I first saw Dash and Albert rugs when we stayed at bed and breakfast that was built in 1741. The B & B owner had a Dash and Albert rug on the floor inside the front door. A smaller, 2×3 version made an appearance on the floor in the bathroom of our room. I was instantly struck by the modernity of this accessory in such an old New England structure.They’ve done an impeccable job on the interior design of the B & B itself. I was particularly impressed by how they incorporated the trend of geometric rugs we’ve seen in home decor. By picking a neutral straw color that doesn’t compete with the rest of the vintage and transitional decor, the rug just belongs in that old 1741 space. See below? We have ever-classic spooled and spindled turned table legs sitting upon vintage hex tile – it looks so fresh and current with these geometric rugs! Dash and Albert describe the easy maintenance and care of these Diamond indoor/outdoor rugs best:
Diamonds (and polypropylene) are forever.
A rug for all seasons. Made of superheroic polypropylene, our indoor/outdoor area rugs are terrific for high-traffic areas and muddy messes. Scrubbable, bleachable and UV-treated for outdoor use, this collection of woven rugs can stand up to all that you dish out.Every choice I have made on our renovation project has been about utilitarianism. What choices can I make for our home so that I am not a virtual slave to my stuff? From the indestructible poured concrete floors and Shaker Peg Rail to the integrated kitchen appliances -You won’t find me chasing down fingerprints on the Stainless Steel, no Ma’am! I want each inch of our home to be a usable, low-maintenance, utilitarian space. “We only use that fill-in-the-blank on special occasions.” is not in the vocabulary. Self-indulgent? Maybe. But life is short. Why not eat off “the good china” everyday? Dash and Albert rugs are available online, as well as in fine boutiques. You bet that light blue and ivory one could be making an appearance in The Country House!
