Aqua and the Aegean Sea

Inspired by my recent travels to the Aegean sea, I’m hooked on the color aqua. Throughout Greece the water was truly amazing. The Aquas are everywhere, not just in the gorgeous tranquil waters, but painted on buildings, signs, balconies, and store…

Tablet Coffee Table?

I’m ALL about technology; in fact, we have over 9 Apple products in our house. I still have my first generation iPod — it sings lullabies to my daughter at night. My trusty iPod nano jams while I work out. Whether…

Goodbye Man Cave…Hello Playroom!

City Center

As a mom of two young kids I know what it feels like to have toys slowly take over your house. They are in every room and soon you feel like you are suffocating! In my house we had to designate a play space because we couldn’t walk into the living room without tripping on a stuffed animal or worse stepping on a Lego. This play space was formerly a “Man Cave.” Hubby begrudgingly let it be redecorated from a Georgia Bulldogs Shrine to a fun playful play area where our own personal Toys R Us could be organized and put away.  It was the best idea I had yet. The kids have their own personal play area, and we in turn had our living space back! 

Through the redecorating phase of this space it led me to look into fun colored, yet kid friendly rugs that would fit in this space. I wanted something that looked the part but also could withstand what my kids were literally going to throw at it. Did I mention we have 2 dogs? We really needed something durable!

I actually get this question a lot. Working in the rug industry for many years I often get calls from friends and colleagues asking what rugs we have that are suitable for playrooms or play spaces. More and more I hear that people are converting their formal dining room into a play area. Sometimes its their formal den that is converted. In our case it was our “man cave”.  I have found some great rugs for play spaces!
