13 Modern Rugs for a sleek Home

As some of you might know, I love to design interiors and have gotten more of a chance to exercise my passion in recent years as we have bought and sold homes. My husband is in real estate, so instead of putting extra savings in stocks and bonds, we have invested in real estate. If you follow me on instagram, you might be familiar with the fun and retro interiors of our Palm Desert home, which was a blast decorating because you can go all out with the desert! I am also a lover of color, patterns, textures. and layering, so this was a perfect project for me. 

As of late, we have decided to invest back in Downtown Los Angeles, a market that is booming with growth right now, by purchasing a loft. I work out of LA a lot and we currently live about 45 minutes away on the coast, so knowing we wanted to invest in LA somewhere, this was the perfect location. However, my hubby begged me to please not splatter the apartment with color and vintage eclectic decor, which is definitely my "signature" look if I have one. Instead he said he would love a serene and masculine place thats super modern. Challenge accepted. I have been scouring my top spots for everything from furniture to rugs to lighting and today was all about the rugs. This of course inspired todays post. I can't spend a ton on each item, so tried to keep my hunt for a 9x12 rug under $1000 which is hard to do! Rugs are costly and big rugs like this can run in the thousands and even tens of thousands! I don't have the money for that, so I rounded up my favorite rugs for a modern space that fall right under the $1200 mark, with many well under that! For rugs, I love One Kings Lane for the diversity in brands that they carry and huge selection as well as CB2 for their modern and current taste.

I'd love to know which rugs you love most!

Rug Roundup: Best New Rugs at Target Home

Target Home has been killing it lately with all of their home decor, but specifically has been providing fantastic options for all types of rugs and floor mats! I was originally going to do this post on a roundup of "The Best of Target Home" but it was too hard as I kept getting distracted by the attractive and fun patterned rugs that were priced so fair! (That post coming soon) Im all about a great looking rug, new and old, to spice up a room and add dimension and character. I normally purchase vintage or antique rugs on Ebay (and will have a roundup of my current rug finds on Ebay up soon) but those can be soooo expensive. didn't feel there was a better option though because, as it was, I was getting the lowest prices I could find and that was still upwards of $300-$400 minimum for a small area rug. Can you imagine my joy when I saw this seasons rugs online that were quality and had great color combos and patterns ?! And many for a fraction of the price! I have already purchased a couple and am mixing them in with my authentic vintage rugs. There are options from neutral styles, to modern,  to moroccan for any type of style. Check out my faves!


These rugs can be mixed and layered in many different home styles to create a warm and stylish room with a statement! I am very particular when it comes to choosing area rugs for my home because I believe they say a lot about personal style. Cheesy patterns that look brand new made with cheap synthetic materials are just all around BAD. I love the look of an old world, antique, or fun colored rug because it just sets the tone for the room, right?! I hope you guys love these rugs as much as I do. Which ones do you guys love most? Let me know in the comments below!
