There are so many things that I love about our new house, including the easy to clean hardwood floors and tile. With a quick swipe of the vacuum and mop, they gleam. What I don’t love about all of our hard floor surfaces is that without rugs of all sizes scattered around, they have a tendency to make a room feel cold. Rugs and floor mats add color and cheer and that’s particularly important when you pick neutral wall colors like we did.
I got my first Carpet One rug just about a year ago. It’s a 5’x7′ neutral rug that softens the dark stain on our hardwood floors upstairs. Hands down, this rug has held up the best of all of the various rugs we have around the house. The kids play on it and the cats claw it, but it looks good as new. See for yourself!
When the folks at Carpet One sent me one of their pink ribbon mats to review, I knew I was going to love it and I wasn’t wrong. Their pink ribbon collection of floor mats are made in the U.S.A, machine washable, stain and water resistant and best of all, 25% of the proceeds of each purchase goes to the Breast Cancer Research Fund. You’ve gotta love that.
Another thing I love about these mats is that they have seasonal designs (I’ll share that link in just a second). While I’m not one of those ambitious Pinterest moms that change all of their decor for each holiday (although I’m ridiculously envious of the results of their efforts), I do like to change some things around the house to make it feel season appropriate. This is the particular mat that I picked out:
So stinkin’ cute, right? Lexi is obsessed with ladybugs and it feels so summery that it was a clear choice. While this is both an indoor/outdoor rug, I’ve had this rug outside of our front door for a month and with all the rain we’ve been having (to say nothing of the dogs running in and out), I’m seriously impressed that it doesn’t look any worse for wear. Plus, it’s super soft under my feet when I run out barefoot to yell at the dogs to come back inside.
As I mentioned, the other designs are adorable as well. Check out all of their designs here (make sure to click on the ‘Order Now’ button to see which two designs they currently have in stock):
