Our main floor was decorated in French Country reds and yellows for the first decade that we lived in our house. A little more than two years ago I made some dramatic changes to the color scheme and went to the blues and neutrals that you see now.
For several years I had a beautiful rug in our family room that I purchased through QVC. It's a Royal Palace 100% wool rug that measures 9x12. When I changed our decor, I thought about selling it but just couldn't bring myself to do it.
I had purchased a jute rug at World Market for our living room that I really liked - until I realized that it was shedding. Badly. In fact, it was like the rug was made out of dirt. Every time I looked, our hardwood floors were covered with a layer of silt with little black dots in it. It traveled out from under the rug and was spreading around the room, making it impossible to keep the floors clean. And I was getting concerned that it was going to ruin the shine of the floors.
I had tried my wool rug in here before and I didn't like it but I had my furniture slip covered in a very bright white at the time. It suddenly dawned on me the other day that now that the furniture was a more neutral shade, the rug might work!
Our Family Room
In its defense, it looks pretty nice in here. And I wanted a new rug for this room.
