A Magic Carpet Ride
To me…one of the most important elements when designing a room…is the rug. After over a decade of apartment living where you couldn’t paint walls…I’ve come to utilize them as a bold graphic statement, as well as adding a lot of color and personality to a room. I really love rugs. I think all rooms need them, and I am not a snob about putting an area rug ontop of carpet. I love the layers!
Since the purchase of our new home…and we’ll be moving on April 10th (omg, that’s so soon! I’m so excited!!) I’m in major planning stages for the decor. I have always wanted to be able to decorate a house to my style and have no limits (well, except for budget). Terry has pretty much given me free reign as long as it isn’t hideous (he did nix my fav rug choice, but I’m okay with our backups).
So, without further adieu, here are our rug choices.
This was my favorite choice. An absolutly fabulous area rug from Anthropologie. Terry hated it, though. His response, specifically, was “Is that a peacock?”:
Then these were our two runners up, (1) Blue Stripes
(2) Modern fern-shapes
What do you think? I’m still looking, nothing is set in stone yet. Don’t you love putting a room together? I’m having a ball!
