Small things can make a huge difference: 1 rug and 3 cushions
This was our living room last week . . .
And this is what it looks like now . . .
One rug and three cushions and everything feels different. I hadn’t planned to do this, but never really loved the striped rug. And then I stumbled across this amazing raspberry Madeline Weinrib carpet on sale. The room is totally transformed and I absolutely love it. The raspberry rug not only has added an element of surprise and playfulness, the room also feels much bigger. The stripes emphasised the length of the space and unwittingly created a feeling that this was merely a passage to the rest of the house. Now, I love spending time being here.
Our bathroom has also undergone a radical transformation from clinical white to a dramatic and moody dark deep grey. I’ll post some photos tomorrow.
In the meantime, it is kinda interesting to reflect upon how, in life in general, small things can really make a huge difference.
