Family Room Reveal - Making What You Have Work

HOME DECOR 03.31.16
Decorating after a move into a new home can really be a challenge. What worked in your last home, does not always work as well in your new home. This is what happened to us.

We have a big wool traditional style rug that we love and it looked great in our last home with dark wood floors. Put that same rug with lighter wood floors and it looks very different.

Determined to make it work I pulled the colors from the rug (black, ivory, red and green) and used them throughout the room. I love lots of texture and shine in a room so I also added several baskets, silver accessories, weathered pieces, burlap and linen.

Hope you will stop by my blog for the full tour, lots of pictures to share.

    I love how all your furniture is arranged. It all flows so well and is so inviting! I'm having the hardest time figuring out how to arrange things in my awkward space of a living room. I'd love to pick your brain some time if you don't mind.

    In love with this room!!! You have such a good eye for mixing texture and color. I saw you changed the room since this posting which is also very awesome. I must know where you purchased the burgandy rug from. I must have it for my living room!! :)
