My living room is constantly undergoing changes. For the longest time, I would buy "temporary items" that fit my needs at the time. I've been slowly putting together pieces that I love and will last, little by little. I'm dying to get rid of my couch, but I haven't found the perfect one to replace it with. I also have grown tired of the jute rug, which has served us well...but I was dying for something lighter and softer. Here's what the living room looked before several changes:
When I saw that Rugs USA was having a sale a few weeks ago, I pounced on the Marrakesh Shag (which is currently on sale again, but not as cheap as a few weeks ago...it pays to wait!).
It's 100% wool, which is prone to shedding, but so far we've had no problems. It's so soft!
I also can't wait to reupholster those chairs. I'm thinking of attempting it myself...
I wasn't sure how I felt about the braided fringe at first, but after living with it for a week, I'm in love!
You may also be asking yourself where the crazy awesome coffee table is. Well, long story short...I sold it.
When I first saw it and asked my parents to snag it for me at an auction, I wasn't sure if I was going to keep or sell it. I knew they were worth a lot of money, but I also loved it. So when my dad brought it over and H and I cleaned it up, I was in love. There was no way it was leaving my sight. So so gorgeous/ quirky/ awesome. But after living with it for a while and after constantly stubbing my toe on the brass rams head, I reluctantly had to admit that it was too large and she had to go. So I'm in the market for a new one, but I'm going to be very picky! I really want something with a marble top. Hopefully I'll find something soon!
