We desperately need a rug for our living room. It's hardwood floors, and we have a hardwood coffee table that doesn't match the wood on the floors and it slides all over the place, which drives me bonkers.
When I say we desperately need a rug, that's probably not really true, but I'm allowed to be dramatic every once in a while. I would just really, really like one because I think it would bring us one step closer to having a real, grown-up apartment.
My plan is to use this tutorial as a guideline, and buy the 4'7" x 6'7" ERSLEV rug from Ikea. (just like she did) I've always been sure I want a simple, geometric pattern but I'm even more sure now that I will be taping everything off myself. This beautiful nursery has been all over the blogosphere and I really like the pattern and color used on the accent wall. I'm thinking it will be perfect.
Here are some images of (the pretty side of) our living room. I think navy will work well with the green couch and touches of blue in the art. What do you guys think?
On a side note, Aerosmith played a free concert in the street today just 2 blocks away from me! They were outside their first apartment, where they wrote their first album. I'm not a HUGE fan, but I couldn't turn down the chance to see them live. The streets were packed and I couldn't see a whole lot, but here are a few shots I got:
Hi, Steven Tyler!
Smoke and confetti for the finale. (Walk This Way!)
