Adding Warmth To Your Kitchen With One Simple Piece

Most people think a kitchen is a dangerous place for textiles, myself included. The kitchen is actually the area in our home we spend the most time in and let's just say foot traffic, crumbs, spills, and grease are going to happen. I have always loved the look of a rug under the dining table but just know I would regret it however a runner is a different story. As you can see from the photo below, we have a long narrow space in our kitchen closest to the cabinets where we cook and wash dishes, etc.and it desperately needed something to warm and tie kitchen and dining room together. Our space had several runners at one time but our oldest pup Melvin was a puppy then and decided to eat single one of them. Laugh out loud. Now that he is older and well mannered, we were ready to pull the plug on the perfect piece.

We found the perfect runner from Article. You all know how much I love this brand. We recently just did a whole living room makeover with Article  that you can check out here. 

Article's Jota Runner is the most perfect way to warm up any kitchen. It was the perfect match with our floors and cabinets and it just feels so good under your feet, especially if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen like we do. Having a very white kitchen can feel cold sometimes, so I really wanted to decorate with lots of texture as I feel it adds so much warmth to a cool room.  With the Jota runner, we can actually “feel” the texture with our eyes as well as our hands and feet.

This runner is durable and organic. Tonal shades of natural jute are twisted and braided tightly to create a textured base for this long-wearing material. Recycled Indian sari silk is layered throughout—a beautiful homage to its original roots. The weave is just gorgeous. And it's made for this  high traffic area of ours. It's so easy to clean too should an accident arise. We just spot clean only with a dry cloth. Loose threads should be trimmed with scissors too. 

 We love this runner so much that we are deciding which color to do for the master bedroom hallway leading to the restroom.

You guys should definitely check out Article.  

Article delivers original modern furniture direct to you. You get high-quality furniture at radically lower (and much fairer) prices than you would at a typical furniture retailer. No showrooms. No Salespeople. I love that part best of all because it just takes so much unneeded stress away from the situation. And the shipping is fantastic and fair. Flat rate shipments are only $49 no matter how large your order is. Small shipments like this beautiful runner would only be $19. You can also choose from affordable upgrade options for in-room delivery and assembly at checkout and their delivery crews are the most professional organized group of people I have ever worked with. 

Nervous about buying furniture on line?! Don't be. You have 30 days to try it out and if you're not completely happy with your articles they will have them picked up and refund the product you decide to return, less shipping fees. 

I have attached the link for their runners! Help us decide on our bedroom hallway please!!!
