I got a small metamorphosis in our den and here's why. Our dear daughter Alexandra just moved to the city our other daughter Sofia and the g'girls live. This city has a hot climate all year round..like hot and hotter! In Alexandra' new apartment, and because of the warm weather, she thinks she doesn't want any rugs, not even areal rugs. I think she's right, besides the fact she wants to decorate it a little more on the modern, or go more eclectic, which is great I think , for a young woman.
She decided to send us this gorgeous Belgium silk rug she had in her previous apartment . She thought it would go nice with our den's yellow couches and black and white marble floor. Alejandro and I are totally thrilled with it, it looks perfect and the room looks so much more elegant! Our den and living room are next to each other, so when we have lots of guests, they can all be very close to each other and mingle better. Therefore, I like it that it's more elegant and gives also the impression that it's larger.
Take a look, hope you like it.
|This silk Belgium rug it's actually a soft yellow and black, but the pictures don't really show it, not in the day pics or the night ones, but believe me, the rug is in a soft yellow and looks great with the yellow couches and chairs here.|
|Here it is with the coffee table, it stil looks great.|
|Since this is a bigger rug than the old one, the room looks larger, as it's fitting the floor's width in full.|
|Here it seems like you can see more of the soft yellow in the rug next to the chairs.|
|I love the center medallion, although the coffee table covers it somewhat.|
|The Before wool rug was smaller and I would have not changed it, but after this gorgeous present we "inherited" from sweet daughter Alexandra, we're happier.|
|At your far left you can see a little of the yellow in the rug.|
|The four corners of the rug looks like this. Notice a little of the black insets and white marble floors, so the rug looks pretty against it, as the floor has totally more white.|
|We are really so happy with how it looks and the silk is very shiny and elegant in real life..besides the fact that you can see the light yellow better too, of course.|
Thank you my sweet, sweet and generous friends for all the wonderful comments you leave me..they always put a smile on my face!
