Personal Touches

Plant: Button Fern (a gift from mom). Coffee table: West Elm. Sofa: Bernhardt. Rug: Amazon (made in Turkey). Pillows: HomeGoods and World Market.

I know what you're thinking. And yes, of course you already knew that I was going to purchase a vibrant rug after spending hours online this past weekend browsing through all of those lovely pieces on Veronica's site (view previous post). Not just for that reason, but I knew eventually I would want another rug in that space. Seeing all of those beautiful patterns just basically pushed me over the edge. It happens sometimes. 

This colorful beauty arrived today, and I think she might be a keeper. I actually purchased a smaller rug for my bedroom in a different pattern and more of a runner style, but I'm not completely sold on it. I may end up returning it, specifically because I think it would look better in a slightly larger size.

Pictured: My bird of paradise plant. I'm told that the leaves do split over time. Other than that, she's still hanging in there. 

I rummaged through my front closet to find the one solid colored turquoise pillow I own, and decided to throw it on my sofa since the new rug has the same shade of blue. It's nice to be able to shop from your own little stash. I think this rug gives my living room a completely fresh look and feel, and adds that extra layer of cozy! 

While I'm on the subject of rugs (still, I know), I found yet another seller with some amazing rugs, and the prices really aren't that bad. Check them out, and fall in love! 

Update: I moved the smaller rug into the kitchen, and I think we're on to something. I might just hold on to it after all.
