During the past few months Matthew and I have been decorating a new apartment in Troy, New York. One of the benefits to having two apartments is that they can "share" items. If we get tired of a pillow in one apartment or don't know what to do with the side tables, we can try them in the other location. We bought a few indoor/outdoor rugs from our store and have been thinking about moving them to our apartment in Troy.
I've been in a bit of a rut imagining what to do with them, so I decided to get some inspiration from a few blogs I follow. The two rugs below are the exact ones we own. Both of these images come from the blog Everything LEB which you can check out here.
I love the combination of the strip and the ornate wallpaper in the image above.
I would have never imagined combining a dark wall with this rug, but I think it works because the credenza keeps it light and airy.
Once I started looking for inspiration, I couldn't stop. The acrylic table in the image above really updates this look. Also, notice how the mirrors on the wall make the room look so much larger. Brilliant!
I found this image on Canadian House & Home and decided I HAVE to find a staircase where I can do this. Isn't this awesome?
If you have bought rugs from us, we would love to see what you've done with them! You can send images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
