A little living room makeover for fall + our new Lorena Canals rug!

Hi friends :)

I love decorating for fall, it gives me a warm & happy feeling inside when the weather starts cooling down & the leaves start changing.  This year I felt like doing a mini makeover in the living room at the same time as I was putting up the fun fall stuff.  If you've been following my blog all of these years, you'll know that one thing I've always done is re-decorate A LOT!  I like to keep things fresh & new, it makes me happy!

My favorite part of this mini makeover is our new rug by Lorena Canals!  I. AM. IN. LOVE.  Not only is it PERFECT for our living room but it's MACHINE WASHABLE!!!  I didn't know machine washable area rugs even EXISTED.  What a perfect addition to our messy home with 3 crazy rug rats & 2 chihuahuas, seriously.  Where has this rug been all my life?

I'm SO in love, that from now on when a new mom asks me what tips I have for her, I'm going to say "You need machine washable area rugs!" ;)  Kids are the messiest creatures on Earth.  I don't care if you're an extreme neat freak like I am, & follow them around all day cleaning up, your rugs will get destroyed.  We've made the mistake for years buying rugs that cannot be washed.  Not only have our kids spilled multiple drinks & many kinds of food on them, but our 2 chihuahuas have done a number on them as well.  We once had 4 area rugs rolled up in our garage to be thrown away at bulk pickup garbage day because we had no way to clean them. 

You may have seen Lorena Canals in MANY Instagram photos these days because they're majorly trending, but they're also loved by celebs & Vogue magazine too. There's a reason they're so popular.  They have the CUTEST designs, colors, & prints to choose from in addition to being machine washable.  Their rugs fit into a standard washer & dryer, & you can find styles for adult spaces & kids rooms too!  They're HANDMADE with natural dyes & contain no VOC's like most other rugs.  I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted the most because I love them all.  I don't have to worry that it's a light color because when it gets dirty I know now that I can just pop it in the washer & dryer and can keep it clean forever.

 I'm in love with it and it makes the most perfect addition to our living room.  I adore the tassles on the edges as well.  It's also SUPER easy to vacuum!  Our last area rug was thick & I couldn't vacuum it so it collected goldfish crumbs, cheerios, dirt, legos, you name it, haha!  Their prices are very reasonable especially for how well made they are & knowing you will be able to keep it forever with being able to maintain it with machine washing & drying.  Oh... and if you are as in love with the rugs as I am, you should also check out the washable cushions they have as well, blankets, baskets, and wall decor too!  :)

Here's some more pics of the rug + little fall makeover:
