I could pretend that it was that easy and that I was super content with my living room as is, but really…I still wanted a rug.
Then last week a fellow blogger and self-taught decorator that I love, Jackie from Teal and Lime, shared a picture on her facebook page of what her living room looked like with and without her rug. I couldn’t believe how great the space looked WITH the rug.
I suddenly (as if I had no choice) found myself in Target roaming the rug aisle (for the eleventh time in four months) and staring at the same rug that I’ve looked at multiple times wondering…is this the one? Since I am such a visual person I convinced myself that I should bring it home and try it.
When he asked, “yeah, what happened?”
I told him, “I guess I just realized that right now there are other things that are more important to me than having a pretty rug in the living room.”
Bringing that rug home and returning it the very next day might seem pointless to some but for me…it was just what I needed to conclude that our living room is fine just the way it is.
