I’ve been on this constant mission to make everything in my apartment bright and airy. When Adam moved in six years ago, we mixed his love of dark woods and brown with the vintage, mish-mash style that I loved then. Similar to when my clients are mixing their tastes for their wedding decor, our apartment was both of our past lives coming together. Fast forward to now and I’m no longer drawn to flea market finds. Instead, I want everything to be bright, colorful, geometric, clean, and contemporary. Just like the weddings I design. He is still drawn to exotic woods and neutral colors. While trying to re-design every room in our apartment, our living room rug was one of the darker pieces that I just couldn’t look at anymore.
Planning the decor and flowers for a wedding is exactly like building the look and feel of a home. Both people have styles, colors, and themes that they love, which all have to come together to create a cohesive look that they equally love.
Adam and I perused the RugsUsa website looking for a rug that would match the neutral/teal/brights color scheme we had going on in the living room, was light and airy, easy to clean, geometric, and contemporary. They have a lot of rugs that are inspired by Moroccan design, like the colorful one that we choose. It’s nice to be able to decide on decor pieces for our apartment together, instead of simply living with the choices that each of us made when we lived apart.
That’s our old rug on the left and the new, awesome, rug on the right. SO MUCH BETTER. Right!?!? It’s amazing what a lighter and brighter piece can do to a room. It’s so much more colorful now. And you know I love me some color. The rug is really soft and plush, which comes in handy when I’m sitting on the floor finishing up last minute projects.
