When we first move into our new house (I know, almost two and a half years ago!) We went from having all carpets in our previous home to 100% hardwoods downstairs. We moved into this house with no area rugs and I had no luck finding any within our budget I actually liked. So we went two years with no area rugs and now that we have one, I finally realize the difference it makes when it comes to adding that cozy touch to a room!
My one philosphy when it comes to decorating my house is simplicity. I don’t like things plastering my walls, I like a clean look with a pop of color and our family’s flair. You will clearly see my simplistic approach through these photos.
Here’s our living room before :
Neat and tidy, but a living room should be more cozy right? My kids want to lay on the floor and read books, the dogs want somewhere comfy to lounge, and I want this room to feel a little bit more warm. Our entire downstairs has a big open floorpan, so I like having a little bit of close quarters in the living room where we spend most of our time to relax.
While browsing the website, I found the selection is literally endless, and you ca even find some of their styles in stores like Target too! These were some of my favorites while browsing. I knew I wanted something neutral incase we ever switch up our decor, but the colors in our house currently are more grays/browns with some pops of teal thrown in.
Ultimately, I decided on this Shimmer Shag rug in graphite. I love how it’s completely changed the look and fell of the room!
The rich color and texture of the rug makes it stand out and it gives our living room that cozy feeling I was looking for. The 5×8 is the perfect size to lay in front of our fire place and I was so shocked at how different a rug can make a room look! Our room now feels like a living room as opposed to the cold hardwoods drowning out the overall look. I’m now convinced we need the perfect rugs to find for our sunroom and office next! I love the shag and shimmer look, it really looks gorgeous next to our fireplace and brings out the colors in our living room.
