I've already switched things up. The rug above is beautiful and I did love it, but after having it down for a little bit, something started to bother me about it. I think perhaps the green in it was too subtle and made our green couch look strange in the room. Or maybe it was just too busy. Or maybe there was too much red and orange for my liking. Or maybe it was the curves of the couch with the paisley print that made things just too curvy for me. I don't know what it was exactly, but it didn't feel right, so it got returned. I was a little sad because it was a fantastic deal at $199 for an 8'x10' wool rug. Ah well.
I replaced it with the Olin Rug from Crate and Barrel:
This rug was exactly what I had in mind after I landed on my inspiration image for this room:
See the black and white striped rug by the credenza? Olin makes me so happy. And while I don't have black chairs next to the credenza, yet, I did play with our floral Pier 1 chairs, so the room is currently looking like this:
The chevron pillows were from Target on clearance for $6.48 each. The letter pillows were from this post.
Next up on the list of projects for this room:
1. Art on the wall behind the couch
2. Curtain Rod and Curtains
3. Perhaps a big mirror for singing productions by Lucky and Charm (They are mirror singers, and I love their shows.)
4. Black Chairs or Slipcovers
Has anyone else been return happy lately?
