Rug Dilemma

12 Apr

Well I had a lovely weekend! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and so much fun!

Sorry for the major absence I’ve been defintely recovering from a long party weekend and needed a break from decorating.

The good news is on Thursday when I was in Carmel, my rug from Overstock came. The bad news is I think its too small with the new living room layout.

I think the 7’6 x 9’6 size would have been better and now its sold out! Argh!! I hate that. I’ve been checking Overstock pretty much every hour to see if it comes back in stock. So wish me luck!

The other rug I ordered came today too so I took pictures of both, so you could help me pick one. They are both 5×8 which I think is too small for the area. Unfortunately the Fallon rugs next size up is 8×11 and that is definitely way too big.

Here’s the Mod Alexa rug I bought off Overstock

It’s kind of hard to tell from pictures but its actually a really pretty dark gray.

Here’s a nice view of the living room from the kitchen, so you can get an idea of the rug size.

Ok and here’s the Fallon rug form Surya

So which one is your fave?

I didn’t think I’d like the Fallon so much after I got the one from Overstock, but I actually think it compliments the room so much better! And it’s definitely the “safe” option, but maybe I need to branch out and keep the bold rug from Overstock! Decisions…decisions…

    i think the lighter one flows with the room better. you can always add some boldness with bright colours in your frame.
    ps – i love your couch and choice of pillows on it!🙂

    I reallyyy love the dark one… I feel like the light one just blends in too much… but on the other hand the dark one really stands out. But.. my pick is the dark one. PLUS… stains won’t show as much from the little boogers and the new babies that better be coming soon!!!!!

    They are both good, so you’ll make the right choice either way. 🙂 Personally, I like the bolder one, but that’s my personal style. The other is nice for a lighter airier feel.

    I just bought the bolder/darker one from Overstock in the larger size so I may have contributed to it selling out. So sorry! There were only 2 left when I bought mine. I love it! The other one I will say, however, looks just as nice in your room.
