New Home Tour | Living Room

December 3, 2016

I seriously wish I could have all of you over to have a cup of coffee with me and listen to my Traditional Christmas Pandora station! Since I can’t, I wanted to show you what my living room in my new house is (currently) looking like! I say “currently”, because you should know that I change up my decor all the time. I have even moved things around since I photographed this! Obviously, the holiday decor is out and it smells like a balsam fir up in here. Enjoy!

I have to talk about my gates! Summer Infant gifted two of these to me for my review and I love them. I have one at the top and bottom of my stairs. Charlie is an adventurer, so I have to keep my house on lock down. I love that these gates have the option of attaching to a banister or a wall. The top gate is attached to two banisters while the bottom one is attached to the wall and a banister. They also look classy and camouflage perfectly into the rest of the decor. I can’t say enough about them!

And now, my favorite part of my living room… my nuLoom rug! Is that crazy? Oh well. I’m in love with a rug. No shame. I had the hardest time deciding what I wanted. We have hardwood floors in this new house and very high ceilings. I wanted something cozy to “warm” up the room a bit, but not necessarily a shag. I also wanted something neutral, and I love the Moroccan patterns that are trending right now. Finally, I ended up with the Moroccan Blythe. I could not be happier! It’s more plush than a flatweave rug, but not as much as a high pile or shag rug. The pattern is absolutely beautiful, and it doesn’t show crumbs easily. It’s the perfect rug for our house! What do you think?

That’s it! I hope you liked looking around. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s home. If you liked anything in particular and want to know where it’s from, just leave a comment or shoot me a message. I am nosy and like to peek at the way other people decorate, so I thought you might be like me! Do you like to see how other people do life? I love it!

    I was debating getting that very same rug for our living room but I couldn’t decide if it was too thin and/or too white for a living space with kids… But so far you love it?! — Lisa | Naptime Chai
