New Favorite: Dash and Albert Striped Rug

Dash and Albert Aqua Striped Runner Rug in Laundry Room by Unskinny Boppy

Let’s all give a warm welcome to the newest addition to my laundry room, this awesome Dash and Albert aqua striped rug runner.  I’ve had my eye on a rug like this for years, and finally I found The One.  He is perfect for my new aqua laundry room

He’s 30” wide and 8 feet long and looks like he was custom made for the hallway leading to my laundry.  I purchased him brand new from Ebay, and the seller had all different sizes available.  This rug is SO similar to the one in my inspiration photo, and I just love it so much. 

Actually I believe this one is way prettier than the one from my inspiration photo. 

What do you think? Here is my inspiration:

Now I know that my laundry room can’t hold a candle to that window-filled room o’ perfection shown above so just compare the rugs, please! Smile

Also, you might notice another new addition to the bench–the aqua chevron pillow.  I scored it at Hobby Lobby last week when I went in searching for chevron picture frames.   I couldn’t resist, so he came home with me.  But after joining in a big Hometalk flame-free confessional twitter chat last night (search hashtag #askhometalk if you want to see the posts) I found out that the majority of design gals on there think the chevron craze is on it’s way out. 

So I figured I’d better blog about this sucker before the chevron train leaves the station.  Well, I’ve gotta run…  I still have two chevron picture frames to hang and enjoy for a minute before I take them down and repaint them with the next new thing!


PS- Just kidding! My official stance is if you love something, keep it in your house as long as it makes you happy.

I may have Silver Sage paint until I’m 79.

Speak Your Mind



  1. Love the rug, and I’m still completely aboard the chevron train {I hopped on a tad late ;)} so I love the pillow! The space is looking great Beth!

  2. I love your laundry room, especially your color choices. That rug makes the colors in the curtain pop and really pulls the room together! As for Chevron, there is always a new trend on the horizon, that’s what makes design fun and fresh. However, the key to enjoying your home is to fill it with the things you love, whether ‘on trend’ or ‘out of style’.

  3. Love the rug! Oh my goodness…chervon is on the way out! Thanks for the heads up! 😉

  4. I love your laundry room and the rug is perfect. Hugs, Marty

  5. Wow the colors are perfect! Looks good!!

  6. This rug is fabulous! I love Dash and Albert and almost had Ryan convinced to put a runner or two as a stair runner over our wooden stairs. Then we bought the land and new projects were vetoed. But you’d better believe I’ll
    Have some stripes dash and Albert in my life at the next house.

    Ps. I think your laundry room is fabulous.

  7. Ooo I bet this rug would ROCK in a kitchen. It’s made of polypropelene so it’s very sturdy and easy to clean ( I HOPE!)

  8. Beth
    your laundryroom is beautiful and happy. Love the colors. You choose such bright cheery colors for here. I am curious why you dont incorperate more c olors in the main parts of your house? ( which I love the other rooms) just curious

  9. Your rug is perfect for your laundry room! Looks like such a happy place.

    Thanks for linking up to the Color party!


  11. Oh my, it is the perfect addition! Love it!

  12. I adore Dash & Albert rugs! And how much fun was that Twitter chat where everyone turned against Chevron!!

  13. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for newbie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  14. I write a comment whenever I like a article on a website or if I
    have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    It is a result of the passion communicated in the post I read.
    And after this article New Favorite: Dash and Albert Striped Rug – Unskinny Boppy.
    I was actually moved enough to post a comment 🙂 I actually do have 2 questions for you
    if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or does it look like like some of the responses look like they are written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would
    like to follow you. Would you list the complete urls of your community sites
    like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
