Color Me Rad

I love color! I am glad to see color is "in", but that wouldn't affect my decorating choices. You're looking at a picture of my new living room rug. You may remember (and kudos if you do) my apartment complex (finally) put new carpet in my living room. It was stained when I moved in so it was a welcome change. I hadn't had the money to get a living room rug until now. I like to have a rug to prevent well trafficked areas of the carpet from wearing out. The longer it lasts the better. Do you love color? My sister is just the opposite; she prefers more sedate hues.

I love that color for your rug. For me, it certainly would stand out on a light colored carpet, like light brown or light colors. Although here where we are in a tropical climate and it is dusty, I prefer not to have rugs because it gathers so much dust.
I do like that colour and pattern. When decorating our homes we've always gone with the neutrals, but coloured accents. My husband is pretty conservative on that subject, so I just go along with it, but am always trying to push for more. Enjoy this, I'm sure that you will!

My dad is like you. His wife brought her brown furniture when they got married (his furniture was also brown, just darker) and changed the coral drapes to white drapes. My dad is like, where is the color? She has no color in the living room, not even a vase. It's kind of depressing.

This looks a good quality rug and waiting for it was probably worth it. I do like it, although it would not be my choice ofr my own home as I like Oriental and Ethnic. Hopefully this will look good for years to come.
