Sometimes all you need is a little change

 ...or a big change. Sometimes changing something small can actually make the biggest impact. 

Pin It
After the summer home tour, I really just felt like I needed a change. I had already taken up the Karabakh kilim and had been using only the jute rug, which, as bland as it is, was kind of like a palate cleanser. 

Then I really knew I wanted to get my Turkish yahyali rugs out for the coming season, and that meant some other changes since the main colors are red and blue. 

They were stored at a friend's house, so in the meantime I decided to use the cream overdyed rug I had in the music room. 

And I loved it. 

This rug is neutral, obviously, but the pattern is still bold enough to add some texture and interest. 

I changed out some of the accessories with things I had here, and pillow covers as well, and I am loving this look. 

My plan is actually to move this rug to underneath the dining table but I'm waiting on a rug pad, so for now, it is here. 

It's amazing the difference a little change can make:-)

I'll be joining:


  1. Oh I love this look too. The rug is gorgeous and looks so pretty in this room

  2. Your room is so colorful and amazing, my eye doesn't have time to look at the rug. :>) Your collection of pillows and accents is warm and inviting and look wonderful regardless of whatever rug may be on the floor.

  3. Love everything, Anita! You have a nice mix of elegance and casual! I'd feel right at home. I really love your selection of pillows!
