I Changed My Mind

They say it's a woman's prerogative,  to change her mind. And I did! Take a look at my latest move. 

I shared with you here that I got a new rug from Rug Studio using a coupon they gave me. I had it in the entry when it first arrived. But then I started thinking. Thinking usually causes me to put my back and muscles into action. ha!

I rolled up the rug and took it to the great room. I was wanting to lighten up the things in here and thought that this taupe flatweave might do the trick. 

The leather sofa and wood floors were making our great room dark. Normally in a room for tv watching that would be a great thing. However, I get tired of dark and gloomy!

I put the rug in front of the sofa to try to give my oddly arranged room more symmetry. I have one wall that lets me arrange things in a symmetrical fashion! Just one wall in this huge room. 

I really like the taupe with the wicker chest and brown leather! The pillows on the sofa are also a taupe/beige/greige. 

I took the new rug as an opportunity to create a vignette on the wicker. I went around the house grabbing an arm full of accessories to play with. 

I think this rug will be a nice change, especially during the warmer months, from the dark wool oriental that covered 3/4 of the floor. 

Some of hubby's history prints have some taupe and brown also. I like to see colors repeated in a room.

Yes, I changed my mind. I may do it again very soon too.  And who knows where I will move this rug next? ha.  :-)

Thanks for visiting!
