They even show an example of what I'm thinking of doing in the living room. They have two identical rugs side-by-side in a large room.
We had two seagrass rug in the condo and decided to make a switch. So instead of the bedroom rug, we put the one from our old living room in there. The bed was already set up, so moving the rug was going to be a bit awkward. We decided to just take the bed apart at the headboard.
The rug was big enough to let the entire bed sit on it and there are two equal "runways" on the sides of the room. It's far less awkward looking than the little rug.
We're far from done, but we finally have a comfortable oasis from all the projects that come to mind when we walk into other rooms.
A surprise flower arrangement from my friends at Southern Blooms by Pat's Floral Designs (who did my wedding flowers!) was a sweet addition to my bedside table. Aren't they lovely?
Baxter is not impressed, though.
