With Christmas coming up I can’t help but think about all the fun little gifts I want to get my new grandson Baby E. To be honest I’ve already started buying for him— clothes, shoes, and lots of toys.

But something else I’m planning, or have been since I learned about Gina’s pregnancy is items to create a fun and inviting nursery. The room was painted before baby came home but it’s still missing some key elements to really jazz it up— a rug and wall decor.

1385133894_128044122486cBaby’s E’s nursery will have a safari theme— tailored around his adorable bedding with fun little giraffes, lions, elephants, and monkeys. I bought some wall decals but to complete the room (and really pull it together) it needs a nice shaggy rug.

Of course when it comes to rugs I know exactly where to go, Mohawk Home. They have the largest selection of area rugs, indoor and outdoor rugs, and washable rugs that are not only stylish but quality made in the USA. Plus, their prices are very reasonable. We own 2 of their rugs already and I know if I want a rug that will last, Mohawk is the brand to get.

After spending several hours looking at the various area rugs Mohawk has to offer, I finally made my selection— the 5 x 8 Burley Tan Shag Rug— it’s plush, it’s neutral and will look great with Baby E’s crib bedding.

I’ll tell you, the images I found of this rug really do not do it any justice. And they’re a bit deceiving (due to differences in monitors) but in this case, I’m VERY pleased with the Burley shag rug. You can’t really tell in the photo but it’s a blend of two different colors, not just one— cream and brown. Those are the base colors of Baby’s E’s bedding and they go great together!


Putting this rug up against the solid black crib, it looks amazing. And the feel is unbelievable too. I just love a dense shag rug that you can squish your toes into— this one is definitely it! Once Baby E starts to walk I know he’ll love burying his toes in it as well. hehee!

I’m impressed with the weight of the Burley shag rug too. I was a bit worried about the size and thickness (since you can’t tell by looking at a computer screen) but this one is far from thin and cheap (like many other rugs I’ve seen in stores)— you can certainly feel the quality. It feels rich and looks luxurious. Hey, I need one for MY room. hehee!


Before photo!

Eventually Baby E will have the final say in what he wants his room to look like (once he’s older) but because this rug is neutral, I’m sure he’ll have no qualms about it since it’s not “girly”.  And honestly it will “grow” with him since it doesn’t have a specific character theme.



(I know you probably want a full shot of the room but it’s not finished just yet.
Pics soon to come!)

The Burley Tan shag rug is made of 100% Olefin. It’s extremely durable and holds up great when being vacuumed unlike my old rugs that were so light the vacuum nearly sucked them up. I have no doubt this rug will last a long, long time.

It’s obvious that Mohawk Home area rugs are the premium choice when it comes to design, color and value.


Look how thick!


It’s recommended that you spot clean any soiling with a solution of mild detergent and water or have it professionally cleaned. Regular vacuuming will help the rug maintain its attractive appearance.
