I’m stuck, you guys. On a whim I placed one of the cast-off rugs we were debating for the laundry room under the kitchen table and decided that I really liked the look of a rug in the space. Just maybe not that exact rug (found at Home Goods for $59).
Kirk was sold on it and my mom loved it, but something about it wasn’t speaking to me. I thought maybe it was that the pattern was a little busy when paired with all those table and chair legs. With that in mind I purchased another rug in similar colors, but with a simplified pattern (it’s priced at $203, but I got it on sale and with a coupon for almost half that).
We’ve been living with this one under the table for a week or so and I’m starting to miss Option #1. It’s like I didn’t know a good thing when I had it. Or something. Now I love this rug, I really do, but it makes this space seem so … heavy. I think I need to send it back. I’d keep it and use it somewhere else, but there’s no other room in our house that can handle a 5′ x 8′ rug — it’s way too small.
I know I’m totally over thinking this. It’s just a rug. But what do you think? Is one of these an amazing rug that deserves my adoration?
