Crossing It Off the List (Sitting Room Rug)

I know that I've shared my favorite room with you before.

It's the sitting room right off of our dining room that I love so much.

I always knew, however,
 that the area rug I had under the coffee table was too small.

See what I mean?  

I've had a new rug for this room on my 
"to buy" list for over a year.
(Do you have one of these lists too?)
I've been searching forever it seems, 
but could never find the right rug with the right shade of blue.

Low and behold, I walked into Tuesday morning 
a few weeks ago and found it!

Now I realize that this one may be a bit too large,
(oh never the happy medium around here),
but I loved it and the colors (and price) were right.

Doesn't it look much better?

I am so much happier with this larger rug. 
I can cross it off my "to buy" list....finally!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. PERFECT!!
    Gina I love everything about this room too:-)

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Lots of typos ;)

    I love it.
    The previous one was beautiful but this one seems (to me - and what do I know, right?!) exactly the perfect size...

    This room is so welcoming. One feels instantly warm and soothed in it, I bet... just by looking at it I do.

    So nice to buy new things and enjoy, isn't it? Go Gina!

    And I do have those lists... for me and everyone else at home ahahahah Husband has a to-do-never-ending list, kids a mum-suggest lists, even dogs have them but do they care?! No one cares my list I'm afraid but I get a kick with it.

    Enjoy your week and your rug and your wonderful Home,

  4. I don't think it's too big, and the color is like made for that room.

  5. The size is perfect and the color is wonderful. Such a pretty room. Hugs, Marty

  6. Gina, the rug looks perfect and definitely not too big. Someone once told me that the rug should fit a bit under all the furniture to anchor it. The room looks wonderful!
    p.s. I love your Spring chalkboard, too.

  7. Gina, a beautiful rug for a beautiful room! I think it's a perfect fit...I love it!! Enjoy your day, Gail

  8. I think it looks great!
    Sounds like you did well at Tuesday Morning.

    M :)

  9. Wow, that rug looks like it was made for your room!! Perfect colour, shape and pattern.

  10. Love your new rug! Perfect size and color. Beautiful!

  11. It's perfect! Just the right size. I love the color. It looks great with your color scheme. Our Tuesday Morning closed recently. I loved shopping there too :-(

  12. Gina I love it. I think it's the perfect size. We all have those lists.

  13. Personally? I think the new rug is the perfect size. I like it when the front legs of furniture sits on a rug. I love the colors in the rug, too. I think its a keeper!

  14. I don't think it is to large at all and the color is perfect. You have been on the hunt, but look it came to you!


  15. I do not think it's too large at all, and I LOVE the colors in that room, especially with the rug. I am pretty sure I've already pinned that room because I love it, but I pinned it again just in case. So very pretty and very much the look I'm working on for my den.

  16. I think your new rug is gorgeous, perfect for the space! Love that little blue dresser too:)

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, it was so nice to see your pretty face in the comments:) It's been far too long since I've visited here! Have a wonderful day:)

  17. It looks like it was made for your spot....just perfect. I love the style of the rug and it's not a bit too big...I love it.

  18. THAT is beautiful G. Such a pretty shade of blue. Rugs (at the right price) are so hard to find. Often so busy and ornate. This one is just, pretty!

  19. Great find Gina!
    Looks like it was made to go with that room, and your existing furniture.


  20. Your new rug couldn't be any more perfect! Your patience paid off.

    Having a give away in honor of the first day of spring. Come by if you can. :)

  21. Its perfect!! I love the color and how well it goes with your room Gina. I have a few spots in our house that are needing some area rugs and I just haven't found the right one yet......I will know it when I see it though!

  22. The bigger, the better. Such a beautiful rug and I am sure you feel so cozy and comfortable in this room. Enjoy your weekend.
