Here's how it looked yesterday. I know the rug is not scaled properly, and even though it's pretty something about it bugs me. Maybe it's because I can't keep it straight. Maybe it's the fact that I hate carpet.
I'd love to have a new sofa - the Rue Petal Sofa from CB2 to be exact - but it's just not in the budget. I wanted my sofa to be more padded and comfy, so I bought a memory foam pad and put it under the cover. Big deal, I know, but I'm not very good at DIY, so this is an accomplishment for me! And it is really comfy. Almost too comfy. If I lay down to watch a movie, I'm asleep in five minutes!
Here's the living room without the rug. I like it better. Looks a little cleaner. I'm not much of a pattern person.
I decided to use the rug in my bedroom, which is such a luxury! It's so comfy on my feet when I get out of bed. Here's a secret: I hate making my bed so this is how I do it. I have pretty bedding and pillows and I just throw them on. Good thing I embrace imperfection. I love the low scale of my bed.
