New Carpet and Living Room Tour

New Rug

What is this? you ask. Did you stay at a tacky hotel recently? A: No! That is our new carpet. It's much too big for the room, it's busy and colorful, and I really like it. It's super thick wool, and the colors seem to change all the time in different lights.

Living Room

I think the 'ol futon needs some different throw pillows to go with the rug, but once you start down that road you find you need new end tables, and a coffee table and some matching throws and then it's too late for you. The pillows stay for now.

We switched up the shelving thang, which used to be horizontal and between the futon and the table.

Eyes Open

Check out that handsome fireplace. Surely there's something better that could go on the hearth, but I haven't figured it out, and it's good as-is.

Check out those hot moon bootie slippers and busy flower pattern. Sorry to make you jealous, this just comes naturally to me.

I love your floral carpet! Where did you buy it? The splash of color it provided to the room is a joy to look at. Two thumbs up for your decorating style.

Thanks, it's just a TJ Maxx rug, I'm not sure of the brand. It's wool, which is nice, but it sheds like CRAZY!
