I was at one of my favorite stores, HomeGoods the other day when I spotted this gorgeous rug.
I have been looking for awhile to purchase a new, larger rug for the living room and boom, there it was. I had to buy it because you all know that if you leave anything for ten minutes at HomeGoods, it will be gone! I rarely splurge and I knew that if I left this one behind, I would regret it. I also knew that if I changed my mind and guilt overcame me, I could always return it. That always makes it easier to justify!
Back to the living room! The room is long and two walls have large entryways and one has a fireplace. It makes furniture placement a little tricky. I have been wanting a larger and longer rug that fills the room better and has a classic look. This Safavieh rug is lovely. It is the perfect length, 8′ x 11’02” and the colors are Stone and Blue which coordinate perfectly with my living room walls in Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige and Dining Room in Rainstorm.
I also really like how it flows into the Poised Taupe foyer.
It is faded and looks worn. It was funny when I brought it home and noticed that it is from their Vintage Collection – so me!
I moved the Hungarian Chest into the foyer and purchased a little lamp from Target to place on it.
That has left the living room pretty empty, which is a great feeling as it is basically a clean slate. I am now considering, what type of coffee table? I am thinking classic, round glass. Or, should I go with a round, tufted ottoman? Or, do I stick with my long farmhouse bench as a coffee table? I was thinking of placing it along the wall on the left and placing photographs on it.
I also need chairs. One large comfy one or two matching chairs? Where to place them? What color? Gray or navy? I want to keep the clear ghost chairs in the room and am trying to add more modern touches but I am on a tight budget. Maybe I will stumble across something good at the thrift store. I will keep you posted!
I absolutely love your choice of rug, looks fantastic in your room.
Thank you so much, Cheryl!
LOve the rug. Just bought the same one in grey for my livingroom before the Holidays. Love the worn look in my new rug, that sounds crazy to buy something new looking worn, but hey it matches everything else I love. (For some reason my caps aren’t appearing when I am typing.)
Isn’t it great?! I also love this look. It is so soft and pretty. I’m glad you found one for your home as well. Such a great find!
That truly is the meant to be rug for your living room. no need of any guilt or regret, it’s beautiful!!!
Thanks, Liz! I thought the same thing – meant to be! I’m trying for the no guilt thing though! Cheers!
Love your rug. I have a similar one in my foyer. Question? Why did you rearrange your furniture? I loved the way it looked before….just saying.
Hi! Because I am nuts. Seriously, I change my furniture around like every other month. It’s my strange addiction lol! Thanks, though! I hope you like the newly moved around room when done 🙂

Oooh I could totally see a round tufted ottoman in the center of the rug with fabric that picks up the blue in the rug. Love your ghost chairs in front of the fire. Your the Queen of furniture makeovers, you’ll find just the right piece to place against the wall. The rug is lovely!
The wall color in your foyer- “poised taupe”, in one picture it looks more beige/taupe, in the closer up pics, it looks more like a dark, warm gray. Which is more the actual color that you see in your house and what brand, & sheen ( flat, eggshell) is it?
Hi Amy, the color is Sherwin Williams and the finish is eggshell. If you search “foyer” or look under my tab above “My Home” and “foyer” there are more pics on the color and you can get a better idea. Good luck!
