Hey guys! So you remember how I got all smitten with that rug a few weeks back? If you remember, I wasn't exactly sold on it - I knew I was just crushing on it. Usually if there is something that I think looks really great, and costs a little bit of cheddar (that's still super cool to say, right?) I usually just wait it out. Why? I wait to see if I really do love it, if I just can't stop thinking about it, if it's the only thing I can imagine in the space, and then if I still love it months down the road we budget for it, and then buy it.
In this situation I did not do that. I had been wanting to add bits of salmon and coral to the room, but I couldn't really come up with a solution for the most effective way of doing it. I thought about adding coral pillows on the sofa that I newly reupholstered, but coral against the navy sofa was a lot of color in one very specific place. The coral needed to be part of the room, not part of the couch, you feel me? I'm pretty sure that the Torres rug has been available at West Elm for awhile, the thing is, I never needed a coral rug, so I never noticed it. Then one day I was flipping through my new catalog, and wham, there it was, The Torres Kilim rug in "Guava".
So I thought about it, I blogged about it, and then I realized it was on sale. I called West Elm to see what their return policy was on rugs, I found out I could return it to the store. If I ordered it the worst possible thing that could happen would be that I just didn't like the rug.
So I ordered it, just Get the Scoop [...]
