Keeping Room Gets New Area Rug- Plus a Giveaway

As you know, I have sloooowly been making over our keeping room. One of the elements I was trying to decide on was an area rug. The first area rug I brought home got a big “no” vote on facebook, and I wasn’t entirely happy with it, either, so back it went to my friend.

Sooo, when Mohawk Home contacted me with an offer of a rug to review, I jumped at such a blessing. After much browsing and deliberating, plus checking out some of the rugs in person at Home Depot and Lowe’s, I took a chance on one I had only seen online and went with Devan Mocha.

It’s a beautiful rug, plush and soft. I especially love the antique look. It is designed to look worn and faded in areas (only in pattern and color- the rug is thick and plush all over). Though the description says the colors are mocha and blue, there is more green than blue. I hadn’t expected that, but the green will add a nice accent color to the room’s blue and cream color scheme.

The aged look goes well with the distressed blue trunk I scored from a trade with my friend Carolyn, a fellow booth owner. I intended to use the trunk as a coffee table, but it is a little too tall and too large for placing in the center of this tiny room.


Mohawk Rug Devan Mocha-


The rug adds an extra cozy feel to my “nest,” as Richard calls my spot on the love seat.

Looking toward the fireplace, you can see the less “worn” area of the design. Just the right amount of pattern to compliment the stenciled feature wall without getting too busy.

    • Thanks so much, Kathy. It’s funny that even my own pics look blue, but in person, it is mostly green and brown. But it has enough blue in it to tie in nicely with everything else in the room. :)

  7. I went to the Mohawk site & tried to browse their rugs. Their home page came up but when I clicked on a style to browse an empty page came up on three different styles – but, I’ve been looking at their rugs & love them. I know I’d choose a floral pattern!

  21. Excellent choice Sheila! It is so lovely! And how exciting to get one from USA and the company! Cool!

    My story briefly. Hubs was stationed in Spokane Wa, we were on base housing; being not high rank we were always on the edge financially. I had bought some rug samples, 12 of them and sewed them together. I took those carpets everywhere we moved for years. I threw some in the washer, hosed them off, had dogs etc. I think they were Mohawk. Anyway one day I was having a pity party by myself, and I looked down at these samples still looking sooo good, in spite of everything else in my life at that time. For $1 each , they served me well. So I wrote a letter right then to the company! One day not too long after that, I got a knock on my door, a rep was there and had some books from which I could choose any carpet I wanted! I was blown away! I hope yours serves you well for a very long time too.

    • I looove that story, Bernice! My parents had a patchwork carpet in their house for many years, done the same way, except it was all glued to the underlayment. It was kind of sad when they finally replaced it with “real” carpet. :)

  22. I love the rug you chose. I need one for my living room as it’s on my to do list this spring. Thanks.

  23. Mary Jenkins says:

    I love the felicia cocoa praline rug. It’s so nice when you have that standard tan carpeting in a rental property to be able to find a way to brighten and customize the room. And it’s an American made product, which I really love!

  24. Jennifer Reynolds says:

    We just got a new home and are trying to make it our own. this would help so much.

  25. I really like the Palace Border – Cream

  26. I love the Felicia Cocoa Parline rug! So pretty!

  27. Sonya Neal says:

    I am in love with the “Everyday Life- Black Pebble” Would be beautiful in our living room!! :) Thank you for the great post :)

  28. I have new pups in my house as well. Hopefully they are past the chewing stage. I like the traditional Medallion on the Mohawk Home website. However, yours is beautiful. It compliments your room.

  29. Love your rug. I think Monaco Shitake would do well in my space. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Your new rug looks great! Not sure which rug I would choose, but I do have their mixed chevron rug and I love it!
