Cold Floors and a Mohawk Giveaway

Somehow, despite living in so many places over the last decade of marriage, we’ve never owned a real rug.

Well, actually, I take that back. In our first house in Texas, the entire house had wood floors (which is not Bart’s favorite thing in the world) and after a couple of years, we bought a rug and brought it home.

But we had plaid couches and any pattern on a rug just made the room look like a nightmare, so after five minutes of looking at it, we rolled it back up and returned it.

Which means we’ve owned a rug for 30 minutes of the last ten years.

But when we moved into this house, and the spaces were just so huge and the entire downstairs was all wood, we knew we needed a rug.

Plus, because of the way we divided up the family room, we need a rug to ground the seating area and subdivide it from the play area.

We went back and forth about a black versus a white rug, but eventually decided on black. And I LOVE it.

The instant we unrolled it, we were convinced.

I love how reasonably priced Mohawk Rugs are (ours is an enormous 8×10 and it was $173) and that they are made in the USA.

And because I’m seriously in rug heaven over here (#ilovemymohawkrug), I’m super happy to team up with Mohawk to give away a rug.

    That rug really does make all the difference in the definition of the room. I have a Mohawk rug already, I bought the Caravan Medallian printed runner for the kitchen in our Airstream and haven't regretted it once. It's the perfect color to compliment and at the same time, makes the place more comfortable.

    Wow, crazy what a difference that rug makes! I owned one cheap rug from Target, and it got covered in cat hair and was impossible to clean. Someday I would like to own nice things, haha.

    That is an amazing price. I've never heard of them. I did a ton of searching for our rug, I wanted to circle rug so I know that limited my options. And I'm curious where that transportation map is from- London?
