Colorful Rugs Under $150

My friend Sara texted me the other day looking for advice as she shopped for a rug for her entryway. She lives in an adorable studio apartment in my neighborhood and has the coolest mix of furniture and accessories–items she picked up while serving in the Peace Corps, like a set of woven African baskets, colorful artwork, and my favorite, an old-fashioned mint green diner table that she inherited from her great-grandmother.

Sara’s apartment largely is a mix of pink, mint, and brown, and she wants to find a rug that’s 1) under $150 and 2) is warm and welcoming. She has plenty of floor space to work with, but the trick is to find an affordable piece that ties the room together.

Here are a few of my favorite finds:

Turkish rugs are having a moment, and for good reason! I love the one I ordered on Etsy earlier this year and constantly swoon when I see pretty patterns in other people’s homes. The trick is finding a nice piece at the right price–Turkish rugs can go for hundreds. However, I’ve found many Etsy shops that have reasonable deals–for the real thing–and also ship items out speedily!

Sara and I liked this rug a lot, but it’s too small to meet her needs. However, the colors and pattern were just what she had in mind!

This muted style would go well with her light pink duvet color and mint green accents.

Similarly, this one would also look gorgeous in her space.

Target has some great rugs that are larger and still more affordable. I particularly liked these two styles for her space.

This is technically $9 over budget, but it’s a great size and shade.
