Thank you for the congrats on selling our house…there’s no doubt luck was on our side with this one! As cliche as it is, from the very beginning we’ve had the sense that this whole move was meant to be. Too many times I’ve let desires cloud my judgement, and ended up trying to shove a square peg in a round hole…it feels good to know the peg was round this time.
But there’s no packing going on yet…first up is the big photo shoot happening next week!! Not only have we been prepping our house for listing (see my tips here), but at the same time we were scrambling to complete the room makeovers for the magazines. I’ve got a lot to show you in the coming weeks…projects and updates for both houses, so it will be a little ADD around here!
Ever since painting the Dining Room pink and red, the gray rug no longer seemed to work in the space. But I wasn’t going to ditch a perfectly good rug just because it looked so-so in the room. But as luck would have it, the Family Room needed a rug, and the gray one from the Dining Room worked perfectly (I’ll show you soon)! Musical rugs saves the day. And oh darn, that left the Dining Room without a rug!
I went straight to my favorite rug source…Rugs USA…and started sorting through the options. I couldn’t decide if I wanted something to balance out the ceiling, coordinate with the walls, or tie in with the drapes. Fortunately I have an uber-talented friend, and she whipped together mock-ups showing my top five rug choices. Everyone should have an uber-talented friend, because as soon as she texted me these screen shots, I knew the clear winner. And it wasn’t my top choice originally!
So which rug do you choose for the room? And which rug do you think I chose?
