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.)
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.
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.
Like rich, faux fall flowers and white berries in a white ironstone pitcher.
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!
