Finishing touches

I've been trying to focus on finishing touches in the house, like rugs and curtains and lighting. Over on Little Green Notebook there was a post on eSale Rugs. I ended up falling down the rabbit hole, driving Greg crazy by incessantly asking him, "Do you like this one? What about this one? How about these?"

I thought this Draper Stripe rug by Dwell Studio would be perfect (fairly inexpensive and cute) but Greg hated it. eSale Rugs seemed like it was more his style.

They had a bunch of rugs at 50% off ("Two more days!" they said a month ago--it sounds like everything is always 50% off) and we found one that we could both agree on. It arrived and we discovered that it was about an inch wider than they claimed, but other than that we liked it okay.

We don't love it (it's too wide) but you can't really beat $80 for a thick wool rug. And now our hallway doesn't echo when I yell, "What do you think of this rug? What about this one?" Anybody have a great source for rugs? I can't convince Greg to buy that beautiful Schoolhouse Electric one yet.


  1. I think it's's so funny, I love hardwood floors...and never want carpeting...but nothing makes a room feel so nice as a rug! I can understand Greg's hesitation..that's a lot of moolah to drop on a rug!

  2. I'm not sure I can even convince myself to spend that much on a rug, nice though it is!

  3. I know this is an old post but just found your blog and wanted to tell you how funny you are. Love your writing style!

  4. Thank you so much! And thanks for stopping by and leaving comments. :)
