Bring it on, Cranberry Juice

Living room: completed enough for now. I needed a rug, and boy did I luck out.

I came across an ad on craigslist for 20 Flor tiles, at way below retail. I wasn't 100% sure how large a rug I needed, so this seemed like a good way to compromise. I also got way more than I needed. Which means I can spill things on the rug and still be in good shape.

One downside of Flor tiles is that because they're in sections, it's harder to reposition them if you're not quite happy with the placement. How many times did I have to reposition them? Four. If I were a more clever man, I'd have measured and marked out where the rug was supposed to go. I go by instinct and my gut instead, and my gut really resented having to move each tile as I tried to find a suitable arrangement.

Shot from the opposite angle partially because I wanted to show off the other side of the room, partially because I didn't feel like making the bed.

Here's another shot of the trunk. It's all covered in Fedex labels. Kind of makes you wonder what used to be in it.

  1. I reckon your trunk was used for a ventriloquist dummy...

    I hope you find the rug of your dreams one day soon though. A good wool rug is worth waiting and saving for. xx
