This was the last room for us to work on in the new house, and now it’s
definitely one of my favorites! It’s the first room yo see when you walk in, AND you can see it all lit up at night from the street, which I love.
I’m glad we took our time putting it together, and didn’t just fill it up just to fill it up.
I had no real plans when designing, except that I wanted it to be rustic, but still chic.
Does that even make sense?
Well, it made sense to me, and I think I accomplished my goal!
Here’s the picture you saw the first time I talked about the dining room.
It was mostly done, except we still needed a rug!
(Click HERE for the first post if you want to see a source list for items in the room.)
Here’s another angle.
I’m standing in the entry way, and that’s the Butler’s Pantry that leads to the kitchen through the arched doorway.
Our last home didn’t have hardwood floors, so until we moved, I’d never had to pick out rugs before. I was able to find one that I liked for the main living area, but this area kind of stumped me.
Enter Michaela over at Michaela Noelle Designs (you can also find her on instagram HERE).
She threw together a couple of mood boards for me with two different rug choices that she suggested. (Find all of the services she offers HERE!)
I was soooooo overwhelmed with the THOUSANDS of rug options out there, but the second I looked at the two choices (Michaela found two GORGEOUS rugs from Lulu and Georgia), I knew which rug I wanted to try.
But I still asked for y’all opinions!
So, several days after the VOTE post went live, I went back and counted the votes!
It wasn’t a land slide victory, but there was definitely a clear winner.
And great news for me, most of you ladies liked the rug that I liked the most!
Rug #1 received 58% of the vote.
So, I got RUG #1 c/o Lulu and Georgia!!!!
And I am THRILLED with the choice!
It’s GORGEOUS in the space.
The colors are perfection, the pattern was just what I was looking for, and it really just warms up the space exactly like I had hoped it would!
I’m in love.
With a rug.
And I’ve got a crush on the rest of the room too.
Before we go today, I want to show you some other items that I received back in September (right after we moved in) c/o Lulu and Georgia.
See ALL of their current rugs HERE.
I love our front door mat also c/o Lulu and Georgia.
