Best Rugs for a Living Space with Kids

I know many of you can relate to feeling the “decorating itch” in your own homes. After the Christmas decorations went down I was feeling a little tired of how our living room was looking. Enter Lorena Canals Rugs and this space was instantly transformed!

Our living room space is really a multi-functional space for our family. My kids run and play with toys in this area (we always have baskets of their toys in the area). We also use this space to watch movies or Football on Sundays and after the kids are in bed my husband and I like to tuck the toys away and light a fire in the fireplace and enjoy the quiet with a glass of wine. I love that the Lorena Canals rug can transform the room and works with both this being a place my children play and also a sophisticated spot for adults only.

Additionally, to update this room we’ve added in some new mantle decor. The space is feeling fresh for the new year but I still don’t feel like it is completely finished as we want a new couch. We’re still on the hunt for the right one!

In the mean time one thing I am confident that fits the space perfectly is this amazing Lorena Canal rug. What initially drew me to this brand is that these rugs are machine washable (say what!?). You mean my kids can spill oatmeal and milk on it and I can just toss it in my laundry machine? Count me in! The variety of rugs they offer is truly so amazing and I had such a hard time narrowing it down. I loved so many of the rugs they have available!

In addition to these being low maintenance and easy to clean rugs, Lorena Canals also donates a portion of their proceeds to the Sakula Project and provides schooling to children in India. The rugs are made in India and designed in Spain and they are made of all natural dyes, handmade, eco, and contain no VOCs like most carpeting and rugs. Since this area of my home is a spot my children lounge or play in often, this was very important to me!

Marley’s Room


I love when others share the inspiration behind their children’s rooms. Creating a special space for your little one can be hard, but is so worth it! To be honest, if I could get a job exclusively designing nurseries, that’d be ideal 😂

I love finding unique pieces or making something old new again. I also spend a lot of time just browsing small shops for different items (much to my husband’s dismay).



Marley’s room is one of my favorite spots in our home. When she was just a babe in my belly I knew I wanted her nursery to be a dreamy little girl room but not TOO girly. I incorporated greys, metals, dark purples and pinks to complete the look. I wanted a lot of these items to be able to transition to a “big girl” room and I think they will!


Marley is almost 17 months old so I know before long we will be updating this space to a “big girl” room. I’m not sure what the plan will be when that time comes but I know a lot of these items are transitional.

I splurged on items I felt made the space complete but also saved on larger items such as the dresser and nightstand. We also reused the babyletto crib that was Kellan’s. Some items I splurged on were the West Elm wire wall rack (similar), Bla Bla knit doll and the the giraffe print.
