If you follow me on instagram this morning you got a sneak peek of the rug I picked for our family room.
If you don’t follow me on instagram, here is the rug…
Last week I posted this photo on instagram…
I made the choice I did for a few reasons:
1. Price…this is a huge rug at a great price on overstock.com
2. Color…while some of the lighter backgrounds would have made the room brighter, we have two black labs and young children…light rugs would have shown more dirt and hair
3. Pattern…the floral rugs are BEAUTIFUL and I had a hard time steering away from them, but I subject my husband to lots of flowers and “pretty” things…this is a rug in the room (other than his office) that he spends the most time in, so I wanted it to lean a bit to the masculine side.
A grey day doesn’t help these photos much (I’ll have to get some better photos with good light), but I think the rug is perfect fit for grey days this coming fall and winter in the Pacific Northwest.
Can’t you just picture a fire in the fireplace, rain falling outside, and a football game on the TV?
home is…warm and cozy.
