Another Area Rug.....

I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday.

Earlier this month I showed you my small living room that we are using as our TV room.  Here is a picture I showed you here.
We have added an area rug to this room too.  See the picture below.
It is amazing to me how much warmer the room looks and feels with this rug.  Even without any art on the walls.
I love the little bit of blue in the rug. I have been trying to add a little blue, in with all of the red, green and yellow.  You can click on the pictures to enlarge and see the pattern better.

We bought one more rug, for the dining room and I will show you that next time.

Welcome Home,
Penny

Hi Penny, I think it looks beautiful! It does make a room doesn't it and adds so much warmth. Can't wait to get new rugs too but they're on the very bottom of my list.. you take gorgeous pics too by the way.. take care, Maryann

What a difference a rug makes - and the colours in this one are perfect. I, too, like the touch of blue.

Beverly said...

Ooh, Penny. The rug is perfect, and it looks fantastic. You're doing your magic.

I am headed back to work today.

Gorgeous rug, and it's perfect in your tv room! You're doing such a wonderful job pulling everything together, Penny!

Stacey said...

Penny, rugs do make all the difference. Your rooms are coming together beautifully.

Now are you going to put anything on the wall around or above the big tv? We just got one at Christmas and I'm not too sure what to do.

Looks great, a rug anchors a room.

Beautiful rug Penny - it's getting really cozy in there.
Fighting a beastly cold - cozy feels good right now - it was hard to leave the confines of the duvet this morning - I could have stayed there much longer!!

Have a fun week dear.

Penny, your rug choices are great. They really do warm up a room and make the house echo less, too.

I love wood floors, but there is no disputing how much color, warmth and beauty a gorgeous rug adds to a room. This makes such a bug difference and I always love orientals the best for their luxurious pattern and color. This is wonderful Penny!

The rug pulls it all together and adds warmth for sure. I am just noticing you have 4 chairs and no couch. I guess with the ottomans it isn't missed!

Vee said...

Such a lovely rug...and, as you say, so warm and defining!

Manuela@TPOH said...

That's a beautiful rug and it really does make the whole room feel warmer!

This looks wonderful Penny. Absolutely makes a difference. I love this rug!

Willow said...

It looks so lovely.

We have wood floors and when we moved here we put carpet down in the livingroom. We are now planning on removing it and refinish the floors and we will be putting an area rug in the room.

My Daughter has wood floors and can't wait to put carpet down.

Nice rug selection - it really does warm up the room. I think blue will be a nice addition to the room. Lovely home.

I hope you'll drop by AtticMag this week to tour my home.

Wow Penny, that rug makes such a beautiful difference! I absolutely love the colors :)

see you there! said...

The room does have a warmer feeling and the best part is that you can always move the rug if you decide you want to. I love my hardwood floors and I'll bet you do too.

Another gorgeous rug! It is so perfect in there. I have no blue in my house and had also thought about trying to bring some in. Mmmm, maybe some blue plates or pillows...

Donna said...

Oh Penny, these are all my colors! I love the rug, it looks gorgeous!

Hugs,

Carpets seem to tie a room together. This one does so beautifully.

Pamela said...

Very pretty Penny! I am adding a little blue in here and there as well.

Ummm, what a delightful room..Love that rug!

I love the warmness and softness that the rug adds. It is gorgeous with chairs. Hope you have a great week.

Now you need a little blue pillow or two and plants! Where are your plants?

Beautiful room, the rug makes it so much warmer. Love the chairs.

Hi Penny, I'm a lurker on your blog and guess what, all the rugs have brought me out !!

What an amazing difference they make ! Your dining room - all of a sudden that pretty picture on the wall in the red matting pops.

I am especially fond of the TV room rug. I have been looking for a rug with blue in it and my home has very similar colors to yours. May I ask where you got it/who makes it ? I'd love to get one myself.

Thanks so much and keep up the good work. It's all coming together so beautifully. Patience IS a virtue :)
