Slowly but surely, my living room is coming together. The first major purchase was the rug and people, it’s gorgeous. It changes the entire character of the room and I LOVE it. There was a major freak out about the size. This bad boy is 10′ x 14′ and my living room is an odd shape. First, I tried it one way. Then another. Eventually I realized I need to re-imagine the entire room. I needed to leave my preconceived notions of how it looks now and imagine what it’s going to look like in the future. It took a minute. There was *a little* panic because I wasn’t sure if I could return the rug if it was too big. Thankfully it all worked out.
