Dearest readers: I am contemplating which rug to buy for my living room and I am in need of help. The Goal: Get something to connect the furniture and give it a better foundation. It also has to be durable to help extend the life of the wall-to-wall broadloom underneath.
The Vision: I am going with tones of brown and cream...and then depending on the season, I want to layer in greens or oranges. I want everything major (walls, rugs, drapes) to be a tone-on-tone or within different hues.
The Background: Brown is my favorite color. It is, I am sorry. It's the color of chocolate, it's the color of my dog, and it plays SOOO nicely with other colors. Rich, creamy, dark brown...mmmm.
The Problem: First choices of rugs...brown. Too much brown. HELP!
(Please Ignore the toddler shoes and socks! Oh, and the B-ball game....)
