Five on Friday (Rugs for the Breakfast Nook)

For Five on Friday with Darci, April, Christina, and Natasha today, I have five related things (rugs, to be exact) that are inspiring me in my search for an area rug.

I mentioned in the post about our breakfast area that I'm looking for a rug to put under the table to replace the big-box-store area rug I bought for $25 in college. It got paint and other nastiness on it during the renovation or it would still be in use in our home.

But, I am too classy to keep a paint-stained rug forever, so I am rug shopping and hoping for some birthday money to pick up something a bit more pricy than my college self would have chosen. I will probably end up at HomeGoods or Tuesday Morning, but here are a few "inspiration" pieces that will inform what I look for at the discount stores.

{one} Moroccan Trellis Rug
{two} Honeycomb Rug
{three}Turquoise Rug
{four}Kilim Rug
{five} Target Rug

Obviously, I'm looking for a simple geometric pattern and color galore. I'll be sure to let you know what I wind up deciding on and how it fits into the breakfast area. Don't you love option four? If money grew on trees, hopefully I would choose to feed widows and orphans, but if I had any left over, I would buy that rug in a heartbeat. Happy (rug) hunting, and have a great weekend!
