I really feel like I’ve shared our household room a ton recently — and I wasn’t planning to once more right now. BUT I’m so thrilled with the way it’s trying with some current additions. I wished to point out you ways a lot altering out (or simply including!) a rug can actually cozy up an area. 

The chairs and rug (from the outdated home) we have had in our household room have labored properly since we moved in. The chairs are 4 years outdated and have seen a ton of use. They have been tremendous cozy (you may see them within the pics under), and actually spacious. We actually do love them. (They are within the basement now).

But the solar did a quantity on them at our outdated home they usually have been light badly. Our canine did some harm years in the past as properly by “digging” into the cushions. Do your canines try this? 🙂 Thankfully he would not do it a lot anymore. 

Anyway, we have been trying to change them for a minimum of a 12 months now. We’ve flipped the cushions as a lot as we will. 🙂 I used to be going to buy the very same ones, however they are not bought anymore. (I even regarded into having them reupholstered, however the first quote I acquired was greater than I wished to spend.) Finding two an identical chairs that are not a fortune (AND are cozy) is sort of inconceivable. You know the way it goes — both you discover one thing which may work when you could have no cash, or you could have the cash and you’ll’t discover something. 

The different evening I ran right into a HomeGoods for the primary time in endlessly they usually have been proper. there. after I walked in. And to my shock, so snug! I texted a pic to my husband and we determined to go for it. 

They match completely in there! And they swivel…mainly the very best factor ever. That’s been our favourite half to date:

Can you see the rug? 😍😍 More on that in a minute. 

The rounded form of the brand new chairs positively softens the room too — it wasn’t till I put these in place that I spotted how boxy the whole lot was earlier than. 

Funny factor is, our canine is NOT pleased with these. Ha! He cannot nestle in on the again/cushion and be looking out. He sits on the chair now as an alternative however it’s simply not the identical for the poor nugget. The cats alternatively, nonetheless love them:

Now onto the opposite massive change in right here! I bought the rug weeks in the past after going backwards and forwards for what was in all probability two months. I wasn’t positive I wished a bigger measurement and that the darker tones would work properly.

I should not have anxious. It’s a completely gorgeous rug!! I’m so so so thrilled with it. It’s the Loloi Layla Collection rug in olive and charcoal. It has a ton of colours in it:

Pinks, greens, maroon, even slightly little bit of aqua? It’s attractive. 

(By the way in which, the worth on these rugs change typically, so maintain a lookout. Ours has already gone up significantly since we purchased it, however it was even much less after I first began trying.)

Because it is slightly greater than what we had earlier than, I used to be in a position to pull the sofas additional out and push the chairs in additional. We have a bit extra strolling room behind the chairs now: 

Two swivel chairs facing TV/fireplace

It helps we will type of flip the chairs into the area — that provides us extra room as properly. We love that we will flip them to place our ft up on the sofas or no matter.

Our different rug was a lot thicker — this one could be very skinny. So for those who choose some cush in your rug this would possibly not work properly for you. But when you’ve got children or animals I extremely suggest it! It will disguise EVERYTHING. 😂

Here are a number of earlier than and afters — with our outdated rug from the outdated home (I imagine this was from HomeGoods):

I may see altering them out with the seasons — perhaps I’ll need the sunshine again for spring and summer season? I’m not massive on altering out greater gadgets for the seasons, however we nonetheless have the lighter rug so we’ll see! 

I really like the way it grounds the area. It ties at nighttime hearth wall and constructed ins superbly:

And I name it “dark” however it’s not overly so. I’d nonetheless name it a impartial piece as a result of it really works with nearly any shade.

I’ll have so as to add a night pic sooner or later, as a result of that is when it is coziest in right here. I’m SO pleased with how heat it feels on this area.

The new chairs brighten up the room and the brand new rug grounds it. An incredible mixture! 

A rug makes a BIG assertion and may actually change the entire really feel of a room. It can be some of the costly purchases. My favourite reasonably priced spots for bigger rugs are Rugs USA, HomeGoods and this one is from Amazon — I’ve by no means bought one from there earlier than! (You also can find this rug here and here

Here’s a greater view of the rug from upstairs:

It’s been two years since we moved in and this area is feeling so very similar to us now. I’ve mentioned it 1,000,000 occasions and can say it once more…take your time in terms of buying for/adorning areas. You will make significantly better choices and can take pleasure in them longer.

I by no means remorse ready for the proper merchandise on the good time. 🙂
