The curtains were my attempt to go "neutral". At first they didn't have the little valance topper but I couldn't get used to not having any color there, so I added the green at the top. The rug...oh...I'm learning not to buy something just because it's a good deal! No, it's a nice rug and I needed SOMETHING there. I love our brick floors but they are a little tricky to move chairs back and forth across, so a rug helps out there. I couldn't find one I really liked for the right price so I bought that one for a fill-in.
It was tricky to find the right sized rug. A 5x7 is too small and we have a floor vent to work around so an 8x10 was too big. I finally landed on a 6x9 and I think it will be just right. I bought this rug from Pier One and expect to be really happy with it. I've never had a natural fiber rug before so we'll see how it goes (and hopefully the wrinkles will flatten out!).
