BLUE-GREIGE RUG FOR THE LIVING ROOM

June 28, 2016

Our leftover red-black rug that had to come out of hiding upstairs to our living room was no longer welcome, including as just a stand-in. The black walls could not even begin to make sense while it was present.

After lots of hunting, we found our favorite – this Vienna rug.

Contrast! Depth! So much better. It is a mass produced piece, but we are so pleased because it arrived super fast and is very soft. (And having a soft rug that is also vintage at the same time is going to require lots of money since they are often so scratchy or worn).

I am considering cooking up a project of adding some tassels to give it more character and harness a little one-of-a-kind flare feelings. It would have to be just right, though and look original to the carpet, not tacked on.

Side note, astute readers will notice I exchanged these gray slipper chairs for cream. I know! After I agonized about the color. Sometimes just living with something for a while brings all the clarity.

Also, I just came into a bit of gift card money that may allow me to replace our coffee table. Please!

    Not that you need anybody’s approval, but I just love your choice! It’s subtle but still allows you to pull colors out of it and add to the details in the room. Please enjoy the choice because it looks fabulous…
