“I Want That Wednesdays” are a series of posts that, well frankly, are just of things (decor, fashion, food, etc.) I like. Egotistical, right? I’m hoping in time it’ll help me define my personal tastes. Let me know if you love it/hate it/can’t get enough of it.
Every day I go back and forth on whether or not I like the oriental rug in my living room. I know it’s a high-quality, vintage piece—and actually it hides dust and dirt very well—but something about it just isn’t right to me. Maybe it’s too dark for the space?
Anyway, you know I swapped out the oriental rug for the yellow striped one in the bedroom at one point. It looked ok, but the dhurrie quality (not very plush) and light coloring (showed every single cat hair!) did nothing for me. And I actually missed it in the bedroom more than I thought I would.
So it’s still a work in progress. Such is life. Maybe I layer a light sisal rug underneath it? Or I’d love to give this rug a go:
It’s almost a hint at nautical without the sailboats or anchors, so of course I love it. It’s colors are light, but not so much that you worry about any little thing getting on it. I’m partial to this color combo, but if you’re curious, it also comes in berry/purple and lime/emerald.
