You may remember this post? Where I wrote about a jute rug that I had gotten at Target? Well, don't worry, I came to my senses and saw how blah it was in my living room and took it back. It doesn't matter how inexpensive something is if it doesn't work in the space. I knew that I needed something that would contrast against the dark floors but not be too light. I also wanted something that had texture and an interesting pattern without being too distracting or that would dictate the color scheme of the room. It couldn't break the bank either.
I've been waiting patiently, for months now, for the rug that I wanted at West Elm to go on sale. It finally went on sale for 20% off. Plus, I still had about a $100.00 credit from when I bought my couches that I could use to put towards the rug. Honestly though, I hesitated when I ordered it, because I had intended to order a swatch so that I could see whether or not it was going to be soft and if the colors were right. But, I never ordered the swatch.
One of the things that bugged me about our current rug was that it wasn't a full 8 x 10. I don't remember exactly how big it is, but it was maybe 7.5 x 9 or something like that and so it didn't go under the bigger couch. I liked that it was wool, but I felt locked into the color scheme and the floral was a bit girly, which is fine, but I think our white couches are feminine too, so there was a little too much girly girl going on.
Anyway, enough of the blah, blah, blah......
