a lovely living

Welcome Home

Many of us put a lot of time into decorating our homes with the expectation of making them feel warm and welcoming. One of my favorite compliments I receive is when friends tell me our house feel home-y. Although we spend most of our time indoors, the first way to provide a friendly welcome is before they even step in the front door. Layering a rug under a doormat has become quite the trend over the past few years and it’s one that I absolutely love. It’s so simple, yet you can add so much style and personality with the quick addition of an outdoor rug. There are so many fun options out there, so I decided to take some time and play around, mixing and matching to find some great pairs. I’d recommend that your base rug is at least 3 x 5, if not larger. Each home and entryway is different so you’ll need to work with your space, but I used a 4 x 6 on our front porch and enjoy the slightly more dramatic look. Below are eight different layered looks to get your wheels spinning. Work with what you have and play around until you find a fun match that fits your home and personality!
