Simply Dashing! by Lady of the House

Now that our little one is (ahem!) enjoying meals with us, I've been plotting ways to protect the ground beneath her. Despite my best efforts to keep things neat, inevitably a long-handled spoon flops from a little dish, she loses those little bits of banana and of course there's always the ever-dreaded sneeze. I had it in mind to make my own so-called splat mat with some pretty oilcloth fabric, and of course I could just as easily order one, but I can't bring myself to make the house look like a daycare center.

To my extreme delight, I learned today that one of my favorite rug companies, Dash and Albert, also offers several of their designs in indoor/outdoor fabric, or as they put it, "superheroic polypropylene." Are you picturing beach mats? I was too, but check them out and you'll see why they bothered to throw 'indoor' beside 'outdoor' when they went to market. They're lovely, and supposedly they can be scrubbed, hosed down and even bleached if necessary. I believe this may be the perfect dining room rug--kids or no kids. But with all the sizes on offer and prices this reasonable, I may put one in every room!

  1. I love Dash and Albert rugs! I don't have one, but I've been ogling them at the shops recently. May have to bite the bullet and pick one up!

  2. How awesome! I definitely want to look into these rugs!
