If you already have kids or you're a mama-to-be, you may know that the struggle is REAL when trying to find simple, non-colorful play mats for your home. 

We have hardwood floors so I feel that having a soft play surface is necessary. In our 1100 square foot house, it is so easy for things to look cluttered!

Since we don't have a playroom, but we don't use our dining room much, we decided to turn it into a "room we play in and sometimes eat in" situation. This room is right off of the kitchen and the living room, so no matter what door you enter in (front door or back door), you are going to see this room. 

Lucky for me, I stumbled upon these BEAUTIFUL play mats from Little Nomad just before Emaline's first birthday. As a regularly used part of our home, I wanted something versatile. 

I cannot say enough good things about these! Not only are they gorgeous to look at, but they are realistic! Super easy to put together and super easy to clean. Also, our dog has been ALL over the mat and hasn't made any indentions with her nails (I'm shocked!!). 

Bottom line: If you're looking for a play mat that doesn't take away from the decor in your home --- look no further. These are seriously STUNNING and almost look like a rug. The exact play mat we have is here (the 6x8 play mat in 'dusk'). 

On top of the fact that these are practical AND pretty... I love supporting mama-run businesses. The woman behind these play mats is a total mom boss and it all started with her idea. She took it and ran with it and has created such a beautiful thing! How inspiring is that?!
