You know how when you make one change, it leads to another change, and then another change and then so on and so on until your kind and patient husband finally inquires "When will it ever stop?"
Truth be told, honey, NEVER!!! And how about we call them improvements, rather than changes.
Okay, good, works for me too.
I mentioned back in this post that I thought my dining area needed a rug.
Well, I found one, in the family room.
It really does ground the space nicely and it seems more inviting to me.
I also had a change of heart about this rug that was in our foyer.
I love the rug, but it was clearly not meant for a foyer in a house with three kids.
Deep down I knew it when I bought it, but I was really hoping it would work out.
When you have to politely ask people to walk around the rug, not on it,
you know it's time to make a change, I mean improvement.
This was my temporary improvement. I found it at Homegoods and I thought it would be perfectly.
Most importantly, it's the color of dirt, it is durable and it has a fun stripes in it.
I lived with it for a month or so and then one day I decided it would look better on the back porch.
So off it went.
Now my foyer is rug free, as is my family room. I can live without a rug in the foyer for a while, but I need to get on my family room rug search pronto. It's just not cozy at all in that room without a rug.
Here are a few I am eyeing:
I love this neutral chevron rug from West Elm....
I am also digging this sweater rug from West Elm....
Although with the couch being brown, this one might be a tad dark.
I also think the Pottery Barn Chunky Wool and Natural Jute rug would be a good option.
Let me sum it up for you, as my husband summed it up for me - now we need two rugs, one for the foyer and one for the family room. My reply - yes, but now we don't need one for the dining area or the back porch. Don't you like how I take the "glass half full" approach!
How about you, making any
changes improvements in your home?
