Look what finally arrived! It’s pretty cool to have my piano in my house again – I’ve been picking tunes out all day. And I’m really looking forward to playing Christmas carols in a few weeks (and may have placed my Christmas sheet music at the top of the pile already).
Forget politics, I’m talking home decor-ics!
The rug I chose for our piano corner has arrived. But now I can’t decide which side should be “up.” Technically, there’s a “right” side and a “wrong” side, but in my opinion, it works either way.
Which do you like best?
[Please try your best to imagine an oak-colored piano sitting atop the rug!]
As mentioned in my List-O-Mania post, one “to-do” item is to have my piano moved from my parent’s house to our house.
But before we can do that, we need a rug to go underneath it.
I was originally planning to bind a leftover swatch of our carpeting. I figured this would do a good enough job. And it would be free. (well sort of; the carpet would be free but we’d still have to pay to have it bound). But the more I thought about it, the more I doubted that a carpet swatch was the way to go. Our carpeting is kind of a non-descript oatmeal-y color (as you can see above on the stairs). Perfectly neutral for the rest of our home, but maybe the piano deserves more pizzazz.
But now I was stumped. What type of rug should I look for? What would go best with the room? How could we add a little pop of color or pattern without overwhelming the rest of the room?
Until one day, when I found this beauty in a Land of Nod catalogue!
It’s the perfect size (4′ x 6′).
… and the kicker…
And it’s on it’s way to our house now! FedEx – please get my little lavender beauty here safe and sound!
