Peacock Teal

We were pretty much settled on the 8′ x 10′ Diamond Trellis Dhurrie Rug in Peacock Teal from Shades of Light (which sells for $599 before shipping).

& then, few weeks ago, a gorgeous, huge (9′ x 13′) rug came up on One Kings Lane (the teal rug on the bottom left):

I’d had my eye on these types of rugs for a while; they are (or are based on) the Fallon pattern by Jill Rosenwald, which sell for a whopping $1,238.

I’d seen them on Overstock, but they were always prohibitively expensive (& currently sold out):

But on One Kings Lane, they had the SAME rug for $829. I used a 20% off discount code & got an all wool, 9′ x 13′ teal trellis rug for…

We saved $906.  That’s a lot a double cheeseburgers. But enough babbling, right? Get to the pictures, right? Here you go:

I love how much it softens the room. We’ve got a lot of angular lines in room: the couch, the parson’s desk, the TV table, & the console. The curves make it feel more balanced. Can’t wait to hang some curtains!

We also started painting (with generous help from my parents!). It’s not all done yet (hence why the TV wall isn’t in these photographs) but when it is I’ll post more about it. We’re painting in Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore in Valspar Satin paint.

    Love love the wall color and that rug is perfect. BUT GOOD LORD TO LIVE A LIFE WHERE YOU CAN BUY A 700 DOLLAR RUG. I will never be able to afford more than a 20 dollar ikea one :P

      while i was painting, i was thinking about how much you hated that yellow/tan color right along with me. & it made me not hate painting as much. a good portion of the rug funding came from my tax return. it was definitely a splurge.
