Our Rug Choice

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 by Stephen

I know we asked for your opinions (thanks, kika!), but... we went with a completely different rug. This one isn't as far out as some of the others, but it's still fun. Unfortunately, there was no picture of the round version, so we don't quite know what it looks like, but I GIMPed (Photoshopped) the picture of the rectangular version on the rug's page on Overstock to get this:


Rethinking and Rugs

Saturday, March 20, 2010 by Stephen

The exercise we did for our last post was beneficial. We got to see what our ideas actually look like, and they look stupid. I guess it's better to put those ideas out there than to have buyer's remorse.

After tallying up what all the little changes we planned would cost (4 rugs, 2 slipcovers, pillows, shades, curtains, etc.), we decided that we needed to change our plan a little. Instead, we'll buy just two rugs: one for the living room and one for our bedroom. Our current living room rug can go in Marlee's room for now.

Since we're not trying to make everything work together at once, we want to revisit our rug choice. We'd like to get a colorful 8' round rug. Below is what we like from (many of the pictures are not round, but we would order the round version). What do you think?

Playing Interior Designer - Living Room

Friday, March 19, 2010 by Stephen

So, we don't have our condo docs, and something could still go wrong with the buying process, but that doesn't stop us from playing interior designer. Here's our vision for the initial living room design. We want your input.

We're keeping the same couch and chair that we already have, we would just add the pictured slipcovers. The lamps, side tables, and coffee table we already have. The brown pillow is ours, but the other one is only similar to something we have. The rug and curtains we would buy. We'll paint eventually, but we want to spend some time there first.

When dance-walking becomes an Olympic exhibition sport, Marlee will be ready.



A walk down the street

Marlee and I went on a walk a few days ago.

Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Edsall for the cable knit sweater, and to GiGi Nan for the handknit hat.

(We call this her hippo smile.)

What a big girl!
