The Rugs we have at our Lake House

It’s pretty incredible how much beauty and depth rugs add to a space. In our Brooklyn home, we have a few vintage oushak rugs that are some of my favorite additions in our home.  The main downside is that they can really add up in price, especially if you’re adding rugs to numerous locations. Ultimately, I decided that for now, I wanted a similar look, but for less.

The Rugs we have at our Lake House

The three rugs I’m sharing here are all printed versions and quite honestly, I’m pleasantly surprised at how much I like them. They’re also affordable and incredibly easy to maintain and clean (so many DMs telling assuring me of this), especially with little kids.

One thing to note: If you want your rug to have that plush feel, these won’t be for you. If you don’t mind (which I really don’t), I’d recommend in a heartbeat.

Are we going to upgrade them down the line? Possibly! But for now, these are doing a beautiful job.

In the above photo, I added this rug in a 9 x 12. When I saw the photo online, I liked how it looked and hoped that I’d feel the same way in person. However, once it arrived, I was blown away by how much better it looked than the photos showed. It looks so much more expensive and added such a nice element to our living room.

    Those are lovely lovely rugs and they do look so much more expensive than they are. And I like how the decor of the lake house is shaping up.

      I agree! Rugs were always the best way to decorate your interior. I hate to see houses with just wooden floors and no rugs on them. I also love to see when people do smaller decorations with rugs on walls, it can look impressive for sure.
