I’m under the belief that if there’s room for a rug, add one. I don’t know what it is about a piece of fabric that makes a house feel like a home, but they instantly pull a room together. This boho rug is ideal as a kitchen runner, a bathroom mat, or a welcome mat.
Immediately Dress Up Your Room With This Rug
