After all the work I put into creating Kate’s colorful tree on the wall, I wasn’t ready to take it down – which also meant I’d be keeping the room’s magenta wall color. In addition to keeping the tree, I also knew I wanted to work Kate’s activity table into the space. We originally bought it for our downstairs family room (table seen here), and at the time red chairs looked the best.
I’m no expert on the color wheel, but the way I see it red and magenta aren’t exactly best friends.
With plans to incorporate plenty of other fun colors into the space (orange, purple, lime green, and teal), I had a feeling I could make it all work without having to repaint the chairs…as long as I could find the perfect rug.
Enter Mohawk Flooring.
One look at their gorgeous Mixed Chevrons area rug and I knew I found my winner! This bright beauty has all the colors I’ll be using in the space and then some! Best of all – it features red and magenta zig-zagging together in cute and colorful harmony:
Looks are important, but I also need my area rugs to be soft and durable. We’ve been living with this rug (and playing on it) for almost two months so far and it looks and feels fabulous. It’s nice and soft under our bare feet, low-pile so Kate’s tiniest toy pieces don’t get lost in it, and it vacuums up beautifully. The best part? Mohawk rugs are still made in America!
So far Kate’s new playroom includes our gorgeous new chevron rug, Kate’s activity table, a new IKEA Expedit shelving unit which will soon be filled with toys and crafts, and her play kitchen set (not seen in the picture above). I still have a loooong way to go in here, but I’m so excited with how it’s starting out!
