I have spent the last week or two attempting to organize Charlotte's room. It is baffling to me how much stuff we've acquired; a majority of which we never end up using. She still had clothes with tags on them in her closet! Needless to say, it feels good to purge and minimalize.
I've also been on the hunt for a reasonably priced area rug for her to play on. I'm not the biggest fan of carpet; So I wanted her to be able to lay and roll around on something that would give her a barrier between all of the dog fur and other debris that accumulates on the floor. I'm not the mom that vacuums every single day, surprisingly enough.
I had my eye on Lorena Canal rugs for a while. I always admired the beautiful range of bold to soft colors that they offered; but when I went to go research their brand further, I read that not only were their products hypo-allergenic (goodbye, sneezing triggers!) but all of their rugs are MACHINE. WASHABLE. I was sold. Do you know how rare that is? Most decent area rugs require dry-cleaning. Who has the time for that? Not me.
My biggest grievance when it came to picking out the perfect area rug was that I am going to have a toddler within a year. Let's state the obvious: kids are messy. I knew that I didn't want to invest in something that I was more than certain she would end up leaving her mark on in the form of half-chewed bits of Cheerios and grape juice art. So, knowing I can just throw this rug into the wash no-muss-no-fuss was all the confirmation I needed.
When the rug first arrives, It is recommended that you throw it into the dryer for a few minutes, to get out any wrinkles and fluff it up a bit. I was too excited to follow through with this step! It was even more beautiful in person. It's so soft and larger than I thought it would be!
They are all 100% cotton, designed in Spain, and made in India. Their home collection is great for both adult spaces and sophisticated kids rooms. I can't wait to get one for our bedroom and living room next!
I always favor working with brands that also give back. Lorena Canal Proceeds support the Sakula project and provide schooling for children in India. How cool is that? It feels great knowing that I am contributing to a good cause.
