I Just Can't Quit You

I know. I have sort of an obsession/freakish fixation with and on my rug. And I know I've already waxed poetic on this subject. But, in my defense, the state of my rug plagues me in the way I thought only mini-blinds could plague me. But, my quandary is that I both love my rug and hate it. I just can't quit it. I just can't. Let's examine why I love my rug. It is very bright. My apartment is very white, and having a colorful focal point really pulls the whole room together. It is pretty, too. It is a lovely woven Anthropologie purchase that I got at a terrific price. Now, let's talk about why I hate my rug. It will not lie flat. It is so dang stubborn. I cannot blame this on the rug itself. To recap, the rug is on top of wall-to-wall carpeting, which I also don't really like, but that isn't going anywhere anytime soon. I previously wrote about layering rugs, and I keep coming back to this notion. I have come across two pictures recently (Jamie Meares's home and Erin Gates's home) that reignited my desire to get my layer on. My only hesitation is whether three rugs on top of each other is a little excessive (because we are starting with a rug as the base).

Basically, the spring cleaning bug and the potential demise of my rug have me thinking about possibilities for changing up the living room. The quickest and easiest way to do that? Change the pillow covers! Here are a few I think might make for a lovely spring makeover.
