Thinking about...

Southern Living via Matters of Style

...thinking about doing something like this in the back of the living room...we need a casual eating area that can also double as a secondary seating area in the living room. 

We have a bamboo settee and lots of bentwood side chairs already that will work nicely...I may go with a skirted table instead of a tulip table...like this burlap one...but in the ivory burlap (love the fringe)...we will see!

It is always fun moving furniture around!

...also...this image below from Southern Living (not so much my colors in the room)...but love the idea of having identical striped rugs on either side of the room.  


Southern Living via Meet Me in Philadelphia

We have a large Persian in the living room that is big enough for the center seating area (and I love it)...but would really like to have a longer rug that reaches each end of the living room better...to soften the room a bit...

I was thinking about finding a really large sisal area rug and layering the Persian on top of it...but may just add a two of these 5'x8' taupe & white striped rugs on either end of the Persian... 

...rugs must be on my mind this week...


...most likely because the rug installers are in our home right now ripping out the old stair runner and later this week will be putting in the new sisal stair runner...


Happy Monday!

Such gorgeous images. I have that BAllard's skirt in burlap myself, (somewhere).

oh i think the eating nook would be awesome! i love the idea of the burlap ruffled skirt- and i am with you- i like white burlap better!
can't wait to see the new runner- that image is dreamy!

Two brilliant ideas here with the runners on either side of small rug (love your subtle stripe!) and with the camelback sofa used as banquette.
