A Pretty Hallway & A Runner Giveaway!

Hallway Rug Runner

I have an obsession with rugs- runners in specific. I’m always trading out my hallway runner and love the way it so easily transforms the space. We’ve teamed up with ecarpetgallery and are giving away a free runner! 

Hallway Runner

I recently purchased this rug and am so happy with how it looks in my home (you guys know how I feel about green)… I love the subtle accents. I honestly can’t believe that I only paid $100 for an authentic wool rug (what?!!). I caught it during a sale and it definitely felt like a steal. Finn is pretty content with this pick, too… He’s been napping here lately.

I love the way it anchors my hall with bold pattern and compliments the color palette of my home. It really was the perfect find. Previously, I had this runner installed…but I think the new (above) option is more me. Which look do you guys prefer?

Aside from rugs, maybe I have a thing for hallways too? Do you guys remember this hallway makeover post? I probably just like having a designated place to add a runner. Where would you place your runner if you win?

Enter to Win (CLOSED):
1. Follow ecarpetgallery on Instagram
2. Like ecarpetgallery on Facebook
3. Comment below and let us know which room in your house needs a runner.

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for entering and congratulations to Laurie for winning a runner!

    We downsized to a 1966 single level brick ranch in desperate need of a complete overhaul. We are living with a patchwork of original hardwoods full of carpet tacks, two types of beat up laminate, vinyl tile, retro pink ceramic tile, and last but not least TWO rooms of subfloor!
    Our hallway is dark, long, and narrow. It needs a lovely ray of sunshine to disguise its time worn laminate and give it a vision for the future!

    I like the way your new runner doesn’t steal all the attention in the hallway. It brings everything together and you end up noticing all the details. I would use a runner in the hallway of our upstairs. It’s similar to the look of your hallway. Mine too would have dogs laying on it, it seems whenever I get a new rug they think it’s a new dog bed :) I Love Finns eyes in that picture ugh he’s so handsome.

    My entryway needs a runner in a bad way. For some reason the previous owners put tile in there even though it is open to the living room that has hardwood. It is a weird transition and the tile is just beige and blah. It needs a runner.

Would love a great rug to try and pull things together!

    We have been in our new farmhouse inspired home just at a year now and I still haven’t pulled the trigger on forever rugs in most of our rooms. My number one priority is a long runner for the kitchen with the master bath and powder room both a close second. I have a highly neutral design aesthetic so finding the perfect rug that fits the bill but still makes a statement has been a challenge. Posted a photo of my kitchen on instagram just the other day
