We’re rolling out our latest Washable Capsule Collection: The Hillary Style Edit! Curated to reflect the same luxe aesthetic she applies to her own Spokane home, stylist and content creator Hillary of @thehillarystyle brings her modern, organic style to this beautiful and practical assortment of washable rugs. To celebrate the launch, we sat down with her to discuss the capsule, why she loves the pieces in it, and how to create a stylish space that works for your household.
Q: What drew you to partner with Rugs USA?
A: “Rugs USA has been my go-to for finding rugs for our home for years. They have a large selection of rugs that are on trend, amazing quality, and affordable.”
Q: How would you describe your personal design aesthetic, and how is that reflected in the styles you chose for your capsule collection?
A: “My style has changed a lot over the years, and I feel at peace in a modern organic home. A modern organic home offers the perfect balance of refined style and cozy elements to create a perfectly layered and harmonious space.
“I love clean lines, muted colors with pops of contrast, and elements of nature—such as natural stone, textural fabrics, and wood accents. My goal is to create a home that is stylish, yet functional for a family of seven. My Washable Capsule Collection with Rugs USA was curated based on functionality and affordability mixed with style and classic design.”
Q: What do you look for in a good washable rug?
A: “I want a washable rug that doesn’t look like a typical washable rug! The Rugs USA washable rugs in our home are stylish, soft, luxurious, and do not look like your typical washable rug.”
Q: How are washable rugs useful for you?
A: “Simply put, our life with five kids is busy and messy. Meals are often cooked quickly and usually served several times a night. Though we have a no-shoes-in-the-house rule, kids run in and out of the door in football cleats and dirty tennis shoes. I need rugs that can withstand spills and dirt, and washable rugs are a must-have in our home.”
Q: What is your experience with other washable rugs, and why do you recommend the Rugs USA washables?
A: “I have used washable rugs in our home for years, but the difference with Rugs USA washable rugs is that they do not look or feel like a typical washable rug. I don’t have to sacrifice style for functionality because Rugs USA makes it possible to have both. It’s high-quality design that is affordable and stylish.”
Q: What are your top three favorite rugs in this capsule collection, and why?
A: “This is a tough question because I love all of them!
“My favorite rug for a high-traffic and functional space would have to be the Anzlie Faded Washable Indoor/Outdoor Rug that’s in our dining room and kitchen. It is an indoor/outdoor rug that does not look like a washable rug. It’s beautiful, high-style and quality, and easily washable.
“The Milazia Honeycomb Plush Cloud Washable Rug outside our primary suite is hands down the softest rug I have ever felt. It’s plush, and the subtle pattern and color are very luxurious. My daughter loves this rug and wants me to order it for her bedroom, as well.
“I can definitely see why the Washable Solid Shag Rug is a Rugs USA best seller. It is so soft, and the color options are beautiful. Everyone that walks into our office comments on how beautiful and cozy it is.”
Q: If you could give someone only one piece of advice for styling rugs, what would it be?
A: “Rugs set the tone for a space. They act as an anchor and are the initial layering piece to your overall design. The first thing I do when styling a space is think about functionality and how the space will be used. A kitchen is a high-traffic area that requires a more durable and, often, low-pile rug; whereas, a bedroom should feel serene and cozy with a soft, plush rug. Once I establish the right type of rug for a space, then I choose based on color and design. I tend to lean toward more subtle patterns and colors that are versatile and will blend with seasonal décor.”
Q: What’s a fun fact about you?!
A: “I have always loved design and creating a beautiful and welcoming home. Even as a teenager, when I received money as a gift, I would immediately purchase something for my bedroom instead of clothing. It has always been a passion of mine.”
