Here´s the thing: During summer, I rarely even think about any interior design projects. There are enough projects in the garden to keep me busy. But now that we spend a lot more time inside the house, I feel the urge to change and improve things again! I have a few projects lined up already but I think the front rooms of our house (living and dining room) will mostly remain untouched. I love them just as they are.
There was one thing we needed to do something about though: The rugs. They were filthy. With twenty paws in the house, that happens. I don´t spend too much money on rugs in the first place because I know that sooner or later, we will need to replace them. I am aware there are people out there who clean rugs professionally, and that other solutions and remedies exist, but believe me: After a few years in our house, a rug is beyond cleaning. So, long story short, we got new rugs for the dining and living room. And since I loved our jute rug in the dining room so much (you can read all about it here), I replaced it like for like. I know, adventurous!
I was a leeetle more adventurous in the living room, but not much. You may remember that we had a gray "knitted" wool number in here (this one), which we both really liked... but the woven structure was impossible to keep clean. So I got this one which is really lovely too. I mean, it´s not that it looks wildly different, but I think it´s a little harder-wearing. Both rugs are from Urbanara by the way (no this is not a sponsored post, I just happen to like their stuff).
So essentially this is a post about how I paid a lot of money and things still look the same. Ha! But it´s so much cleaner looking around here. You´ll have to believe me.
