Decor Updates


This is just a quick update on my decorating situation.

If you read my last blog, you will know I am decorating my flat at the moment. I was very excited to get my new rug for my living room, as I had picked out the perfect rug which would match my colour scheme wonderfully.

On Saturday my Rug was delivered and I was very disappointed to find out it was a completely different colour to what it was on the website. This was a real shame for me as I was so excited to get it. I had previously gone into the shop and to see the colour and even asked them to look out the back, but it wasn't there for me to view, so I went ahead with what I had seen online. The rug itself was lovely, really soft and the perfect size, however, the shade was about 5 shades darker than it was on the website. Instead of the 'dusty pink' it stated it was, it was actually a dark purple colour.

As I lay the rug out, I started to get used to it, but the purple and pink decor just didn't go and I was still unsure when I looked at it. I paid £130 for this rug and I think if you pay this much you have to be sure it's the right one and this one just wasn't. The rug was too dark and made the room feel almost smaller, which I certainly didn't want.

This was a very large rug because it was for my living room floor, so returning it was a bit of a pickle. Luckily I had someone with me who was able so help carry it onto the tube. Safe to say we got some strange looks!

And this was the actual rug
So now I'm on the hunt for a new rug! I have a light brown wooden floor so it has to go with this, I also have a dark brown sofa, and pink decorations in there as well as pink curtains. I'm thinking maybe a cream rug, but definitely want to see it in the shop. Let me know what colours you guys think would go with this and if you could recommend any rugs for me, that would be great.

If I've learnt anything from this it would definitely be to look at the rug in the shop before you buy it!
