Hello my friends! I’ve always said paint is the number one way to make a big
impact in a room for the least amount of money, but fabric or textiles are a very close second. Drapes, bedding and rugs can add color or texture and will go a
long way to making a room look a lot different.
finishing touches to our master that really lightened it up, but still left it feeling super cozy:

The bedding helped to lighten things up, but lately I’ve been craving some
more color in here. Plus, even though we don’t wear shoes in the house much,
the rug got dirty so easily.
here, so I did some looking around online and found this colorful option (the Loloi Skye in sea/rust) that looked perfect:
But I kept hesitating — it was a lot of color for me! I kept going back to
it over and over though.
family room rug. Loloi is a higher end brand and usually expensive, but these are
from their Loloi II line and are much less. There’s a reason they’re so
inexpensive, and I’ll touch on that in just a bit.
After going back to this one over and over, I finally ordered it late last
year. When it was delivered it was even more colorful in person…and I
hesitated again. 😂 It sat wrapped up for a couple weeks before I rolled it
Thankfully I absolutely LOVED it once it was unrolled in the room. The
design, the colors, it’s all so lovely:
You can see it’s definitely more vibrant in person.
The one caveat with this rug is that it doesn’t have any fibers or texture
like a traditional rug. It’s really just printed, kind of like a mat:
I wasn’t sure how I felt about that at first, but once we got it down I
REALLY loved it. You have to get really close to it to see that it’s
not a woven rug.
It’s really not much different than the rug we have in the family
I didn’t notice it as much with that one for some reason.
So far it wears as well or better than a regular rug:
it’s the perfect size for our bed (king sized) and the room:
The rug itself is soft, but thin. It doesn’t feel thick underfoot like a
regular one. A rug pad would help that a lot! We don’t mind that it’s not
It hides everything though, and has held up really well. We have one
of these rugs in our kitchen and I’ve even thrown it in the washer to clean
it! 😮 I wouldn’t recommend doing that often, but it held up great!
There are a TON of different colorways and designs available — from more
neutral to colorful.
