Last week I talked about how I plan to keep my living room rug neutral. It will be a 6 x 9 jute rug with a tan cowhide layered over it. It just so happens that I have this set up in my current bedroom, so I thought I’d share the look in real life.
I’m also going to have the wood chair in my living room, though I think I’ll recover the seat. Not that I think zebra is out (it’s a classic,) or zebra and cowhide can’t play together (I love a good menagerie,) it’s just not what I’m feeling for the space. I want softer.
The rattan coffee table used to be my nightstand in the loft. It’s a great size for my teeny tiny living room and may live there temporarily until I find something I love. I like the concept of glass over the rugs, but I’m just not sure yet. I want the rest of the room to fill in.
PS- the rug was bought forever ago on Overstock. I hope to upgrade to Merida or Fibreworks at some point. Jenny wrote a great post on jute rugs here. The cowhide is from Ebay… I think.
