A rug can make such a difference to a room. We have laminate floors in both our living room and dining room, which are easy to clean and look after, but which can feel a little hard and unforgiving. On a cold winter day ( or night) you just want to feel comfortable and warm. A rug can really make the difference then.
I was asked to pick out one of the great selection of shaggy rugs from the Rug Retailer to make a real change for the better to my home this winter. I was spoilt for choice as there is a wide range to choose from, but I picked out this brightly coloured rug. It makes you feel warm and cosy with its bright, orangey-red colour. It’s certainly given our living room a new lease of life too as the colour lifts the room. This is one of the room’s on our to decorate list, but the list is long and funds don’t stretch far enough at the moment, so a rug is a great, relatively inexpensive way to make your decor feel fresh and new this season.
Another favourite thing about it is that the rug is so soft and shaggy. This really adds to the comfort factor, whether you are walking around barefoot or in your cosy slippers. That extra cushioning is great if you are sitting on the rug to play a game or do a jigsaw together on the coffee table. It’s super soft and I can’t resist giving it a stroke. The last couple of weeks have been very cold generally and we are up on a hill which makes the chill even worse. So it’s been great to bring some warm colour into our home and a little cosy luxury under foot to help us get through the long, cold, winter months.
