A Little More Room to Live

Another change that happened a while ago was the living-room-rug-switcheroo. The other rug we had was fine, but it was a little small.

I knew a new rug would add some functionality; the “floating” loveseat would move less if two legs were on a rug (and I also added better grippers to the back legs). And it would also be a better space for toddler playing and adults who may or may not be lying on the floor with said toddler.

I ended up finding a rug that was being discontinued at a home center here in Minneapolis. That was good news because it was the right size, right color scheme and right price. I knew I wanted something with a slight pattern but more neutral. When I saw it on the display I thought it looked more Ikat-y. But looking at a photo later realized it was more floral-y.
