If there’s one thing I’ve learned from admiring people’s entries to the #DSNiceRug challenge on Instagram, it’s that people with great rugs often have great homes. And great cats. It felt like nearly every entry had a cat (and a few adorable dogs) featured prominently. And for that, Turk and I send a big furry high-five. I was quite frankly blown away by the amount of beautiful rugs submitted to this particular hashtag challenge and had SUCH a great time sifting through them. Thank you SO much to everyone who sent in their rugs and I’m so thrilled to show off 30 of our favorites here today. Rugs for everyone! xo, grace
*And don’t worry, we emailed pretty much everyone in this list to ask about a Sneak Peek!
