colorful rug love.

The houses on blogs and Instagram that are stark white with neutral tones are gorgeous. They feel so light and clean and sophisticated. Like grownups live there.

But every time I go try to purposefully reproduce that look, I instead end up purchasing things like this from Urban Outfitters (with free shipping):

And then after I complete the purchase, I say "oh, shoot, I was going for the white-on-white look!" If you check out my Pinterest boards, you will see that I do in fact love color. I need to remember that.


  1. I'm the same way. I love the look of white, but I love color too much to stick with it.

  2. To me the white on white look only works well with those few pops of color you know? :) this is a wonderful rug!

  3. I think white on white is overrated. :-)

  4. I like the rugs you chose, both are fun and interesting in different ways :)

  5. I love white on white too but then i remember i have a 2 year old and 3 month old and white doesn't stay white very long. ;)

    I do love those UO rugs though! How do you like the first one? I have actually been thinking for some time to get that one for my daughter's room but now I see the second one and love that too. decisions, decisions :)
