Again

2.13.2012

Now I am ready to show y'all the newest look of the sun room again. I had told y'all in an earlier post after I revealed the new look that it had taken on a bird theme and that was not the new look I was going for so with a few changes it is now where I want it. Well, for the time being.

This WAS the new look, but not quite right.

This is her new look. When I ordered a small 2 x 3 version of this rug from Joss & Main I brought it in here and just loved it so I went on the hunt for a larger one and found it on wayfair.com formerly csn.com. 

I thought I could live with the neutral rug, but nope nada. I love this rug. It is 100% wool. Probably the most I have ever spent on a rug this size, too. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet.



I added old grain sacks to the wicker chairs.













I added this bull to the basket just for the heck of it.









Bought this candle holder from Wuslu just like my sister did. Neither one of us knew the other had ordered it.










I believe it has more of the look I was going for now.
Gotta love that red rug.

  10. Hi Kim, love the red rug, and all the grain sacks and pillows you have used in the new room. Very pretty - as always.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I really love it! The new rug is a great contrast to the neutral colors that you've got and ties in with the other pops of red in the room. You can't go wrong with a wool rug either. It will last forever!

  14. I love the changes Kim. The rug is perfection. I am going to bookmark these sites. Looking for a rug for the little master bedroom makeover I am working on.

  15. I do love that red rug. It makes the other red accents stand out more like the grain sack stripes. And, yes, it is important sometimes to "bite the bullet" and get a really fabulous piece. I tell my husband it's an investment!

  19. Hi Kim, The room looks great (I loved it before too!) I know you said that you paid a lot for the rug but if it's all wool then you should have it around for a long time!!! XO CIndy

  20. Oh, I love it Kim!! I'm also a color person, so I love your red. Neutral is great, but I have to have a few rooms with red. I am now following with Linky followers.

  26. Wow! Using the rug just made everything pop! Love the sunroom and how everything just flows!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Kim, the room looks so pretty with the red rug! It adds such a great pop of color! It's so funny how you and Kelly pick some of the same items, without knowing that the other one has it. Sister telepathy? Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow...love your new decor...that rug really does change the room and makes such a great statement! Your sunroom is gorgeous before and after..love your style!
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  32. HI Kim, Oh my gosh I love that RED RUG! THAT changed the entire look of the room and it is wonderful. Love how it ties in with the red stripe in the grain sack. Wow! I think you need to splurge on one more thing though...hahaha...just one more! How about a little glossy red planter with ivy spilling out of it somewhere? Just a thought...one can never have too much red...it is a happy color. And that describes your room, it is happy. Just walking in it would make you happy! Great job decorating and great post.
    Blessings,
    Debbie

  41. Love the splash of red that your new rug gives the room! I'm on the hunt for the perfect rug for my sunroom, also. In fact, if you ever get bored of working on your sunroom, come on up and help me with mine =) I love the one 'half' of my room, but the other side I've been struggling with. I could use your talent =)

  50. Adore the Red Rug!! Everything in the room is wonderful. You have such a great eye when it comes to painting and changes for your furniture. Love the TV cabinet (but I did LOVE the Yellow). Do you only use Annie Sloan paints for your furniture projects now...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love, love, love the red rug Kim! Your room looks wonderful.

  53. Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one who changes something ... doesn't think it looks quite right ... and changes it yet again. My hubby keeps getting confused about which room he's in! I know what you mean about biting the bullet ... I just did that yesterday and bought 2 new French looking floor mats that I'll be blogging about eventually.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh ... I forgot to say the room looks fantastic! Love the cow print and the red is more you than the neutral rug. You've gotta go with what you love.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The sunroom looks fantastic! Love the pops of red!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The red rug really makes it pop! Very pretty! I told your sister and now you--that candle holder is really great! You have good taste!

  67. Just love the punches of red cause red is my color. Such a pretty room. Like a magazine spread.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Your room continues to look very pretty, Kim. The pop of red looks great, especially with the little bits of red in the grain sacks, upholstery and accessories. You must be so comfortable in your sunroom.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love what you've done to your sun room! Not that anything was wrong with how it was before, but we women like to change things up! I think rearranging and redoing rooms is what gives a home some life. It shouldn't be stagnant! Btw, I also bought that candle holder from wuslu, but I thought it had kind of a scientific,laboratory look(don't know why, just how my brain saw it) so instead of using it for a candle I sat a real birds nest on it. It looks like it is on display to study, like something you'd see in a nature gallery.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Gorgeous Kim~ I love your sunroom and love that red rug too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. LL, I think it has that look, too and what a great idea putting a nest behind the glass. May have to borrow that idea.

    ReplyDelete
  72. It is the room I will sit in on my way through town when I stop in to say hi!! It looks so warm and inviting. I love it!

  75. What a difference the red wool rug makes and it will last forever!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Talk about making a statement. Whatever you paid for that rug it was worth every penny. Love your grain sacks too. I could sit in that room all day and be perfectly happy.

    ReplyDelete
  77. The red rug is perfect for the room!
    Adds so much warmth. Just perfect.

    I just got a very very similar one in chocolate brown for my daughter's room. Love the pattern.

  93. Kim, Love the red rug! It really brightens the room and is perfect, especially for the cooler months. I'm still having "basket envy" over your round basket. :) Great vignette in it, too, with the cow and plant.
    Hope you have a nice Valentine's Day.

  94. What a difference! The rug was worth every penny! Isn't that amazing...the before and after picture could sell another 100 rugs for them...at least!
