Coffee colored carpet

| 3 Comments

You've probably seen my carpet peeking out in photos on this site. Like here in this picture of my office from November.

It's the most impractical pale beige color. What I really need is something the color of coffee. Because this carpet which started out pristine when we moved in a year ago is now mottled with little coffee splashes.

Despite attempts to clean them up, those coffee blips and blops have worked their way into the carpet and show up as tiny circular shadows. Coffee pastilles, pale cocoa sprinkles on cappucino foam. Scars of clumsy morning walks through the hall.

Minor html mistake there, Kristen. :)

By the way, there's this nifty carpet cleaner called Spot Magic that will get out relatively everything (even blood) without a lot of work, too. Spray it on the spot. Let it sit for 60 seconds, then rub at it with a damp cloth. Takes all of 1.5 minutes to remove it.

My family has 2 dogs, a cat, and 3 avid coffee drinkers, so spot remover is a commodity.

I hate carpet. Go flooring!

"Natures Miracle" is also a kick ass spot remover if we are trading housekeeping tiips.

"Carpet sucks" if we are sharing interior design opinions. I dream of the day when every piece of furniture I own is on casters, rolling freely across vast hardwood floors. If they would only perfect that wireless Tesla-style power... In the meantime I figure I will set the place up with a conductive ceiling like bumper-cars.
