The Frugalista Decorista----Rugs

I was looking for rugs online last night,
and it dawned on me that I hadn't shared one of my top
Frugalista Decorista secrets with you.

And that, my friends, is the magic of the Indoor/Outdoor rug.

I wouldn't recommend putting most indoor rugs outside, 
but the rule doesn't really apply the other way.
You can put pretty much anything indoors.

First off, quite a few companies make them now.
Especially if they already sell outdoor furniture.

And they have two major benefits.
Number One: Super cost effective.
All the rugs I'm showing below are way under $200 for a 5X8 rug.

Number Two: You can hose them off.

Need I say more?

If you have dogs or children, you understand why that's a plus.

If you don't have either, then you probably have plenty of disposable income 
to spend on a rug---So this particular post doesn't apply to you.

Look how perty!

This greek key version is on a bit of a back order,
but good (and cheap) things are worth waiting for.

Also from Frontgate

This one is Ballard Designs. I'm not a red person typically,
but I like this coral version.

So is this one---and It's $89 for a 5x7
Is that a joke?
No, it's not.

Fun leopard!
Also Ballard.

I don't even know how to explain this geometric magic.
And these are SUPER on sale right now.
Ballard too.

Love both of these fun versions from World Market

For serious, if you need floor coverings on a budget,
check out Indoor/Outdoor rugs.

They're fab.

I was just looking at that fab orange 'O' rug from World Market for my living room. And I was wondering if I could pull it off! I think I might just try!
