Welcome to the second installment of a new monthly series, “Rugs Through the Years!” Throughout this year-long series, we’ll highlight 12 of our best-selling rugs, and present a few ways each fan favorite has been styled since its debut. As the cherry on top, we’ll be giving away the featured rug to one lucky reader each month!

Last month, we highlighted our Neapolitan Rug and this month, we’re looking back on our striped Stone Soup Rug, offered in both woven cotton and indoor/outdoor styles.

The perfect punch of color in any space, this best-seller features bright stripes of red, orange, pink, citrus, and sky against a sage green base. Let’s take a look at a few ways Stone Soup has been styled in years past…

Colorful Farmhouse Bedroom

We styled our happy-hued Lyric Paisley and Lyric Stripe bedding alongside our Stone Soup rug to create a colorful, personality-filled sleep oasis.

This space utilizes a consistent color palette creating a cohesive design that isn’t too matchy-matchy.


Stone Soup Stairway

Kate Riley of Centsational Girl, documented her friend Kara’s dramatic DIY renovation in 2014, which transformed her previously unfinished and blah-looking staircase to bold and beautiful with help from a little paint and a few Dash & Albert Stone Soup runners!

We just love how our colorful rugs put some pep in these steps!


Modern Palm Springs Living Room

For our Palm Springs catalog, we styled our Stone Soup rug in a mid-century modern-style living room.

The pops of chartreuse and coral in the rug are perfectly accented by the decorative pillows and bold sofa. Who wouldn’t want to get cozy in this bright and happy living room?

I had been hoping for a Stone Soup rug of my very own for our camp. When I finally received the rug and put it in place I was thrilled with the quality and colors. I should not have waited so long to order one. I love the rugs in this collection and now have my eye on another one. Great job everyone!

I love the farmhouse bedroom! Here in SoCal it’s (almost) always sunny so these colors would look amazing lit up in our home. My daughters room needs a rug and this would really seal the deal with her beachy theme.

I like the “sleep oasis” with the mix of colorful stripes and paisley. Annie Selke linens are teaching me to be more creative about using patterns in my home!

I love this rug. That touch of orange could go anywhere in my home.

I love the Modern Palm Springs Living Room. The combination of a cottage style rug with modern furniture just works. It’s not matchy-matchy. The room has personality and you won’t find another one that looks exactly like it.

I love the farmhouse bedroom. I love how it mixes in different colors but still provides a warm cozy feeling.

I’m in love with the Stone Soup rug! The colorful farmhouse bedroom is by far my favorite use as it brings back memories of my childhood at my grandparents’ farm. This is such a classic! Thanks for the inspiration.

Love the stairs and bedroom. Crisp and fabulous!

I love the stairs, but that’s no surprise since we have Cat’s Paw carpets laid end to end as our stair runner. They have held up very well over 7 years.

My favorite is the stairway – because it shows me what kind of transformation is possible! I have a similar “before” staircase and am now inspired to make it as lovely as your “after.”

Love the stairs I have an awful set of basement stairs and this picture inspires me to change it up.

Lindsay April 25, 2017 at 7:51 pm

This is such a happy rug! It really works in any room, in any style. I think the stairs are my favorite-they look super inviting. I’ve been lusting after this rug for a while, I first saw it in a Garnet Hill catalog.

I love the stairs makes them look so fresh and bright.

Mary April 26, 2017 at 8:30 am

I love how the stairway/hallway comes alive by simply adding a runner in Stone Soup!

Carrie April 26, 2017 at 12:54 pm

My favorite is the stairway – it’s the perfect way to add color!

Mary Putnam April 29, 2017 at 4:32 pm

I love the stairs! An ordinary staircase becomes colorful!!
