After the work that went into the last post, and the amazing response from you guys (Thank you so much!), I thought this would be a perfect time to offer you a giveaway, and so did my new sponsor Rugs USA.
They let me pick my favorite rug to give away to you all, and like I’ve said before, far be it from me to deprive my readers of free stuff! Especially before the holidays when rooms need zhushing up and wallets are emptying daily.
I scoured the RUGS USA site, and found many awesome rugs for your consumption, and at really great prices. Shags, animal prints and hides… very on trend stuff happening over there.
I pulled together a few of my favorite rugs in order to highlight their awesomeness by portraying them in their natural habitats: and by that I mean fashion to room moodboards! What else?!?!
First and most importantly I chose the most classic of all possible trends, the leopard print, which has been around for ages and never looks old. Leopard is having a particularly awesome MOMENT right now. I even used a leopard print rug wall to wall in a project I did for my in laws HERE! I love leopard because its genderless, its somehow both feminine and masculine and also really sexy, but elegant. Leopard print is the jack of all trades! Plus its multi tonal so it matches a lot of different colors… Like I said, leopard is having a moment. Embrace it by winning this actual rug! YAY!
Next I chose this Berber rug (HERE, less than $500 for a 5′ x 7′!!)… made famous by Jenna Lyons in her now for sale Brooklyn townhouse. A Berber rug is like a shag rug and a Madeline Weinrib rug mated and had a little design baby… its soft and gushy, and yet it also packs the visual punch of a graphic print!
And last, the ever popular and black and white chevron, as seen in a room by Jonathan Adler below.(HERE, $320 for an 8′ x 10′) It’s poppy, its fun and you just CANNOT be sad in a room with a chevron rug. In yesterday’s post, Caroline used a huge Chevron rug to ground the different areas in her living room and it looked AWESOME!
OK!!! So to win the leopard rug…. Follow Rugs USA on Twitter or Facebook, and leave a comment below telling me how much you love leopard, and berber and whatever else you want…. or yea… just leave a comment! And does it go without saying that you should all be following me on twitter and Facebook too? Although, I warn ya, I tweet a lot.
I will pick the winner next week!!! Good luck everyone!
QUESTION: Would you all prefer the berber? EVERY comment has been about the berber! I chose the leopard for you, but maybe our friends over at RUG USA will let us swap it for the berber? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!!!
