Happy Monday. I got a call from the 80’s last week, and they wanted their rugs back. Sadly, I rolled them up and obliged, but first I made two awesome purchases.
We folded and bought two seagrass rugs for our great room. This one you see is in the dining part of the room, obviously.
And this one is in the seating part of the room. I know there is a lot of neutral going on, but there are also a lot of textures. I am fine with it since that’s the taste faze I am in right now.
If my elementary teachers had asked me what my favorite crayon color was, my answer never would have been beige. No way. I love any blue, but in our home I like those blues with yellows, reds, and greens.
With colorful pillows, that can be switched out seasonally, colorful art, flowers, lamps, and accessories, I can have it all. Just last week I wrote about adding color with accessories to our kitchen hutch. You can read about that here.
The original Persian rugs were definitely investment purchases that we bought from a dealer in NYC when we first moved to Lexington years ago. We have them in the basement storage area right now with plans to move them to our bedrooms in the fall. We’re thinking it might be nice to step on the rugs rather than the hardwoods when we get up each morning.
