We’ve come to the last look in this edition of Making it Yours. True to the spirit of the series, you see a few pieces showing up again from previous looks. The lamp and vases were both in the first design, and now they’re being used again for this home office/library. In fact, the blue chair previously shown would look great in here as well.
I feel like this is the most traditional pairing of the rug with furniture, but there’s still a sense of fun. That portrait certainly helps, eh? I know it’s weird, but I love it. In fact, it will soon be winging its way to my house because as I put together the rest of the design, I couldn’t bear the thought of someone else buying it! I thought about replacing it with a more traditional portrait, but Hipster Jesus stays in the picture.
We’ve seen the same traditional rug in three different designs now. This library/home office space, a living room with a bit of pink, and another living room with a cool color palette. It was an interesting creative exercise for me, since I wouldn’t normally choose such a formal rug, and I hope you enjoyed seeing how it could be updated to work with a more modern style. Which was your favorite from this edition?
