Walk On the Wild Side

I have just a liiiitle living room update for ya today, but I’m here to tell you that this small addition makes the room.  I was chatting with my mom-in-law at the brunch we hosted at our house a couple of weekends ago and I was telling her that the missing piece for our living room was the hide rug that I wanted to layer on top of the existing natural fiber rug.  She asked me what color I was thinking, and I told her a beige-y neutral.  At which point she looked at me and said… What about zebra?

Immediately I realized that a zebra rug was what this room needed to fully come together.  I am so excited because it totally adds that splash of personality that this room was craving.

The rug that we ended up purchasing was just a little more than $100.  I will say that when it was delivered and we unwrapped it, it smelled SO BAD.  Like farm animal.  There’s no other way to put it.  I checked the reviews to see if anyone else experienced this but no one else reported it so I have no idea.  After a few hours, the rug aired out and all was fine.

I’m really excited to start adding some blue and white pieces for the Summertime soon — and I may or may not have picked up a little something to start that off over the weekend.  😉
