New Dining Rugs for Cozy Warmth

Goodbye bamboo script mats. Hello new dining rugs! I’m adding cozy warmth to my home this fall and winter by replacing my bamboo mats with cushy rugs. (This post contains affiliate links.)

Brown and White New Dining Rug

 

Since today is the first Saturday of the month – it means it’s Cozy Living Saturday where my blogging friends and I share how we make life cozy! So this is the perfect time to share the new rugs I’ve added to my dining room. After scouring through many options, I settled on a brown and white rug that’s purposely faded in spots to look a bit vintage.

I toyed with the idea of choosing a rug with more color, but feared that would limit my choices for table settings and vignettes. So I opted for brown and white to match the dining table.

New Dining Rugs in Farmhouse Dining Room

 

 This room is long and narrow, which is why it makes a better dining room than living room (what it used to be). I ordered the 9’x12′ Asheville taupe rug by Darby Home Co. on Wayfair. It comes in several sizes. So I ordered two!

Since the 9’x12′ rug doesn’t fully stretch across the room, I ordered the same rug in a 4’x6′ size. This area of the dining room serves as my entrway. A lot of older homes don’t have an official entryway so you have to get creative.

I’ve still got warm and cozy fall touches in both the entryway and dining room.

On the sideboard in the dining room, my favorite brown bottles display a simple floral arrangement from Pottery Barn.

Hubby found this cool Chinese flowering plant at the nursery but it’s not a perennial in our area. It was out by the pond but I brought it inside once it’s leaves started changing color. It’s the perfect hue for fall decorating.

It has the daintiest of flowers in a burgundy color that I’ve used for my fall decor this year.

The new dining rugs add softness and warmth to both the entryway and dining space. I was so happy with them that I ordered a new rug for the sitting room. I’ll share that soon!

  1. Wonderful rugs and your fall touches are still pretty.

    Can you believe it’s November already?

  2. I love the idea of having two rugs – they define the different spaces so well and are so cohesive. We are the same, I always go for a neutral base, vignettes are just easier that way. 😉

  3. Beautiful post! I love your style and I love your blog. Thank you!

  4. LOVE the way you’ve defined the spaces with two rugs, but that they still flow together so seamlessly!

  5. Your new rugs add so much warmth. So pretty and cozy, Jennifer. xx

  6. Your new rugs are so pretty! Such beautiful colors and Fall touches.

  7. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Love the neutral color of the rugs so you can always add more color when you want. They are so very pretty and cozy.

  8. Love the rug and I agree sticking with the neutral tones will give you more flexibility when it comes to decorating with pops of color. Thanks for sharing the link, I’m always on the hunt for a good rug find.

  9. Lovely post Jennifer, it makes me want to stop by for a cup of tea and curl up under your cozy throw!
    I just finished a book you would love called “The Little Book of Hygge” the Danes have the cozy factor, the Hygge, all figured out. They would definitely give you the thumbs up!👍🏻
    Stay warm and thanks for sending us these wonderful blog posts. They are such a treat to wake up to.

  10. It looks perfect for your dining area. I love the two rugs too

  11. The brown and white choice, as well as defining space with the two rug sizes is absolutely perfect. I’ve never been a fan of the bamboo script mats, although I know they have been very popular. With the addition of the soft and cozy rugs, your old home must be feeling so pretty. I’m a moody color person, so I’m really loving the browns and burgandy accents together. You’ve done amazing things to your home the past year or so and I can’t wait to see what you do next.

  12. The rugs are perfect for your cozy area. I’m so glad rugs are in favor now….rugs are so versatile. ENJOY!!

  13. It looks so warm and cozy, Jennifer. I love the rugs, as well as the chair and ottoman. Such a pretty room.

  14. well….. we know who’s feet are going to be warm and cozy this winter! love the changes in your space Jennifer.

  15. Love the Rugs! Your home just gers better and better.❤

  16. I love your new rugs!!! The colors are so warm and “cozy”!!! I’m so glad that rugs are now more affordable, so we can make a change from time to time without breaking the bank!
