A Rug for the Living Room

I finally found a rug I love.  The living room has been living without a rug for quite a while now.  I was kept trying to convince myself it didn't need one because the room isn't used often.  But every time I looked over, it just looked incomplete.  It was lacking an extra detail.

 

Target has been having some crazy sales lately and I caught the Veteran's Day sale where all rugs were on sale with an additional 10% off.  I scrolled through and this one caught my eye.  It was gray and had a unique geometric pattern.  The great thing about Target is if I'm not satisfied with my online purchase, I can return it to the store.


I knew when it arrived it was perfect.  The size is 7x10 which is perfect for this room.  All the furniture fits on nicely.  The pattern isn't too busy or large and doesn't compete with the others in the room.






Now this room feels more complete.  The rug anchors the furniture and brings it all together.

Holiday Gift Guides

It's that time...time for holiday shopping that is.  Thanksgiving is next week.  After that, it's full speed ahead.  I know I can be a hard person to shop for.  I never really know what I want, especially if you want me to make a list.

I've come up with a guide for women like me who like nice things but can't always think of it at the moment.  I'm more of a see it, want it kind of girl.  All these are under $50.

 

bracelet
knit scarf 
faux leather tote
rain boots
nail polish
watch 
  quilted vest
necklace
  
Alright, I gave you the her version of the gift guide, so here is the him version.

My husband isn't too hard to shop for.  I've figured out what he likes over the years.  He tends to be more specific on his list.  Here are a few things your guy might like.


mock neck sweater
slippers 
 flannel scarf
sleep pants

 skincare kit
 watch
 headphones 

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet or are you a last minute shopper?

Going On a Chair Hunt

I have been helping my mom revamp her living room.  She has decided on a new color palette of gray and red with a touch of black and white.  I love the new direction she's going in.  One of the things she needed in her space was an accent chair.  We searched many stores looking for the right one.  One thing I noticed that kept coming up in the search was black and white.  It offered great contrast to the gray sofa she bought and brought in some extra pattern.

Here are some options we considered.  Notice that a couple of them are chevron.  I was very surprised because I didn't think she would like this pattern for herself.





She ended up going with the last chair.  She loved the diamond pattern and updated wingback look.

The space is looking great already.  I'll show you the plan later.
