A Before, An After, And A Thank You!

The Naked Truth...
In three words "too much oak!"

The area rug you all helped me select!

Adding the quilt to the table and
the little
metal child's chair and
some sparkly pillows
softens the
lines of the room and
texture to all the wood!
Finally! And the best
part of all..
Jim loves it!
I think he thought
would cover too much
of the
floor that he
loves so much.

I how it has just a little red in it
to make the chair feel more welcome.

It blends perfectly with the rug in the library!

Thank you for helping me make
this room feel a little more done.
It is always a work in progress but
the area rug is a nice new
addition to the mix.

On the wall color..The flash always makes it look so limey. It is more like the olive color in the corner where the light is not as bright on the wood. The walls are several shades lighter and definitely not chartreuse!

Hi Bon,
I love it, looks gorgeous, and defintely added some softness and texture to cut the looks of too much wood. those wood floors are wonderful tho, so pretty. Liked the quilt on the table and the lil chair with the pillows, so cute, and you are right it blends very well with the other rug. Good going girlies,
glad we could help with our opinions. It is really a beautiful rug, and looks super!!
Have a great day,
Love ya, Nellie
