One of the easiest ways to update a space for the spring season is to change out an existing area rug and replace it with a new updated style and color rug. This may sound obvious, but many of my friends never think to switch out their rugs. The beauty of having an area rug is the ability to change it whenever you want. I avoid wall to wall carpet for this very reason. It makes me happy to switch up a room with each passing season.
It gets expensive to change out furniture – trust me from experience. ;)

There are so many different kinds of rugs – indoor/outdoor, cotton, wool, and jute just to name a few. I love all and each one has it’s purpose. Depending on what mood you’re in, you can add color, a fun pattern, or a soft feeling to a space by introducing a new rug to the room.

The bright white rug sitting in my old dining room gave me the much needed contrast against my dark floors. This wool piece is a little more luxurious than the cotton counterpart. I love it’s soft look and feel.
I have since moved this rug to my master bedroom and love it there. I didn’t purchase it for this space originally so this is the perfect example of the flexibility that area rugs offer.

With my new home, I have gone a little more softer in tone than in my previous home. I found that I’m loving neutrals with soft blush accents, grays and whites especially. The Icelandia Pink Slipper Wool Rug from Annie Selke is the perfect touch to add to my family room for spring. It contrasts beautifully with my white walls yet compliments my soft grey sofa. Surprisingly, this is the blush counter part to the White Icelandia rug laying in my bedroom! I rarely choose the same thing twice… I obviously love the style and design. The Icelandia has a beautiful sheen and the subtle grey stripes in both rugs compliment everything in both spaces.

Spring is all about light and bright colors – I introduced this sky blue tone to my former family room space and everyone loved the tranquil color. The tiny herringbone pattern was a nice detail that kept it fresh and classic.
