I don’t know about you but I hate to see a white wall. They may make an excellent backdrop for Instagram pictures but they’re not toddler proof and they lack personality. One of the many downsides of renting is that our house contains only white walls. As a result I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to add a splash of colour without sacrificing our bond. When the team at Lorena Canals got in touch, I knew their delightful handmade rugs would be right up my street!
When it comes to home decor my requirements are simple. I want something which looks good, is hardwearing and helps to make my house feel like a home. Lorena Canals ticks all my boxes. Not only are their products irresistibly stylish they are also practical. Take for example their range of washable rugs and cushions. Yes, you read that right. A rug that your threenager can wipe his nose on without inducing a mega mama meltdown! Simple stick the entire rug in the washer and hey presto. Bugger free and good as new.
As if child resistance isn’t enough, Lorena Canals have taken things to the next level. They’ve designed products which are so contemporary they wouldn’t look out of place in a high end penthouse. These handmade beauties are the ideal addition to any home. The bright colours and elegant patterns are sure to catch your attention while the durable design is guaranteed to withstand family life.
I opted for a design which I knew would be versatile in our home. I like to mix things up on a regular basis so I wanted something which I could easily integrate into our lounge but also other rooms. Having had a good browse through their extensive collection I couldn’t help but take a peek at their Instagram. Prepare to fall in love because their feed is full of gorgeous pictures that will leave you with a double dose of inspiration and major home envy! As soon as I saw this picture I just knew this was the design for me.
My rug arrived promptly, although I have to admit before hand I was a little concerned. When you order a rug online you half expect a ginormous parcel to arrive. It was a surprise when the delivery man knocked on the door with a neat bundle under his arm. Sure enough, inside my expertly packaged parcel I found a delightful rug along with two cushions.
Initially I planned to keep the rug in our lounge but once it arrived I just knew it would be perfect for our bedroom. Again another room which its predominantly white, I love the way it adds a subtle splash of colour without being to overbearing. The matching cushions help tie the rug in with the rest of the room, creating a cozy, elegant space.
The only problem now is I’m not sure one rug is enough! I’ve already got my eye on a few other designs including one from the amazing galaxy collection which I know will be ideal in Rory’s room. Clearly we need a bigger house so I can become a fully fledged hoarder of rugs!
If like me your family home is lacking in unique flair why not treat yourself to a new Lorena Canals rug?
