New Rug For The Living Room

After we had put in the wood flooring throughout our condo a few months ago, I put down this area rug in our living room temporarily to see how a rug would look and until I could get one that fit in better ~ size and color wise.

Well, I did finally find a new area rug for the living room!  I got a bigger size {8x10} and it was under $200.00, on sale.  Plus out of the several they had with black in it, I liked it the best.

After Christmas, it will have to move over toward the window more {where the tree presently is} as well as move under the sofa a bit, but I’m liking the bigger size.  The temporary one is a 5x7.

The black, cream and beige goes well in this room and I like the little touch of red thrown in.   I think it needs to be walked on and “rest” a bit to get some of the ripples out from the rolling up.

I also got the door size to put over by our front door.  This one had even more ripples.  Any tips on getting the ripples out so it will lay flat?  I moved the temporary one into the sunroom.

I really love this rug and am glad I have a place I can use it.

All the shades of brown and beige work in here with the furniture, flooring, wall color, and window treatments.

So, it’s almost like getting two rugs for the price of one with this switcheroo!

In the event I don’t post again before Christmas ~ I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

I love your new rug Kathy and thats great getting rugs for both rooms~!
I got a 8x10 for my living room 2 months ago and its still living me fits about laying smooth. someone on a home forum I visit told me to set my iron on a low to medium setting and iron it- yikes, that scares me~! so I'm just living with the few ripples I still have.
I'll let you know if I find any tips for this issue.

Merry Christmas~!

Kathy your new rugs are great! We need a larger one for our living room too. Just have not found the right one yet in my range. To get the ripples out I always have to place heavy boxes on them. The indoor outdoor rugs are the worst to get out the ripples but eventually they do go away.

Gail said...

That sure is a beautiful gift for yourself Kathy! The rugs looks great! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Hugs, Gail

I LOVE LOVE the living room rug and have been on the hunt for one with similar colors! To get the ripples out, turn over, mist with hot water and lay it in the sun - don't do it on Hardwoods! Merry Christmas
