color my world challenge {decor week}


Last Tuesday I told you guys about the Color My World Challenge... and how over the next few weeks I will be incorporating mustard yellow into our home.

Well... this week is decor week. We were challenged to use our color in some type of home decor item. And we went all out over at our house with a beautiful wool area rug. I.am.in.love.with.this.rug.

We actually kind of cheated... we purchased this rug about a week before I even know the Color My World Challenge even existed... but this rug was the clencher for the mustard yellow color selection. We had been living rug-less ever since we moved into our new rental 9 months ago. Here is what we were working with before...
Oh... so you've noticed a couple of other changes, have you?? I promise a living room update post soon. But in the meantime here's what we are working with now... inspiration rug and all...

What about you? Are you participating in the Color My World Challenge? Have you been making any color changes in your home? Be sure to visit some of the other bloggers listed below to see what color changes they are making in their own home...

I'm absolutely loving that rug, and all your other changes too! I wouldn't have recognized it as the same space!

That rug is beautiful. Where did you get it? It's always so hard to find rugs, especially at a decent price point (not sure if yours is, but just saying).

I am drooling over that rug, what a beauty! That looks amazing in your living room with the cart coffee table and your new couch! Nice job!

Cool Julia! Even though I was actually IN your living room, I just now realized that the coffee tables are two totally different tables. Did you pick this one up at the cool antique store you showed us?? Clever!

Connie @ Sensible-Redesign said...
