Summer Rugs

 I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend!  
I am still trying to catch up on Blogging 
and my sleep!  
I can't believe how fast 
this month has flown by.

Early in the year, 
I removed the rugs from the Living Room 
and the Dining Room.  
Mr. Beaux took them to be cleaned 
at a local rug cleaning store.  
The lady at the shop commented to him 
"Oh, I bet your wife is swapping out 
her winter rugs for the summer rugs".  
Now while this makes Perfect sense 
to me, he had a hard time grasping this concept.  
A rug is a rug to him!  
Here is the new "Summer" rug 
that I found for the Living Room.  
It's from Pottery Barn 
and it was, and still is, on sale.  
It is a Seagrass Rug, 
color bound with a natural colored twill border.  
I talked Mr. Beaux into it because this 
same rug was featured
That's all I had to say...
I wanted to order a 9X12 
but they were out of stock.  
Of course, they are in stock now...
But, I wanted it to be here 
when I had all of my company.  
So, 8X10 had to do for the time being...
It still has a few lumps and bumps that I am working out... 
I think it really grounds the space 
and creates a conversation area.  
And I love the soothing neutrals.  
Here is a sneak peak 
at my Hearth Room Summer Rug 
and tomorrow's post...

Do you switch your rugs out for the seasons?  

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

Oh I love the rug, it is gorgeous. I am so wanting to get rid of my carpet, install hardwoods and then use area rugs. Yours look fabulous.

I have a rug just like that in our sunroom. My mother in law gave it to us, It used to be in her sunroom.

I love the seagrass rug. I do not change mine because I use seagrass and natural fibers all year long. They are my fave types. I love the feel of them under my bare feet. LOL! Have a great day, Cindy!

Cynthia said...

What gorgeous rugs and rooms. I don't switch out our rugs. Too expensive for us. I ten to buy wool rugs.

Love your rug! I am thinking I want a new one for our dining room. Indoor/Outdoor rugs do so well in our home with two boys and three pets so I am kinda stuck to those but would love a seagrass at some point in time.

I love those rugs. In another world where my husband doesn't get so much input on the decorating, I would buy those for my dining room too! LOL!
