DASH AND ALBERT RUGS




Monday is described as the day of the week between Sunday and Tuesday.  Whatever Wikipedia.

I have another description of it and it ain't pretty :)

Especially the Monday after vacation.....which can pretty much be like hitting a brick wall.....sobering you up quickly.......  like "get the heck out of that vacation fog" cause life is about to rain down on you in a "bad ass Mr T" kind of way.

No worries....I got this.

Stripe rugs.  We love them.  

If you have not heard of Dash and Albert then you are gonna love this.  They have been around since 2003.  

Take a look.....


I just got their new summer catalog.  Wowza.

Pink chevron goodness.


Stripey stripeness. In every color.
Most of them come in 2.5 by 8 ft  runners also.....


Can you imagine this kitchen without the rug?

Or this hallway? 


This one is from their new summer collection.
And this...yellow and pink and mint.

Poufs!
Last summer I did a porch for a client and used one of their indoor/outdoor rugs as my inspiration for the space.


I was over there the other day and the rug still looks new.

I also have one in my kitchen and when it gets dirty I can take that bad boy out and hose it off.

On the plus side their prices are great.  Go here and pick one out to brighten up your room for summer.

Colorful stripe rugs are the new pillows....as in how to change up yo room.

A few people asked me about the size of my foyer stripes....they are 10" wide and there are 4 black ones and 5 white ones.  My white is BM White Dove and the black is just Home Depot black paint.  Nothing fancy.

 The paint color for the stripes in my nephews dining room was Sherwin Williams Anonymous 7046.


Don't let Monday get you down.....

Shabam!

I love Dash & Albert rugs and own several. Mostly little ones and then I ordered a 6 x 9 plaid one a couple weeks ago for the sunroom from their site. Wayfair sells them and says free shipping, but they are cheaper from the D&A site even with the shipping.

I was just looking at all their new goodness online last night! We have one in our Master Bath and I love it. Wanting to pick up a few more.

Not wanting to be Debbie Downer here, but my D&A rugs drive me crazy. I have a huge one under my big farm table and its a bear to keep clean. The vacuum sucks it up every time and you can only vacuum it on the bias and then it gets all wrinkly. Also, every time we moves chairs in and out, more wrinkles. I have yet to figure out how to deep clean it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I have a Dash and Albert striped runner and i love it. It says to have it dry cleaned, but i threw it in the wash and draped it across a lawn chair to dry, and it is just fine...

I got that catalog last week too - am always still amazed those who have never heard of D&A! Love the new rope weave - saw them in person and they are terrific, although a bit more pricey than the others.

Monday - blech! But my roots are getting a much needed touch-up today so that make it WAY better.

Sherry- Oh, I love a great striped rug! Annie Selke is such a great designer, her Dash and Albert rugs are so pretty!

I just bought a Tom Felicia Safavieh wool/vicose rug for our living room. The only thing the D&A striped rugs are not is plush. (when I sit on the floor I crave plush)

I took a month blogging break and I'm finally back with a new website (and blog!) Please come visit me! EcoHappy Style.com

The Buzz Blog said...

We're huge fans of Dash & Albert and have invested in their outdoor rugs for indoors - with dogs and boys, it's the best way to go! Thanks for stopping by The Buzz - we hope you enjoyed your visit.

I have a couple of Dash and Albert rugs. Real workhorses. Had one at the lake for a couple of years and it still looks great. It's here at home now, ready for service somewhere when the whim strikes to change out a rug.

The Pink Pagoda said...

Dash and Albert is fantastic. I think I have to have that navy and white stripe in the kitchen. I'll tell my husband you are to thank for this new purchase : )

Debra Phillips said...

René said...
