My New Rug!

I've been looking on the internet for a new rug for my family room. I couldn't find anything here locally but this super expensive place that sells their rugs for thousands!!!!!  It's not an easy task relying on your monitor.  After searching for weeks I finally found something I thought would be perfect for my new furniture.  I needed something bigger and a totally different color from what I had. I'm not used to having red... this is really a new adventure for me. My other rug was so small I couldn't put the sofa on it so all it did was slide around.  It was driving me crazy! So here we go let me know what you think.  :)
Old Rug
New Rug

I'm not quite done with this room!  I have valances ordered in a companion fabric to the chair, a foot stool and a few more pillows.  You can never have too many pillows!  Then I'll be done!  :)

  1. Good Morning Denise :) WOW, I love your new rug! It really makes your sofa stand out whereas with the other rug, it just sorta blend in. And it really helps to showcase your chair and pillows, and other the other red accents you have in the room. Can't wait to see more photos when you have the valances up and pillows too:)

    You have a great eye for decorating Denise!!

    Have a lovely day, warmest always, Brenda

  3. Thanks Ladies, I thought the same thing. You know that old chain reaction thing? One thing leads to another! lol It started with getting a new sofa and recovering my chair. Well I couldn't stop there could I? It all has to connect together! Boy laying that rug out yesterday was a job to do by myself! This old body is feeling it today! I'll be glad to get rid of my valances from Lowes. lol They have served their purpose! But thank heavens I won't have to hang the new ones! I hung those by myself and can still remember what that was like! :)

  6. Hi Denise!
    I think the old rug was great! But the new one you picked out is . . . GREATER HA!!
    And will protect your gorgeous hardwood floors too.
    What do you think of larger pillows in the check fabric from the table - placed on either end and the center corner of the sofa. The little bit of creamy in it will make everything pop and would look super mixed with the pillows you have there now!
    You talented designer you :-)))
    your bud,
    Lynn

  8. Denise,

    I think you made a perfect choice! It fits the room better as far as the size goes and i adore the colors in it.

    It makes your chair and the pillows on your sofa just pop!! I am a lover of deep rich color!!

    Great job!

    Debbie
