I always love it when the opportunity arises to discuss products in my area of expertise. Before I became a full-time blogger, I enjoyed managing the East Coast Sales for a High End Furniture Manufacturer and providing Interior Design Consulting. I've worked with many major furniture and rug lines throughout my career and I am thrilled to tell you about Mohawk Home.
This is my lovely little dining room. The place my Husband, two teenagers and I gather daily to discuss what is on our minds over a delicious meal. The first piece of furniture that I ever purchased new was this dining table, so it has been in the family for a long time. As much as I'd love to have a new look, it's still functional so there's really no need to replace it. Plus, purchasing a new dinette set can be very costly. At the same time, this room looks really boring. It's very neutral with it's light khaki wall paint and antiqued white accents. Even my mirrored prints on the wall are very bland and monotone. I found a gorgeous silk arrangement of tulips that added a splash of color to the room, but that's really not enough to make this room pop!
A very simple and easy way to liven up any room and tie all the elements together is with an area rug. It's also a great way to get a new look without having to invest in new furniture. When choosing your rug, you want to take into consideration the main colors of your room. Since my dining room is very understated at the moment, I basically had no limitations in the colors I could choose. I knew I wanted to keep my floral arrangement where it was, so I did want to pick a rug that would compliment my accessories. That certainly did not mean that I had to choose a red rug as matching is no fun. I just needed the right color combination to blend with my arrangement.
The Area Rug I chose is called the Bangkok Kaleidoscope by Mohawk Home. It is full of vibrant, bold colors including hues of red, orange, plum, olive and teal. I love that within minutes, you can have an entirely new look. We moved the dining room table out of the way and rolled the rug out evenly with our chandelier as this is the center point of the dining room. We then sat the table and chairs back in place.
It was love at first sight! This beautiful rug added new life and rich color to our plain and ordinary dining room. Everyone who has visited my home has noticed it immediately and the compliments have been endless. I love that not only is it trendy and stylish, it's also affordable. It feels like an entirely new room and I couldn't be happier. My daughter loves it so much that she has already asked if it can go to college with her. (I think we will just have to buy her one of her own).
Besides bringing beauty to an ordinary room, accent and area rugs are quite functional and Mohawk Home makes a variety of styles to cover these needs. You can use them to prevent and cover stains which can save you hundreds of dollars over having to replace carpet. They can be used in entrance ways preventing dirt and debris from being tracked throughout the home. Placed with a rug pad, they can turn a slippery hallway into a beautiful and easy to maneuver path.
Mohawk Home is the largest manufacturer of area rugs, indoor and outdoor mats, and washable rugs in the United States. So they are certain to carry just the right rug to suit your needs. I just love a company that can still write "Made in the USA" on their products and I would love for you to check out this quick video...
