Fall into the Holidays ~ Kitchen


Welcome to FALL INTO THE HOLIDAYS, a four week series where we'll be sharing
 ideas for sprucing up our homes before the holiday season kicks into high gear.
 Our lovely hostess Lisa @ Shine Your Light came up with the idea by asking friends what
 they'd most like to see on blogs - hands down, simple, do-able ideas were the favorite!
So that's our goal - and this week we're focusing on the kitchen.  
Don't miss my talented friends at the end of the post, you'll want to pop over and check
 out their fun ideas too!    

You guys this is one of those, "I can't believe I waited so long to do this" items.
It's been three and a half years since I did our kitchen update for the One Room Challenge.
I LOVED the vibrant flat weave wool rug I chose, but sadly it was a maintenance nightmare,
and didn't last at our house. It attracted Golden Retriever hair like flies to dog doo!  


  In the meantime we lived with this BLAH brown, low maintenance natural
fiber rug that wore like iron and hid ALL the things! And, when I wanted to
change it up, I flipped it over! Yep, reversible to the other BLAH brown side!
If that wasn't enough, the edges started looking ratty and one corner curled a little that
 you tripped over if it wasn't strategically placed.

I've finally found something that I think will work, this medallion rug is $30, and has 
great reviews.  It's washable, I haven't had a washable rug for a zillion years, I didn't even
know they made them anymore. I'll let you know how it goes.

I love that it has the vibe of this beautiful rug...



Thanks for stopping by friends, hope you're inspired to make a little change.
We'll be back next Tuesday sharing more ideas.

Don't miss these friends' ideas!

Ooooh I love that medallion rug in there!!! It ties in so well with your valance and chair backs! I still can't stop staring at that amazing hood of yours!

Love love love the new rug - and I bet it hides your sweet girl's fur well pretty well too. You always find the best things! I need a runner for my kitchen, now you've got me thinking that spruce up needs to happen before the holidays!

I love it! It adds such a pretty pop! I've been obsessing over that Magnolia rug but now I'll be copying your Target find! Thanks for sharing.

Ha! We too have been making design decisions around a Golden Retriever with our daughter's pup living with us now. Just told hubby earlier today that I am so glad we hadn't done our floors yet because if he is even contemplating another one once she moves out with Henley, I will NEVER go dark!! Love the medallion rug. Currently looking for a few hall rugs myself.

What a pretty choice, I love the pattern you chose! Washable rugs are so nice in the kitchen!
