On any day, you can find me working out, reading or even napping on my living room rug. The right one will work just as great as a couch.
When shopping for rugs, there are 5 things I keep in mind: the softness, quality (no shedding please), style, price point, and whether or not I'll feel like I'm on a cloud when my feet touch them. In the past, I've struggled to find one that checked all those boxes, so I often sacrificed comfort for style. I'm wiser now, so I spend hours reading product descriptions and reviews before purchasing a new one.
As I brace myself for the cold weather, my home essentials include: a comfy rug, a warm throw blanket, and hot chocolate. Ahead, I've rounded up some foundational pieces that meet my criteria and will add texture and warmth to your space.
