Ok, I am so super excited about my new rug. It was a major impulse buy, and I LOVE it! I have admired zebra print rugs in magazines and brave homes for a long time. Well, I finally got the courage to try one in my modest little home. I think it adds just the right amount of personality and pizazz to a space that sometimes seems very boring and predictable to me, sans the chocolate brown walls! And with a touch of aqua blue...yummy.
I love the way it looks with my giant black armoire and dropcloth tableskirt. Now I'm on a mission to find or make (hot glue) some cute pillows in a fun fabric. I'm thinking big aqua blue and white polka dots. Any suggestions? My husband is worried that it looks too busy, but I like this room's eclectic feel. Modern mixed with traditional mixed with yard sale treasures. The perfect brew of my self-proclaimed style... "Funky Traditional".
And just so you can rest assured that I like to keep it real...this picture for your viewing pleasure. As you can plainly see this was not staged in any way, shape, or form....several piles of folded laundry, dolls, toys, books, and more. I live in a real house with 6 real people who make real messes ALL.DAY.LONG. And I was way too tired to clean it up...even for you, my friends. So this is what you get...a big ol' dose of my reality!
