Rugs are one of the things that gets moved around the most in our house. I just can’t decide which ones should go where. The rug that has stumped me the most is a large floral Aubusson type of rug that my parents gave us in their “Great Downsizing of 2010.” It looks a lot like this one in color and pattern:
(This is Kate and Andy Spade’s apartment which I love to pieces but had refrained from posting because it’s been all over the blogosphere.)
So my rug has been in the living room, the dining room, back in the living room, the bedroom and is now in the dining room again. I’m just not feeling it in there mainly because it’s pretty traditional and the dining room furniture (also received as part of the Great Downsizing) is also very traditional.
Looking at this room makes me think maybe I should try it again in the living room which is mostly gray, white, cream and black. Of course I can’t remember what I didn’t like about it there when it was there the previous two times(!) How bad is that? Please tell me I’m not the only who’s moved something around so much that they’ve lost track!
I’d like to say a big thank you to those who voted for FTRB in the 2011 Homies! If you’d like to add your vote for FTRB or any other home blogs, you can do so here. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!
[Addendum: It seems Apartment Therapy has changed how they are taking votes this year and it’s confused some people. So . . . if you’d like to vote for FTRB (and I hope you do!), here’s what you do:
1.Â Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the comments – it’s really long – until you get to the comment box. (You do have to register or sign in with your AT user info. It’s really simple to register if you haven’t before.)
2. Then just type in the following:
Name: From the Right Bank
Thanks for your votes and sorry for the shameless plug(!)
