Because the blue patterns weren’t working for me I went to Restoration and Pottery Barn and pulled some neutral patterns that might work.
Because I was worried about the room being too busy once other patterns are introduced I decided to try a more neutral rug in this space. This is Pottery Barn’s chunky wool and jute rug. While it isn’t what I originally pictured for this room, I think it looks really good. It’s a combination of the color of my couch and my table. Plus it’s SO soft. It doesn’t look like it would be, but it really is! Nice and thick and comfortable. It will hide everything my kids dish out.
I was going to put a jute rug similar to this in my dining nook under the table, but if I keep this in the family room I think I’ll add a colored/patterned rug in the nook instead.
Here are my pillow fabrics. (I crossed out the one on the far right because we were considering that for a rug for a while – ordered a sample and didn’t like the look of it at all).
In my last family room post I mentioned finally deciding what to do with the left corner of the room.
I ordered a chair! And I love it and it comes on Thursday. So I will share it soon!
Whew! That was a long post. With decor posts this long, don’t be surprised if I change my mind on furniture/accessory selections by the time I’m done typing.
