Our New Mohawk Rug and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

I’d like to thank Mohawk for sponsoring this post and giveaway. As always, I only share things I love and all opinions are 100mine.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I missed you guys!!

Today, I am happy to be back after my little break to share some plans with you and offer you a chance to win a new area rug courtesy of Mohawk Flooring!

There’s been a lot of planning going on around here with the arrival of 2014. Our house is a fixer-upper and there are plenty of rooms and areas we have yet to tackle. As our family grows and changes, our home is doing the same. Dave and I have been discussing the immediate needs and are laying out the things we would like to work on in 2014. We will be sharing all of that this week, but for today we are focusing on our boys.

The Problem.  Being a mom is one of the greatest blessings and joys of my life. Early on, Dave and I wanted our boys to share a room for a while. Once our little guy, Sam , was out of his crib we had fun creating a room for him to share with his big brother. Things change though. As great as it has been to see them bond and hear their late night talks, we were having some issues. WE MAKE GIANT CHILDREN. A twin bed wasn’t cutting it for our teenage sized 10-year-old. This prompted us to give them separate rooms ahead of schedule. We were a little heart-broken at first, but change usually works out to be a good thing.

The Plan.  I had separate “consultations” with both boys regarding their new room designs. It was the cutest thing ever. I had them each go through some room images that I selected to see what they were drawn to. I first met with Bman, our oldest. He loves science, building things, travel and art. It was no surprise to me that he loved spaces with bold geometric rugs, orange, and space-age touches. Next, I had him list all the things he wanted to see in his room. He is requesting more storage, a large workspace, and extra seating. We are going to work in some existing things, but there will be a lot of painting, building, and a few surprises ahead.

Our jumping off point for his room is this Stylin Ogee Rug in Paprika from Mohawk. We measured his room and the 96×120 size works perfectly.

It has the geo pattern that Bman loves and the colors are perfect for his taste. It also comes in a larger size and fits his room perfectly. It is the first thing we have placed in his room and he loves it! The mom in me loves that it is really well-made and easy to clean, because as we all know, boys are messy!

This rug is super soft and plush. The boys love playing on it!

There are quite a few changes ahead for this room. Some things that will remain are the dresser nightstand (it will just get a makeover), some of the bedding including the organic orange blanket and duvet, and the DIY Map Art we made.

The Design. It all began with the right rug.  Here’s some of the selections that we have decided on:

I love the design plans we have for him. I am so excited to makeover each room and I am thinking about doing a big reveal so it is a surprise to them. Not sure if that will work with our schedule, but I’d love to do it that way. We are gearing up to finish his room makeover soon. Next, I will paint and then we will move to lighting and our building projects.

Now it’s your turn to enter to win your own new 5×8 Mohawk area rug valued at $150 or under of your choice!

      For Real. Did you see those feet? Those are not the feet of a 10-year-old, right? I knew this would be an issue one day…I am an Amazon transplant and Dave and I both have skyscraper Dads. One day I will have strapping men to take care of me :) I love that rug and am guilty of walking barefoot in there just so I can feel it on my feet and I am so excited to give them rooms that fit their interests and personalities :) xo Kristin

    Such a great rug. I love the colors and it’s perfect for a boy’s room. I’m also loving that orange throw you have. I also had no idea that Mohawk Rugs were made in the US. That’s a big one for me.

      Hi Jessica :) I have not designed a kid space in a while and I have to admit it is one of my favorite spaces to work. Mohawk is a great company and we just love the new rug. It is so well made and easy to vacuum. Cheers to 2014! xo Kristin

    The best way to bring a room together without a lot of work. A great area rug with wonderful colors and great for the tootsies. I love mohawk brand. I have rugs from years ago that still hold up and kept the color like new. Blue is an easy color for fading and not the case with my 20 year old area rug we had custom made by a mohawk dealer!
