In the Guest Room
We have wood floors
the original 1920 wood floors
that we refinished 17 years ago
And I adore them
And in the guest room . . .
The wood floors are bare . . .
(which actually makes it easy to run a dust mop in there)
But like an outfit needs jewelry
I think a room needs a rug . . .
The finishing touch -- the jewelry for a room
And I've been searching . . .
On eBay, at Estate Sales, Flea Markets and Antique Malls
For it can't be "just a rug"
It needs to be a "perfect rug"!
Yesterday, I was in the city
And on a whim I ran into a Tuesday Morning
And there it was!
A braided rug
(which fits my old house style)
neutral in color
(which I've learned -- keep the main pieces neutral -- you can get creative and colorful
with inexpensive pillows and curtains)
I think it is the finishing touch for the guest room
And I adore it!
