The Rug Reveal

I don't hate it - WHEW!  After 20 years with the same rug it was quite a challenge to commit and select a new one, not to mention finding one in the right size.  My rooms are very small and I could not fit anything larger than 8'x10' but couldn't go much smaller, either, or it would "float".   I have to keep walking over it until I get my feet "filled up" with how plush it is.  I almost bought a cushioned pad to go under it, instead of the gripping pad, but I am glad I didn't as it has plenty of loft on it's own and any more might have been a tripping hazard.
This is the before shot so you can see it is a drastic change from very traditional to something more modern.  That isn't my normal M.O. but it was good to shake things up once in a while and I am happy with the result.
Now I have to go walk on it some more.  Maybe I will lay down....  8+)

Wow, what a difference. The old rug is really beautiful, but the new one is bold and fresh. I like it a lot and I'm so glad you like it too.

The new rug is just awesome!! Love it. I can see how that is a big change but aren't you so happy that you dove in and made the commitment? Change can bring about new awareness. Plus you get the bonus of comfy feet.
