Casa Quickie: Cool Down With Mats

Gaiam at ShopStyle

Since Summer is fast approaching, I have been thinking about some ways to make seasonal changes in my home. While I think a good shag rug is great for creating a cozy wintry vibe in your home, when the temperature rises, it's time to switch it up. To achieve a cooler look and feel to combat the heat of Spring and Summer, go with a flat weave Dhurrie or plastic floor matting instead. This durable Floral Pattern Reversible All-Weather Floor Mat ($39), which is made entirely from recycled soda bottles, is a great option, and it will stand up well to messy foot traffic as you come in from your garden or the beach.

Casa, you should totally do a search for outdoor rugs. I'm having issues finding affordable outdoor rugs.

I've been looking for a rug and this fits the bill (or floor, in my case). Esp. w/the reversible component. I am all for multitasking items.
