Casa Friday Confession: I'm a rug hater.

Hello lovely readers,

What do you think about rugs? Love them? Hate them? Don't know how to clean them? As you can tell by the title, I'm a hater. We never had rugs around growing up. This is probably because when I was about 3 or 4 I slipped on one and smacked my head on my metal bed frame. I imagine all the rugs in our home went to rug heaven after that little accident. Or it could have been because we had 2 cats and trying to keep rugs clean when you have cats is a big old waste of time.

I had one white shaggy rug in university between mine & Sono's bed. It got absolutely covered in hair and ended up looking more beige than white. Nasty, I know. Why am I even telling you this? Unnecessary details. Anyhow, I've started thinking about maybe having a rug in the living room to make it feel more cozy, since we do have hardwood. I'm thinking I'd like a more natural material, possibly jute or linen. Do rugs even come in linen? I don't know what I'm talking about. I basically want something that is very flat and vaccuum-able, so no shag, but that brings a bit of life to this box we call an apartment.

I like these ones:
Fun rug that's still neutral from West Elm
Natural jute rug from Home Decorators
From Sears, $1000. Yikes!

I gotta wrap this up because I have a date tonight! Teehee. I'll try to post for Steppin Out Saturday on Sunday with a travel outfit or two. Until then, have a great weekend!
