Picking Out An Outdoor Rug

Well the weather has been so sucky lately.  Rain followed by more rain with some rain on top.  So pretty much the only thing I'm getting done is online perusing.  We still haven't been able to finish painting the porch because of the weather.  So I'm focusing on picking out things for the porch if the sun ever makes an appearance again. We have a small furniture set from our old house that needs a fresh coat of paint, but I'm not sure what color I want to paint it.  It will come to me eventually.  In the meantime I'm starting with picking out a rug.  Here's some options that I like.

Obviously I'm drawn to the more geometric patterns as opposed to the floral, which I think might be the complete opposite to what I'm drawn to in fabric. Hmm. Now to make a decision. Actually, if I'm being completely truthful, I bought one of these but I'll wait to show you when it's on the porch...if it ever stops raining.

    I started shopping for one, too....and then I just stopped. Not even sure why, but I think you get it.

  6. Well, I'm partial to the Home Decorators Espana...considering we recently just ordered the border version ourselves (though for under our kitchen table)...not here yet. I agree with you geometrics on the ground, put your florals in the pillows. Here's to sunny days ahead!

  8. I love the ones from One Kings Lane. I wish they shipped to Canada :(
    We could use an outdoor rug for our backyard patio.
