We moved to our new home this past year, and with that comes decorating. Our old house we bought as a starter home. An investment. From day one, we planned to improve it and sell it. In doing so, I found myself often choosing decorative options that weren’t necessarily me, but what I thought would help sell the home when the time came. Now that we have moved, and I am calling this my forever home, I can finally decorate the way that I want. I can choose decor that reflects who I am and what I like. Which brings up a big question: What do I want/like?
Madison at Main offered to send me 2 of their accent rugs for my house. But with over 250 styles of Jellybean accent rugs and around 100 Homefires Accent rugs, choosing was no easy task. I know, it is just rugs, but it really left me wanting to make a statement of who I am. Two things came to mind that are very descriptive of what I love about my home: my garden, and my chickens. I was able to find rugs which reminded me of both with the adorable Funky Chickens Jellybean accent rug and Provence Sunflowers Jellybean accent rug.
These rugs are so beautiful. I decided to put the Funky Chickens rug in my kitchen in front of my sink. It brightens the room so much with it’s very vibrant colors. I am sure the rug will cheer me through the long winter that I know is coming, and remind me that the sunflowers will come again next summer.
The Provence Sunflowers rug is in my dining area in front of our sliding door which leads to the back deck. I liked that the colors in this rug were a little more subdued, as it seemed more fitting for my dining area. It is still very colorful and eye catching, but not as bold.
I was concerned that these rugs would be very slippery before I tried them out. They have very small rubbery spots on the back, and it didn’t seem like it would be very grippy. I was wrong. While the rug packaging does recommend using a liner to “provide slip resistance”, I have not found it necessary to put a liner under them. They do move around a little on the floor, but not like they are slipping out from under you or anything. I have not had any issues with the corners of them rolling up or folding over which is awesome as that would be a real tripping hazard for my toddler.
The accent rugs measure 21″ X 33″ and are 1/4″ thick. I will admit, when choosing I wasn’t really thinking about the size and I was worried they would be small. You can take out a measuring tape and see, that they are generously sized. They are not an extremely thick rug, but still comfortable to stand on.
By far the best part about these rugs is their washability. Jellybeans tagline for the rugs is “washes better than your jeans.” This is PERFECT for my house and my family as the kids are constantly in and out of the house and they track in A LOT of dirt. It has been so convenient to be able to throw them in the washing machine and have them come out looking like new.
Washable rugs are no longer difficult to find! Jellybean brand accent rugs come in many colorful and fun designs, and they are all machine washable! If you can fit it in the washing machine, you can wash it. Jellybean rugs are also indoor AND outdoor! Go ahead and put them out on the front porch, patio, by the back door, the garage, anywhere! Not only that, every Jellybean rug is made of 35% recycled post-consumer PET plastic! There are so many designs to choose from that everyone will find something they like. Jellybean rugs also make great gifts, even for kids!
I can’t wait to order more rugs as I continue to figure out the identity of my new home. From seaside, to western they have something for everyone. I also love their adorable seasonal rugs such as for Halloween and Christmas. The site is extremely user friendly offering searches by various themes allowing you to find exactly what you want.
