What Do You Think?
Yesterday I had to take Cole to the pediatrician to get a booster shot and when I got home, my new rug from Overstock was sitting on my front porch. People, I ordered it on Monday. That's two days! And it's the Holidays! Can you believe it? Well, I was just too excited for words and when baby went down for his nap I opened her right up. I couldn't even wait for help moving the heavy furniture and I'm not quite sure how I managed to do it myself. Adrenaline I guess.
And while I love the subdued colors and how they look in this room, I'm just not happy with the size. And like I've mentioned before, size does matter!
The colors are chocolate brown and chateau green. The walls in this room are a creamy pale yellow.
I think it adds just enough color without being overpowering.
It will take a few days for it to straighten out from being rolled up I guess.
I really do love it. Problem is, it doesn't come in a bigger size.
I was going to just keep it, but I'm tired of settling. Why should I? I found another one that I love with the same colors and it's the perfect size so I went ahead and ordered it. And I was going to return this one, but I think I will use it in the Living Room which is just across the hall from the Dining Room.
The rug I have in there now is blue, and while it works, there really isn't any other blue in that room. I got in from Craig for only $40 and I can easily resell it for that. I think the rug from the Dining Room will work better with the colors in this room and will add better flow from room to room.
So what do you think? I'd really like to hear your thoughts. And honey, if you're reading this, I've been very patient not having a rug in my Dining Room for over a year. And I was a good consumer, taking advantage of the Holiday sales. So don't hate me for splurging ;)
