Pulling The Trigger.

Thursday, August 13, 2009

As I have mentioned before I am a bit of a coward when it comes to interior design. It's not that I don't know what I like, it's just that I don't want to make the wrong choice. Especially with the big ticket items. We have lived in our home for over a year now, and the truth is that it looks exactly like it did the day we moved in. I finally have gotten up the courage to pick out a lighting fixture which I think will look really good in our space, without taking over the room. 



The thing is I am still at a loss for what type of rug to put in a room. Well, not so much at a loss, but more so I just keep hesitating to get the rug I really want. I love our Thomas Paul pillows that are on the sofa, in fact they are probably my favorite thing that I have in our home. So that got me to thinking, why not get the matching rug



Of course it only comes in brown (which we already have way too much of) and light blue. Light blue with little kids. Little kids who are allowed to eat and drink in the living room? I can't think that this is the greatest idea, but it really this is just what we need to pull our room together. Oh, I am just such a wimp. I think it is time to pull the decorating trigger. I love the rug, love the color, and I think it will look amazing with our new modern white chandelier/ light fixture




I think I just made the decision for myself, I've been lusting for this for over a year. What exactly am I waiting for?  Besides isn't this why God invented OxyClean?

It'll look really good with the other colours in the room. Be brave....order it!

Do you live in your house? It is so clean and uncluttered (with kid things) nice.

Hehe oh yes Jodi we live here! You will notice that the picture is taken so you can't see the corner. Over there is a 5x5 foam mat covered in every toy you can imagine. Not to be outdone, for the LM's 2nd birthday my father has bought him a 4x4 train table for all his trains...which is goingto have to find it's way into the living room somehow! I just try to keep it all in one space! Sometimes that is way easier said than done!!
