USA contacted me about a giveaway and asked if I’d like one to try out myself and I was all HECK YEAH and WHOOHOO and YOU DON’T HAVE TO ASK ME TWICE!

They have been so wonderful to work with, and that’s saying a lot because I could not decide which rug I wanted to save. my. life. I mean, how often does a free rug come my way? Uh, never.

I wanted to go a little bit outside my comfort zone and get something I normally wouldn’t, so I ended up with the Moroccan Trellis rug in charcoal:

Rugs USA Homespun Moroccan Trellis Charcoal Rug

It came super fast, and as soon as I rolled it out I LOVED it. I loved the color, the design, everything.

I had planned on putting it in the family room and when I laid it out I loved how it looked against the sectional:

It definitely has a more contemporary vibe I was going for. Thing is, I realized right away that my more traditional pillows and drapes didn’t really go with it. The red pillows work great with our old rug, but with this one it looks a little Fourth of July-ish. :)

So it was either change everything else or move the rug, so I took the cheap easy route and moved the rug. I realized it will work in a couple spots in the basement (eventually) but it ended up in the dining room turned library:

For now anyway. :) It may move again, just because I’m not sure it will work with our open living room (and the natural rug we have in there.)

I do know I LOVE this rug – the color is a lovely dark gray, almost a blue tone. It’s wool but it does NOT shed. Halleluiah!!

Here’s a few of the rugs I was trying waffling back and forth on, and a couple others I think are too cool (you can get to them by clicking on the name):

Fallon:

158FAL1007

Frontier:

158FT40SLV

Trans Ocean Chains:Trans Ocean Spello Chains Natural Rug

Quinta Moderno Trellis:

Rugs USA Quinta Moderno Trellis Ash Rug

Safavieh Dhurries:

Safavieh Dhurries DHU552 Light Green Rug

Boardwalk Stripe:

The American Home Rug Company Beach Boardwalk Stripes Sand Rug

I LOVE that striped rug!! It comes in a TON of different colors too!

Now here’s the best part – the lovely folks at Rugs USA are offering one of you $150 towards an (in stock) rug of your choice! Their prices are pretty fantastic, so you could easily get a smaller rug any of the styles I showed you for that amount. Or if you’d like to order a larger rug, you can use it towards that.

Awesome!!

Here’s how to enter to win:
1. Leave a comment here. What’s up chicken butt?

2. Visit the Rugs USA site here. Check out their rugs and come back to let us know which one you love the most.
