Seasonal Rug Switch

With the hot days of summer upon us I have adapted my living room to better suit my mood and season.  Gone is the layered jute/cowhide look and layered ottoman.  I wanted something a little more minimal, a little cooler.  So we just have the cowhide down and I’m really enjoying the wood floors for a change!  I also switched up my La Fiorentina bench for my vintage live-edge table.  I love the organic feel of the table and it’s a nice scale for the petite room.

Cowhide rug slipcover sofa and bamboo chair

One of the benefits of the smaller rug- besides enjoying those wood floors- is that my entry mat and rug no longer overlap.  I have a teeny house with no foyer so the front door walks right into the living room.  It’s nice to have a little visual space there.

Next up is a little pillow and art change up.

But I’m in no hurry… it’s summer after all.  Let’s go outside!

Dish: Do you change up your decor for the seasons?

It makes all the difference.

  1. Looks great Naomi! I love to lighten up in the summer also.

  2. Your place is such a great example of investing in some key, classic pieces and having them stand the test of time! Love seeing such beautiful pieces mixed in to your last place and this one. Can’t wait to see what’s next!

  3. I don’t have many seasonal accessories, but I do change my household scents for the seasons. I crave herbal, bright, citrusy scents in the warmer months, and while it may not be as impactful as your update, it really does make a difference. Happy summer!

    I change my curtains… Red in the winter, white in the summer. I usually change them around the daylight savings change in time. It allows me to wash/ dry clean them… The winter ones get so dusty because of our fireplace. And I have six panels in our living room!
