A month or so ago, my parents bought a rug at an estate sale. Mom felt that it would work with the motif of our open kitchen/living area (neutral with maroon accents) so she and Dad stopped by with it on Sunday afternoon.
Since we’re not exactly interior design-heavy around these parts, It thought I would do a before and after.
So. The before.
Totally fine, but not exactly packed with visual interest. Of course, a major part of this project was removing all of the furniture from the living room and sweeping like crazy. Dust bunny fossilization was 100% NOT one of our aims of the project.
And of course, the after.
It’s much cozier, right? I think the fact that we’ve made it five years in this home without a rug probably speaks to the fact that I do not have strong opinions about them. With that in mind, New Rug is so soft and fluffy and 100% nicer than walking on wood floors.
