I normally don’t post on Saturdays, but it took me a couple extra days to finish some projects and I wanted to get in at least 1 post before the end of the week, so here we are!
This week I’ve been busy with several projects which I will be showing you all shortly, but I wanted to show you what REALLY has made me so excited this week:
My new living room rug from Rugs USA!!!
I chose the Tuscan Terali Moroccan Trellis Ivory Rug in Ivory.
As you may recall from this post, I had an old, ugly hand-me-down rug in here before. It was an old shag that had matted down over the years. It was also too small for our room.
Then, in last week’s post I showed how to choose the perfect rug using photoshop and narrowed it down…
It felt like Christmas came early when it arrived last Tuesday! I rolled it out immediately and LOVED how soft it felt.
One of the main reasons I chose this rug (besides the awesome pattern and color), was because it was made from wool. Wool is very durable and is very plush-feeling.
The ivory moroccan shapes are looped wool and the navy parts are cut wool, and the texture not only feels nice, but looks beautiful! It is SO amazing how much a good rug can transform a space!
I love being in this room now!
I worked hard to finish those bookshelves in the back, this week, and I’ll show more of that in a later post, but I felt I couldn’t take pictures of the room, until they were built, painted, and styled. There is still several more things we want to do to this back wall, but I’m loving how this room is coming together.
I even added a few Christmas touches! Much more coming, since I have a Christmas Tour coming up in a couple weeks!
Here is the before/after, just to show you the improvement a rug makes! (p.s. also what a difference Adobe Lightroom makes! Holy yellow on the left!)
A huge THANK YOU to Rugs USA for providing this rug to me!
My family owned a carpet and rug cleaning business for 20 years and after being inside thousands of homes, speaking with customers, and seeing all type of rugs out there, I can tell you from experience, this is a VERY HIGH quality rug that will last years, as long as I take care of it. As with all wool rugs, it sheds for a couple weeks, and vacuuming daily helps control the amount of shedding. There are NO weird smells and it is NOT starchy. This rug is everything I expected it to be and more!
I know you will love them too and the good news is, they are having a big Black Friday Sale right now–Up to 75% off so many beautiful rugs plus FREE SHIPPING! So go peruse and tell me what you find! I’d love to see if my Photoshop tips help any of you pick out the perfect rug for your room!
