so. against my initial judgement, let's talk about one of the first things i've actually committed to (yay commitment!) . . . the family room rug. exciting? maybe only to me. feel free to humor me here.
as of now, my vision for this room involves basically different everything furniture-wise (except the armoire and maaaaybe the parsons chairs) and i seriously heart the idea of grasscloth walls (leaning towards yellow hues), but a similar arrangement. i imagine an upholstered ottoman eventually, which will break up the pattern a little, but i'm otherwise really loving the visual impact of our new trellis rug!

i considered something "safer" like charcoal (which is quite lovely, if you ask me), but was compelled to go with more color. mostly because i haven't committed to a sofa and, subsequently, a sofa fabric/color. gray on gray isn't my goal for this room. although, i'm not against it in theory.
other commitments include a beautiful new upholstered bed for the master, but we are lacking appropriate bedding, so you'll have to wait to see that.
i'll elaborate on my vision for this room in an upcoming post.
