I ordered new rugs. We’ve been busy chatting about ways to Get Organized (here). I thought it was about time I update you on my house — interested in seeing a few pics and hearing the latest scoop?! Most of the rooms are now painted! Yay!!! I couldn’t be happier with the color! It feels like a brand new house! And even better than that, it feels like my house! You may remember this bench from my rancher. It was a Home Goods find that I couldn’t pass without buying!
The height of our entry swallows this cute bench up, so I’ve begun the hunt of finding a new home for it (I think there has to be a better wall for it to chill on in my house). I’m also on the lookout for a chest and mirror for this wall.
My house has two entry closets. One by the front door and one by the garage door. I considered adding shelves to this one because lack of storage has caused some of my dining room dishes to be stored in my Master Closet. As much as I love storage closets, I’ve resisted because I do think coat closets are important. Patience isn’t my thing, but eventually we will rework our kitchen and at that point I think I will have more storage for my serving pieces. (I’ve already drawn out my new kitchen plans — now we just have to save up for it).
I’ve shown you our formal living already. I love it, but the blue is a little too blue for me now. I tend to be that way about color. I love it in every other home, but in my own I’m most comfortable with neutrals. Neutrals with a few little pops of color.
Here’s the new rug I’ve ordered for my living room — Pottery Barn’s Scroll Tile Rug in gray. The good news, I had a new Homeowner Coupon AND the rug is on sale. The bad news, it’s been on backorder for awhile. Crossing my fingers for sooner than later!
Isn’t is so pretty!!!
And with my white couch I think it’ll be PERFECT!
I was able to buy it in a smaller size to test it out before placing the order. LOVE! It’ll look even better in the 9×12 size!
In the Family Room, I’ve tried a couple rugs, too.
I love the quality of Pottery Barn rugs and since it’s not something I plan on replacing for many years, I’m willing to splurge. I’m so thankful for my coupon and the current sale!
I tried the Pottery Barn Bird Medallion Rug in gray, but it seemed a little too busy for me.
And the pattern running only one direction didn’t work for this room.
I finally decided on Pottery Barn’s Mason Boucle Jute Rug in a linen color, I just looked online and the 9×12 doesn’t seem to be offered anymore, but I’ve been promised that mine is on the way. I’ll show you as soon as it’s in and doing it’s job of making my family room seem more cozy!!! What’s next? This room needs a new TV storage solution desperately! I fell in love with one at a furniture store the other day, but it was too large. I’m trying to convince Stud that he should scale it down and build it…verdict is still out on whether or not I’m going to have to come up with a new dream piece for this wall!?!
