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.
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.
Mohawk Home’s area rugs are Still Made in America, which is a definite plus to me. We have been using this rug for a couple of weeks now, and have had no fuzzing at all- a huge surprise for a wool rug.
I am very pleased with our new keeping room area rug, and am excited to be able to offer you the chance to win a rug for yourself. Mohawk Home is offering one of you a 5 x 8 area rug, a $150 value!
