HOUSE: Newburgh + Scavenging

Colors! And a coffee table after all, maybe.


Isn’t this rug great?! It’s the Unni from IKEA. We bought two of them this weekend thinking we’d line them up in the hallway as a runner, but it worked out better to put one out there and one in here instead. I actually like how small it is, it’s just a happy little colorful surprise in the middle of the room. Also, it looks like the $15 coffee table is going to be used as a coffee table after all, at least for the time being. I’m not sure how permanent either of these pieces are in this room, but for now, they’re making me happy.

    Wow! That looks awesome. I really do like the “colorful surprise” it brings to the room! I have a snow day today, so I am goofing off at home! I may try to take some pictures of the snow later.

    I have 2 of the same rugs as a hall runner. Thinking of sewing 6 together with big thick thread as a room rug. P.S. Love your place.

    Such happy colors. I need to get to Ikea. I just know I am going to spend a fortune so I am waiting until I have more moola in the pocketbook.

    New to your blog. I am really enjoying it. You have wonderful style.
