‘Tis what I do. I remember reading a blog post by Michelle Kohanzo (Managing Director of The Land of Nod) and loving that she describes herself as “changing rugs like most women change their sheets.” YES.
Anyway, with every tweak and addition (or take away), the double parlors are getting closer and closer to what I would consider done. After trying out the layered rug trend, I’m certain it’s not for me. I still wanted a rug down though, at least in the back parlor, and preferably something plush.
Ta da — plush, the right size, affordable (relatively), with just a bit of pink.
Obviously that’s not a styled photo (I held the camera in one hand and the baby in the other, and took a quick snap), but you get the idea. This is the rug, close up.
I’m forever arranging and rearranging the library, wishing that black and white striped sofa was 18″ smaller, but it’s working. I’m thinking of adding a matching rug in there too. I only hesitate because really? A couple of huge, almost all-white rugs in a house with three young kids, a dog, and a couple of cats? Eh, I think it will work. They’re wool, which cleans up nicely, and we have a big runner in the entryway so nobody would be stepping directly on the white rugs after coming in from outside.
Pretend there’s a rug inside those two measuring tapes, deal? I think that having a rug to define the library’s floor plan will help. (Magically shrinking the sofa would help, too.)
