Kitchen Rug Decision/Update and Family Room Preview

Sunday, May 6, 2012

My every day readers will remember my dilemma about my kitchen rug, and will probably also remember that I moved it to the living room. So, I was stuck needing a kitchen rug again.  I ended up with the Dwell Draper ink. It came today, and I love it! It's very similar to the family room rug, but I don't care.  Here it is, although the photos stink because my camera stinks - the colors are different in every image. I had to lift the shadows a lot, and then everything gets washed out.  The second is probably the most accurate of the kitchen colors (but not of the dining room).  Oh, and I know I need a rug pad....on my to do list.






So I know I have been promising you photos of my family room forever.  It's pretty much ready, but I haven't had time to do pillows or paint, so that's the reason for the delay.  Since you can see it from these kitchen photos, though, I'm going to show you a preview, messy walls and all.  The paint will be light gray, but I'm just not sure which one yet.  It's my last big project, and I'm dying to find time to do it, as much as I dread it. I'd almost rather go fight in Iraq than paint a room, especially one with a 20' ceiling, so I tend to procrastinate.  But here it is in it's current state:

Hi,
I really like your new rug. You've inspired me to rotate my kitchen table 90 degrees. Can you tell me about the gray sofas in your family room, please? Love those, too.
Thanks for sharing and great job on your home!!

Stacy...I think it is perfect!...I so love the floor plan of your home...I love that you can see all three rooms from the kitchen, without the "one large room" effect. I love the way the corner work area divides the rooms just enough..All of the rooms are magnificently stunning!!!......I feel as though I am looking at pages from a magazine...Architectural Digest..have you seen this house????

Amanda said...

GREAT rug, I like how it goes with the dining room rug. Your home is gorgeous....do you ever get tired of reading that???:):) XO, Pinky

Your house is looking spectacular. So sophisticated and stylish. Love everything you've done. Those rugs are brilliant and just finish the rooms off. I don't understand why people choose not to put rugs under dining tables or seating areas, I think they just don't look complete without them, and they are so nice under foot. Great choices. Your living area is beautiful, wall colour or not. Love your colours scheme, and it's all great inspiration for me for our living room that I'm stuck about. THanks for sharing.

Your home is stunning! Doesn't even look like you need paint from the pictures but anxious to hear what gray you choose. The rugs look fantastic! Every thing looks awesome and has a very finished clean look! I posted your dresser today that you painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint..I need tips desperately!
Also, love love your kitchen!!
