I hope I'm not spoiling Molly's reveal post. But, the result of my guest appearance was not a landslide victory for the new rug. But, we decided to live with it a bit, and if we side with the haters (okay, the "maybe you should keep looking-ers") we can move this rug to the guest room or office or even the Bun's room someday. It's versatile.
For now, though, the new rug is so happy and bright. And, the living room? Well, it feels like a "room" now. We sit in there, we play Legos on the rug. Domestic bliss, really.
I did not add this to the Waffle, since I wanted a pure reaction to the rug choice on it's own merits. And weighed against the non-movable items in the rooms (the other rugs and furniture). But the entry? Well, the green, Sweet Daphne, and the rug, Flor's Needlepoint Stripe in Laurel....well, they are changeable, Easily so.
So, maybe now is the time? If the bulls-eye rug is the new star of my living room, the entry needs to take a step back. Maybe the green can stay. Maybe. I do love it. But the Flor tiles? Meh. They lasted almost 4 years and they are pretty filthy. I'm okay with a change.

Molly, you out there??? Any thoughts?
