PDQuick! Outdoor Rugs

PDQuick Tip:  To make a big impact for relatively little decorating dollar, consider using outdoor area rugs inside.  Typically made from woven polypropylene, area rugs designed for outdoor use are tough, weather resistant, fade resistant, and easy to clean.  And best of all, they're available in a beautiful and colorful array of designs for a fraction of the cost associated with more traditional indoor rugs.   More and more manufacturers and home furnishings stores are starting to recognize the market for these versatile and inexpensive pieces and are beginning to offer them in more varieties and colors than ever before.  Some of my favorite sources include Grandinroad, Frontgate, Ballard Designs, and Horchow.  You can literally get a striking rug in an 8 x 10 size for as little as $150.00.  Some stores wisely market these rugs as "indoor/outdoor", but all are equally suitable for a deck as well as a family room.
