Musings #4 The Trimmings

Though the floors looked elegant, they needed a little dressing up. And so I went in search for the perfect area rug accents. I was truly amazed when I found a really funky rug for the living room area. I sent the picture to David’s phone and was shocked that he, too, liked it. So I toted it home.

With black and burgundy and gold and hunter green and purple and tan and navy, it fit right in with our navy leather couches. Then I wanted a burgundy throw for the couch and I found it. On another shopping expedition, I stumbled onto a multi-colored metal wall hanging. Again, I was worried I was going over the edge with it, but David loved it as much as I did. It pulled the room together. See what you think.OK, so the hangings aren’t on the wall yet.

Now they are!
