The navy rug was his original nursery rug from our old house, where it laid on lighter carpet and really looked amazing! When we moved into this house, the dark rug just got lost against the dark wood floors. I still liked the rug, so I didn’t really want to shop for a new one. I found this cream shag rug on major sale so I decided to layer it under the navy one to provide some contrast. Now, the navy rug looks great again, and as an added bonus, he has a soft place to play!
Having a few inches sticking out beyond the existing rug has made this space feel bigger and more grounded…less like it’s just floating out there in the middle of the living room. Now, our coffee table on the other hand, definitely feels like it’s floating out there in the middle of nowhere. ? It’s too small for this space, and one day we will get a new one, but I haven’t found one I love…so for now, this one serves it’s purpose!
