Rug Options for your Home

Welcome back to another Inspired Home blogging series that my husband Jason Black and co-contributing to for WLKY. This week we took a little field trip to a local company called Carpet Specialists. Jason and I have worked with this family owned business for over 10 years. They really have a great selection of carpets and area rugs. I love when I get to work on design projects with my husband, and this weeks adventure sent us on the hunt for some area rugs to use in a Homearama house that Jason is building and I'm designing. We love shopping and supporting local as much as we can. Here are a few of my favorites that Carpet Specialists has available to order. Keep in mind that all these rugs come in various sizes to meet the needs of your specific room. Here are just a few they have to offer, in a variety of colors.

Also, carpet runners are a big trend right now. They are a great way to spruce up your stairs, and add a little style to what can generally be a pretty bland area. Here are some great carpets that they have available at Carpet Specialists that can be made into carpet runners, or area rugs.
This greek key design is a fun mix of modern and traditional.
The next designs are a little more monotone, and would work well in a more softer and neutral pallet.

I also love the look of a grass cloth. It reminds me of the beach, one of our favorite places to travel to. We always include a little inspiration from the beach in all our designs.

Both of these are great neutrals, and would make great carpet runners, or area rugs.

I was drawn to this pattern because it reminds me of a pretty needlepoint pillow. 
These are great soft options, that give a hint of color and pattern, without being too overwhelming.
This bold Ikat print is really fun! I can visualize this in a family room as a large area rug.
I'm also seeing the honeycomb pattern making a comeback in design. This is a beautiful area rug they have available in various sizes, and it's so soft.
Wanting to get a rug made for a nursery? I love this pink or gray option. You wouldn't have to be tied to a certain theme, and the rugs could work with many different looks for years to come.
Jason and I are both standing by some of our favorite pieces that they have to offer in area rugs.

Hopefully you see a rug design that catches your eye. I only barely touched on the selection they have to offer. They aren't called "carpet specialists" by coincidence {wink} If you stop by, ask for Suzann, she's always wonderful to work with. 
Luckily our field trip was a success, and I was able to find a couple rugs for my Homearama House. You'll just have to wait until July to see which ones we selected. Homearama is July 16-31st and is located in Norton Commons. Thanks for stopping by. And if you want to see more of our day to day design and building work you can follow me on instagram here, and Jason here.
With grace & gumption,
