It’s that time. My living room rug has seen better days and I’m ready for a refresh. I recently discovered rugsusa.com thanks to a few of my favourite bloggers. The website has a huge selection of stylish, good quality rugs at really reasonable prices – there are always great sales – and I’ve only ever heard good things, so I’m excited to give them a try.

It also needs to be durable and easy to clean (again, the dog). So here’s where I need your help! I’ve narrowed my choices down to three favourites, but I’m having trouble making the final call.
Savanna Trellis Flatwoven Navy Rug, from $336.
