I just made my first rug purchase for the new house! My inspiration was from this post, which I found on Pinterest:
I love the lime green door (which I plan to copy in my new house) and I love that rug with all the summery colors. While I loved the rug, I didn't love the price-tag so much. So, thanks to Fab.com, a new website I've recently discovered, I found this rug:
Fab Habitat. It's made from recycled polypropylene straws, so I feel like I'm being green. Since it's plastic, it's mold and mildew resistant and really easy to clean. You just hose it off or wipe it down with a wet cloth if it gets dirty, which is perfect for a kitchen/laundry room. And at $33 for a 4x6 rug, you can't beat the price! They have all kinds of other indoor/outdoor rugs in cute designs. I plan to cut it into 2 rugs so I can have one in the kitchen, and one in the laundry. Two rugs for the price of one... I like it!
