|Calling It Home|
Here are some shots of her new rug. I ordered the Radici Alba 1857 in Denim Blue from RugsUSA as a runner for the area in front of the washer and dryer near the back door. I had it sent to me so I could check it out first; I wanted to make sure that it would be plushy enough and that the colors were right.
This close-up shows the nice level of color in the pattern. I had wanted a dark blue to ground the space. The paler blue inside the leaf keeps it "breezy" and the pale green adds another color for a little variety.
One of my concerns was that the rug hide dog hair well since my parents will always have a dog.
As soon as I laid it down, my old girl decided that was her spot. The rug hid her blonde fur really well, and later when my parents arrived for the weekend, it hid the black fur from their little Buddy.
I was a teensy bit annoyed because RugsUSA charged my credit card but hadn't sent me a tracking message. That is until I arrived home from work one day and saw the rug on my doorstep. I'm hoping the same will be true with the fabric I ordered from Calico last week. I've gotten zip in terms of a confirmation or tracking...
Stay tuned for next week. Will we have fabric?? Will I upload photos??
