This week on the One Room Challenge ...
and the rest of us that she brought together are busy wrapping things up in our Room. We are putting on the finishing touches. If you need to catch up ... go
and you can start from the beginning!
I'll give you a look at our chair ... it makes me swoon.
Let's talk a little about rugs ... you can see a peak of the West Elm rug under our chair.
s I try to live by:
Rugs should be as big as you possibly can take them. If you can, take the rug out as far as possible in the room, leaving approximately 12" of floor exposed around the perimeter of the room.
Geometrics can actually be neutrals ... here are a few of my favorite inspirations:
Layering Rugs creates depth and warmth ... do it if you dare!
We chose the
for texture and look ... remember our first week we discussed that this young family needs something to hold up to a new puppy and three energetic little girls. We couldn't find an "off the rack" rug that we like enough to fit the space ... so chose this one because we like it and it "holds" the seating arrangement just fine. Then in a few years when they are ready to make the longterm rug investment they can follow my rules!
Looking forward to the big reveal next week!! Remember we had an issue with the brackets needed to hang the window treatments on the large windows. Custom brackets are coming today and we are scheduled for install on Thursday ... I am checking my mudroom by the hour to make certain they get delivered in time!!
Next week is the Challenge Finale! A few things to take care of before you see the whole picture ... it is down to the wire!
Please drop by my other Challenge partners and see what is happening in their rooms!
