Rug Roundup | Spring 2018

Spring is here (well, in spirit more than in sun and warm temperatures here in Colorado) and I am officially working through two home projects. One, a rustic mountain home, and the other a small urban house in need of some updates. While they are very different in style and locale, they both seem to benefit greatly from the addition of rugs.
