indoor rugsIs your home where you want it to be?

I can’t deny it, mine isn’t where I want it to be yet but, I’m happy it is not where it used to be. Over the past years, it has gone through so many changes. If it had a mouth I’m sure it would have expressed how tired it was of me. Lol! From being a hoarder to embracing a minimalistic setting feels good.

Every year comes with some sort of weird desire to subtract or add something in my home. Last year I wanted to change from carpet to a wooden flooring but, it didn’t come to fruition. To compensate for that, bits and bobs were added here and there. -From indoor plants, centerpieces, painting and adding some new rugs. As you can see from the above image, my wallpaper is due for an update too. Lol! The changes never stop.

When Twinkledeals asked to collaborate, I used the opportunity to order this colourful stripe velvet rug for my bedroom. I don’t want to sound like a broken record and go into my excitement about stripes and colours but, these are the same reasons why I was drawn to this rug. For some reason I didn’t notice the word ‘velvet’ in the description when ordering so I was really surprised when it arrived. It’s absolutely soft, smooth and so lovely. I love it! The only downside for me is that, I wish it was a bit bigger.

The idea was to use this as a base for a reading/medication corner I wanted to create in a small space in my bedroom but, my son loved it so much that he’s taken it for his bedroom. The fun colours surely makes this rug perfect for kids room anyway. I’ve had to get myself another rug for my corner. What we do as parents huh!? Ha!interior designTwinkledeals*DISCLAIMER: Got this carpet as part of a wishlist collabo but, all opinions are mine. I’m not paid whether you buy it or not.*

What do you think of this rug? 

Have a lovely weekend in advance Beauties.


Much Love!

    No, my home is not where I want it to be. I have a lot of decisions to make and work to do (and maintenance, replacing very worn out furnishings and cleaning).
    Your home looks tastefully decorated and beautiful.
    The rainbow of velvet stripes of that rug from Twinkledeals looks very attractive. I also love the black and orange OOTD you were wearing in the photo above! Both you and your outfit look fabulous.

    • March 16, 2018 / 8:24 pm

      I’m sure and hope it gets there soon. Gradually!
      Good to hear that and thanks so much. Appreciate your support each day. 🙂

    Haha we always get the itch to downsize and then redecorate when the seasons change. I love how bright this rug is. It looks perfect on your gorgeous bright floors. Yay spring!

    We are house hunting so while there are many improvements we could make to our current place, we haven’t yet! Hopefully we will find a new place soon.

    Hope you are having a good weekend 🙂 We are having a quiet one to recover from our busy week!

    I guess having constant changes on your home has a very nice feeling. You can change it from time to time depending on your mood. Having colorful rugs will be pretty nice.
