Office Makeover - love the Devour Cowhide Rug

Remember when I decided to take back the seldom used guest room?

The bed has been moved to my daughter’s room, the sunroom desk has been hauled up three flights of stairs (sorry hubby!), supplies have been removed from the craft armoire in the living room and the best part …

a new cowhide rug!

Not just any cowhide rug – this is a blinged out cowhide rug that makes my heart go pitter patter – it’s from and it even has a fun name – Devour Cowhide!

Silver Metallic Cowhide Rug - it's gorgeous!

It adds the perfect amount of glam to my very own mom cave/office/craft room.

It’s the first step in my plan for world domination …

I mean furnishing the office.

White Cowhide Rug in this office

I was like a kid in a candy store browsing through all of the choices at and I love that they will beat any competitor’s price!

Devour Cowhide Rug - love the metallic shine!

This is phase one in my office renovation saga …

will Kelly get more furniture?

will she paint and if so, what color?

how will she organize her overflowing amount of supplies that threaten to bury her alive?

I know you’re on the edge of your seat – so stay tuned.

  1. What a great giveaway! I commented about the 2003 Shells rug. It is just the right blue and with the shells on it, works perfectly in my family room. So many beautiful rugs though it was hard to choose! The shells rug is in the Sonesta collection.

  2. First of all… I can’t pick just one to live without. There are TONS to pick from that I love. I think HWS01 (Charcoal, Gold) would look awesome in our office! I commented on HWS01 (Charcoal, Gold)

  3. Great giveaway, and I like your cowhide! I would love VR-43 (Beige)
    from Veranda by Momeni in my dining room of my 100 year old home, would really warm up the dark hardwood floors.

  4. I really like the STL165A Multi, I commented on it. It looks like a piece of modern Art, would be a Great Source of inspiration in my Art Room. I love what you have done, your cowhide rug & desk looks like a high end plush urban loft. I need to cut down on the clutter, I think if I had something this beautiful on the floor, I would want to be able to show it off. Great giveaway thank you.

  5. Searched for awhile, but couldn’t find a comment section on the website. Love the 8 in round Art 193 (line brown)-reminds me so much of spring (can’t wait to get out in the garden, but have a few months to go…..) Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  6. I love the Kaleen Botany Fennel rug in blue! I swear I’ve seen this rug before & have loved it for a long time. It would look great in our dining room of our 1890’s home! I have the exact same color blue walls as the rug & a pumpkin orange ceiling 🙂 So pretty and bold. I pinned it to my Pinterest board “a whole lotta rugs.”

  7. Hi! Love your rug choice! We just moved to Florida and the SandDollar rug in dark beige would be perfect! Thank you for your generous giveaway! 🙂

  8. I’m a big fan of products made in the US, so any of those from the American Rug Craftsman line is what I would choose. I couldn’t find a comment section on their web site, so this is it from me! Happy decorating!

  9. Kelly great giveaway, since our home isn’t finished yet I am guessing 5’1 x 8 traditional rug may work in our new foyer. Such beauties to pick from in these choices. Sure I could pick one.
