Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A Small Change

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!

I love braided rugs and perfect with the room...I have my cedar chest at the end of the bed also.

I think I admire your home more than any other. I love your taste in decor. The rug does add the perfect finishing touch.

I agree! That is perfect for this room. I would love to be a guest there because of all your bookshelves within easy reach! :)
