I quickly popped into Anthro and happen to swing by the rug section and see this bright & ever so cheerful number:
on sale. in the size i needed. and...they let me use my birthday discount a month early. figured i take a few quick pics and post them to keep you all up to date ( i actually need to pull it back just a tad still).
it's a colorful pop on the floor and has a lot of coral in it, which i love. it kinda reminds me of the fun rifle paper flowers that adorn their stationary that i adore so much. now...if you voted neutral, you hate this one.
anyone who wanted to the pop of color, you into it at all? i realize it makes this room much more feminine, but i think with the right accessories, furniture, etc. it might not seem as girlie.
BUT, i have one last rug to try (craziness...but, this isn't too much of a hassle- 5x7 rugs are super light and all easy to return) and then then the rug deal is over. of course i'll do one last update at some point with the lucky rug that gets to stay...
thank you again to everyone who left a comment on the last post with their opinion. i really appreciate it!
