This post was created in collaboration with Mohawk Home, and I was provided a rug for review. All opinions are 100% my own and #iLOVEmymohawkrug.
When Cole and I moved into our new place, we came here with essentially nothing “housey”. We had never laid roots anywhere in a place of our own in the whole nearly four years that we’ve been together, because we had been doing lots of seasonal work and lots of traveling. Last November, however, we finished our seasonal work for the year and decided to FINALLY get a place of our own- something I had literally been dreaming about for the longest time! To say I was ridiculously excited to finally decorate our own apartment would be an understatement, that’s how excited I was.
So anyways, moral of the story, we had a whole lot of nothing when we moved in except for my mass amounts of clothes I’d hoarded since we moved back from New Zealand. We furnished our house mostly in IKEA, because we both like the modern look that they offer and they were completely in our budget (I don’t need a lecture on how cheap IKEA stuff is, we know and we don’t mind! I’m looking at you mom… ;) Haha). We spent every last penny we had on the basics, and decided to acquire the “decorative” things over time. Our walls are still bare- we can’t agree on any artwork! Haha.
Eventually, Mohawk Home came along and saved the day. It seemed almost fate that they contacted me about a rug review because that is exactly what our little living room needed- a fun, bright pick-me-up. And the Mohawk rug I ended up choosing gave it just that! I am SO in love with this room now and even Cole agrees that it makes the space more “ours”.
I love how it just pulls everything in the room together, and because this whole room is sort of a living room/dining room area all in one (the little dining corner area isn’t pictured here), the rug really helps to create some separation of the two spaces. It’s really nice quality and has beautiful, vibrant colors that go perfectly in our living room. #ilovemymohawkrug!
