With this rental house being so small, I get tired of the same-old same-old as far as decor. I decided to liven things up a bit over the next several months until we get into our new house. I figured I would get a few new home decor pieces here and there, and maybe walk into our new house looking fresh. So, I started with a few new rugs for here in the living room. These rugs are from Boutique Rugs and I FREAKING LOVE THEM!
My old rugs had warm tones, which I still love. But like I said, I wanted something exciting and new. Wait… isn’t that a song? ???? ???? Love….. Exciting and New…. Come aboard…. we’re expecting you…… Name that tune! ???? I decided to go a totally different route. These two are a mixture of cream and charcoal and that’s it. I am not a matchy-match type of person. So I wanted to keep them in the same color family since they are in the same room. I get asked that question all of the time. Do rugs have to match if they are in the same room? Well, I have never matched my rugs. As long as they are in the same color category, they will work. But remember.. I’m no expert. I do what I like.
I showed you the Christmas decor on this side of the living room at the rental a few days ago. Nothing has changed much except the rug. I loved this Warroad Area Rug because of the pattern and the soft colors. You know me with too much pattern and too many colors. For some reason, I go berserk after a few months, if that long. ???? With the Warroad being smaller, I can handle a busier pattern.
The Burdette Area Rug was the perfect choice for over by the couch. It feels the same way to me… with the light colors, it makes the room feel so much bigger. This rug is a 8×10 so I kept the pattern a little calmer and not too crazy. And I love it!
Speaking of crazy…. Did you notice I already got rid of the original beige curtains I hung in the rental a few months back? ???? While I loved them, I was missed my plain boring white. ???? These white curtains made this room so much brighter. And I need bright rooms here in Indiana due to the lack of sun all Winter.
Boutique Rugs have SO MANY different choices. They shipped my rugs out right away and they arrived safely. I have my eyes on a few different ones, but in the same color family. I will keep you posted on those… because I know I will be switching out a few more. You will have to check them out.
