Rugs as Carpeting
by Heather W.
My apartment has a very large livingroom and unfortunately I don't have a lot of furniture to fill the room. I had the idea to cover the floors with multiple different but coordinating rugs and was on a quest to find some. I went with a decorating color palette of dark red and told my friends what I was looking for so they could keep an eye out. People are always getting rid of rugs when they change their decor. My friend Lisa found the rug on the right for me at a garage sale for 20 bucks!
I love the way this room looks with my new "carpet" and it feels so warm and rich looking now. The red curtains were a splurge, I'm not a sewer so I'm not going to attempt that. The furniture were all hand me downs from my aunt. This went from my least favorite to my favorite room in the apartment.
I'm still not thrilled with the painting over the fireplace and I think I'll change that eventually. It is a tough because it is a corner. Anyone have ideas?
