a splash of color

Indigo Stripe Dhurrie Rug

So for those of you who have never been to our apartment we have an amazingly comfortable couch that we are so very grateful to my parents for! I grew up with this couch and it is still in wonderful shape and we are so thankful for it. The only thing is I've been having a hard time bringing color into our living room because of the color of the couch which is a dark forest green. So I'm flipping through a new "Summer Sale" Pottery Barn catalog yesterday and I come across a beautiful rug with blues, tans and low and behold the exact green of our couch! This never happens....and it's on sale! So I call and have the last one put on hold at the mall and when my sweet husband got home we went and got it! It was one of the quickest purchases I've ever made and I'm so happy we did. Thankfully I was able to use some PB gift cards I've been saving (thank you aunt jane) so it wasn't much at all:) We are very happy with the new addition to our living room!

That is exciting! I have to be honest, I've never been a fan of dark green, but I hardly even noticed that was the color of your couch. It looks great with all the colors around it and with the other colors in that rug make it look great! Normally, people pair dark green with like a dark burgandy and then it just starts looking to stiff and formal for me. You pulled it together beautifully!
