We went rug shopping.

It takes a while to really “finish” a project.  And even when you finish, you still come back and tweak and update.

Earlier this week we went out on a quick rug shopping adventure for a project that was completed almost two years ago, but still needed a few things in its foyer. 

We took both of these beauties to try out.  The antique bottles were for the top of the armoire, but we were just eyeballing at this point…

We decided on the celadon and gold rug.  And those pillows are off my sofa, they worked so well that I’ve let the client borrow them until we find a suitable replacement.  She’s threatening to steal them from me… I don’t blame her, they look pretty darn good in there. 

The rug came from a local favorite – Oasis Rugs.  Their website is down, but if you see something you can’t live without I’m sure Charlann would be glad to help you out!  Her email is: charlann(at)oasisrugs(dot)com

Happy Fourth of July!!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

    I have to say I really enjoy you and your sister’s blogs. I have twin daughters (16 months) and I have a degree in interior design. You both have such great style and are just plain fun! Thanks for sharing your lives, I am enjoying following you both.

  5. Looks great E! Happy Fourth! xo

  6. LOVE the rug!

    But I have a question- will the bottles remain on the floor? If so, aren’t they narrowing the flow of traffic?

  7. Love that rug with the jugs….oh, that sounds like a bad country song. I’ll have to check out that store.

  8. I definitely love the rug in the last photo. Please tell me that your client chose that one! And yes, I do agree, your pillows look great on the entryway bench.
