Choosing the right rug for your space.

I have been searching for the perfect rug for a while and I finally found it.

living room


I have a long, rectangular – shaped living room. My fireplace is on one end and a stunning white bookshelf on the other. It has  always been a challenge for me to style this room. This is also, the main room of our house, the focal point and I want it to always look styled and edited.

Its been slow progress to remodel this space; mostly because I am so picky and looking for specific color combinations, patterns and textiles.  I have two kids and a dog, so I am also looking for durability and decor that will outlast their messiness. A couple of months ago,  I found these really cute dark teal throw pillows  for my living room space.  A couple of days later, while shopping at Homegoods, I found this Magnolia Home accent chair that matched the throw pillows perfectly.  We knew they belonged together and brought it home. I was so happy to have found a spectacular piece for our living room space.

To see how  it all started check out that post  here.

I have been adding other details to the living room. My next goal is to find a huge art piece for the wall behind the sofa, a couple of frames on the wall behind the bar cart.  I need to give a little update to our coffee table. Check out this post, I write all about this gold coffee table and how I transformed it. The before and after are pretty amazing.

Styling the coffee table is my next project. I want large oversized books, an interesting piece of art and one of a kind flower pot. Cant wait to share with you how that turnes out.

    We don’t have any rugs because of the kids and cat but as they all get older we will be looking for area rugs. This one is really nice. I like the colors.

    I need a new rug for my living room soon. It’s beautiful and a family heirloom, but it slides even with the pad underneath because it’s too small for the space. The rug selection in the picture above is perfect.

    I love rugs! They’re simple but they really add spice to any interior. It’s just that there’s so much designs in the market that it gets overwhelming! Whew.

    I recently added a mirror, coffee table and rug to our living room and it made such a huge difference! Love your idea of adding pillows as well, that is next!

    I love rugs for adding accents to rooms, but my hubby and I are so picky with what we like. We have a contemporary/modern style and like burgundy and mocha colors, but not anything with circular patterns. It is so tough to find this! haha. Your room looks great and your new rug fits the room well!

    I love how airy your living space is. The coffee table looks similar to the one I wanted to get at home goods, but I felt it would be too high maintenance with a one year old at the time. Lovely pieces!

    I love these ideas. We just bought some new furniture and now we are looking at rugs to add.

    You really did find the perfect rug. It’s gorgeous! I love the shade of blue, and it looks so soft! A good rug can really warm and transform a space.

    I actually need a new rug for my room and this is really a great guide on choosing the right one.

    Good tips. Our living room would feel so bare without our much love yellow and grey rug.

    I always just place my rug in the center and never gave it much thought. I love how you showed that a difference can change everything
