The weekend is here! I’m excited because it’s a weekend with not much on our calendar other than a few activities for the kids and dinner with friends. Lots of down time which means I’ll have time for some organizing. YEA. I’m almost done with my kitchen and I’m ready to start closets. It’s feeling so good to de-clutter! I hope if you’re joining me in my organizing challenge you are feeling motivated and making progress too! I’m switching gears a little today to talk about kitchen runners. And weekend wear. Because it’s the weekend and well.. we need cute sweatshirts to wear when we organize. ;)
I ordered 4 different runners for my kitchen because I loved them all on-line and just couldn’t pick one without seeing them in my kitchen. Then they arrived and I tried them all in my kitchen and I still couldn’t pick just one.. they are all so good! So I’m keeping 3 of them (ha) and just putting a couple in other spots around my home. I thought I would share them all with you in case you’re looking for a new affordable rug too! They all come in lots of sizes at great price points!
First up this beautiful cream stripe jute rug with charcoal stripes. LOVE this rug. Great texture and it adds just enough personality without being too busy. It also works the best with my kitchen dining nook rug (below) that has some blues in it because this charcoal color almost looks navy. I’m keeping this and I’m going to try it in my mudroom or laundry room and maybe switch it out in the kitchen (it’s my second choice for this spot!).
It works so well with this rug!
Another striped jute rug for the win! Wow.. love this one too! It has such a cool casual/modern vibe and I like the black stripes with my black pendants. Another fun option that I can’t part with!
The 3rd runner is a great neutral option. I really love this rug.. it’s beautiful, has great texture, a fun pattern and I love the tassels on the ends. BUT. It feels a little too neutral with my current kitchen decor and I already have these neutral washable rugs that I can use during the holidays when I have more going on in my kitchen.
So this rug is going back but I wanted to share it because I do love it if you are looking for a good neutral rug!
And we have a winner for the kitchen! At least for now. :) This is the same rug as the neutral runner I just shared above but in black. I couldn’t love this jute black runner more! I’ve always been a sucker for black stripes. It has the same great texture and fringe and tassels as the rug above, but the black has so much more personality that I’m loving in my kitchen right now.
Plus just look at it with my black pendants! I knew it was the one the second I laid it down. But I love the charcoal/navy striped rug in this space too and it has more of a summer vibe so I’m thinking I’ll keep this rug here now and maybe switch to option #1 as it gets warmer.
Which runner is your favorite? :)
Before I sign off I thought I’d share a few sweatshirts I’ve been wearing and loving. I don’t know about you but I’ve had a really hard time getting out of lounge wear the past month! January and February are kind of funny months to me because I go between “it’s a new year and I’m so motivated to set new habits and do ALL the things!” Then 5 minutes later.. “Can I please just curl up in my sweats and take a nap?”
Anyone else? Hence the reason these 3 sweatshirts were really speaking to me. :)
First this pretty blue weekend graphic sweatshirt. (So comfy!)
Then inhale exhale. Always a good thing – whether you’re climbing the highest mountain or binge watching Stranger Things for the 4th time. (Speaking of I think season 4 is coming out this year! CAN’T WAIT.)
And of course.. ready for VACAY. Because when are we not ready for a vacay?
All 3 of these sweatshirts are warm and soft and comfortable and perfect for this time of year when we’re ready to do all the things along with absolutely nothing. :) I linked a few other comfy sweatshirts below!
*I usually wear xs in tops but I sized up to a small in all of these because I wanted a comfortable, loose fit so go up one size if you want the same!
And on that note.. enjoy your weekend weekend weekend weekend weekend weekend.
