Our wool rugs have returned from their repair and cleaning...and are ready to take up residence in the house. (The red rug at the entry also went for a bath...and it is soft and fluffy too. It was at the entry of our Georgian house too.)
After so much moving and rearranging...I have my dining room ready to show you...stage by stage.
Here is the black wool rug. It is soft and fluffy after its bath! I gave it the barefoot test. ha!
Notice that there is hardwood flooring showing around the room. That is the proper way. I have read rules about how much floor to show...but that rule, I threw out the window. This is the room, and the rug is the size it is! ha!
If one were having a rug custom made...then, look up the rules for rug sizes.
I was not able to center my rug right to left in this pic because I did not want the front of the china cabinet sitting on the rug. It was just too much trouble to move.
Lengthwise, the middle of the rug, table, and china cabinet are all centered on the chandelier.
My black rug has many colors...and that is helpful for finding matching colors. The rug has a natural border, with green, rust, tan, gold, and little bits of blue. Just perfect for my house. I bought the rug several years ago...but I was using the same colors.
I picked out the grid fabric this summer to go with this rug and other colors in the house. That way I can move the chairs around...and they still go with the room.
I love the dining room so much better now that I have the old rug in place. It is interesting how one change can affect the feeling of a room.
Ah...it feels so good to be done.
(oops...I noticed in this pic that I have not put my blue and white plates on top of the highboy. oops. By the time you read this I will probably have them back up there. ha!)
Thanks for Visiting...
