I have been searching for the idea rug for my upstairs landing for the past month. Had found one on Overstock.com but after a few days I realized that it was more suited for my guest room.
I found this Oriental Rug at a lovely Oriental Rug store in my town. I have passed by this store thousands of times but have never entered in. The minute I walked in I fell in love with this round beautiful rug. I hadn't considered using a round rug and had always thought of a rectangular but I really think that it actually made the floor more noticeable and at the same time brought out the honey tones of my table and floor.
I wanted fringes and these were the perfect touch. I don't love busy rugs with tons of colors and patterns but I thought this one had just the right amount of muted and soft colors and designs not to over power the cream hues.
Now my friend Michelle is a very bad influence. She took me on a trip today to a store I had never gone before called Farmhouse. I was smitten. While I was there I found the perfect chest. The owner told me it was made by Amish builders he works with. Now I have a soft spot for Amish and anything Amish made. So guess what I bought today?
I love how again the pine brought out the colors in my floor and in the Ethan Allen Bombe dresser.
I really loved my chest. Now I just hope my husband will too.
