America Chooses Karastan Rug for DIY Run My Renovation Home Makeover Show

DALTON, GA, September 17, 2012—Karastan’s Westridge Fog rug was selected for a basement makeover on DIY Run My Renovation, the reality show where America votes online to design someone else’s home. The half-hour episode called “Picture Perfect Basement” debuted on September 13 on the DIY Network and will air again in October.

In every episode of Run My Renovation, homeowners allow a room in their house to be completely transformed according to the whims of viewers, who vote online on everything from flooring to fixtures, cabinets to cooktops, and moldings to mantelpieces. Hosts of the DIY Network show are carpenter Joanie Dodds and licensed contractor John DeSilvia.

Westridge Fog, whichis part of Karastan’s Knightsen Collection, features relaxed traditional motifs and an updated color palette. It is both progressive yet has a classic, heirloom appeal. It is woven on Wilton looms in the USA of premium quality two-ply nylon yarn.

“With its elegance, durability and easy maintenance, Westridge Fog is a great selection for turning a basement into a cozy and inviting living space,” says Tammy Foubert, product manager of Karastan Rugs. “We are excited that the viewers of Run My Renovation selected this chic and livable Karastan rug.”
