Spring Porch Decor with Dash & Albert

By Kate Riley April 22, 2015

Hello everyone, don’t mind me I’m just feeling the softness of this new rug under my toes! I’ve been the biggest fan of Dash & Albert rugs for years, oh yes I’ve got one in my dining room, one in my living room, one in my son’s room, and I used a Dash & Albert striped runner on this staircase makeover.

The Poppy Leaf outdoor rug is my latest acquisition – part of the new PET line of rugs from the Annie Selke company bringing all of us stylish rugs that are family and pet friendly. These rugs are fabulous quality, easy to clean, and so soft I marvel at how they are washable outdoor rugs!

And there’s a cozy Citrus throw to go along with it in another pretty shade of green, a hue I never tire of since the verdant color is everywhere we look outside. I was invited by Annie’s team to style a few of their new products for spring on the small porch at the Las Vegas fixer upper house since I recently painted the front door and replaced the door handle so I happily accepted (I moved the previous rug to the rear sliding door.)

For the porch I chose the Poppy Leaf rug for pattern, the Mingled Turquoise pillow for color, and the apple Nautilus pillow for fun.

  1. Kate, you have the best giveaways! I have loved seeing all of the Dash & Albert rugs in your home over the years. I really love this new design. The pillows are such a great addition and really make it feel welcoming.

  2. I just recently purchased an “indoor/outdoor” rug to go by my front door. My concern is, my front porch isn’t covered. Even though it’s indoor/outdoor, I’m so worried it will ruin. Are these rugs intended for covered areas outside?

    • Hi Shari, the outdoor rugs are intended for both covered and uncovered, they’re made from recycled polyester which allows them to hold up to sun and moisture.

  3. Beautiful as expected, Kate!! Such soothing colors! Love the nautilus pillow!!

  4. Beautiful rugs… love the indoor / outdoor look and have done that in our dining room and foyer area!! :) … On another note… how do I know I have entered?? Nothing happened when I attempted to fill in the info ??

    • I’ll follow up Terri, thank you for letting me know there is no confirmation…

  5. A perfect jute area rug for my living room! Dan and Albert are new to me…liove❤️

  6. I think I’m in!
    I have several Dash & Albert rugs, and a few more on my wish list.
    So gracious is this give a way!
    Thank you,

  7. That’s a tough choice…I’m needing small entryway rugs, but I really like the indoor /outdoor rugs and what they do for an area. great color choices ,too.

  8. Not sure why but I can’t get my entry to go through. I’ve tried both clicking on the image above and going to the “right here”. I get to the same page, fill in the info (including the rug I’d LOVE to win) but when I hit the pin and submit button, nothing happens. I’ve tried refreshing the page. Nada.

    • Hi Kim and everyone… they’re checking on any glitches and Terri I’m told some people who entered their information didn’t actually pin an image to a board, it’s a Pinterest-specific contest, but they D&A team will email all of those who entered but didn’t pin to let them know.

  9. I have not had luck using the indoor/outdoor rugs on my front porch in front of the door. The wind keeps blowing them up and folding them over. I’ve tried various adhesives on the rug but nothing sticks very well on the concrete front porch. Any thoughts?

    • That’s tricky Jen if you have wind issues, sometimes the rubber backed outdoor rugs have more weight to them.

  10. Well, I couldn’t get an image to pin either! I was feeling really dense so glad I’m not alone!

  11. LOVE Dash & Albert rugs! I’m actually thinking of using an outdoor rug inside in my kitchen.
    I couldn’t get an image to PIN either. Help! :)
