Happy Friday. Are you glad it's finally Friday? I'm just happy that it has been such a pretty week here in GA. It's been in the high 70's and sunny all week. I've even started wearing shorts again!
I recently decided to get another rug for the family room. It has been years since I pulled up the seagrass rug that stuck to my floor. Oh what a disaster that was. The latex backing adhered to my floor and almost ruined it. So, after scrubbing and cleaning it for hours, I was a little gun shy of putting another rug down. But, now that I know how to prevent that from happening, I was ready to try again. This time, I made sure to use a high quality rug pad from Rug Pad USA. It is made from rubber and won't ruin my floor over time. I chose a wool tufted rug that is soft on our feet. It came from Overstock.com.
It's a grey color with ivory lattice design. I ordered a large size to fill the space (6x9).
You may also notice that I moved the yellow out of here. It moved upstairs to my master bedroom and bathroom. I've chosen to remain neutral in here with white, grey and black.
I also brought in a lot of mercury glass. I used a trio on my coffee table and in my glass cabinet.
By adding some pops of black in my mostly grey and white room, I've achieved a serene space. I'm also enjoying the contrast of modern design with the geometric pillow fabrics and the rustic vintage books and wood accents.
I've made some more subtle changes in my kitchen, half bath and foyer which I'll share soon.
I hope that you have a fun weekend planned. I'm planning on working outside a little bit since my husband has the weekend off (finally)! We may clean up our woods or put out fresh pinestraw.
Thanks for stopping by.
