I’ve always been drawn to rooms without rugs. When we first refinished the floors, I avoided rugs entirely. Slowly though, I came to see them as a new way to incorporate pattern and color into the space. Lately though, I’ve been pinning more images like the one above. Rooms with bare floors are calling to me.
Although perhaps it’s just the idea of not constantly battling rug stains with all the little feet in and out who often don’t really stay long enough to bother taking off shoes. Or are running out the door with snacks that inevitably get spilled and then ground in before I see them.
So, today I experimented.
The front room with its current rug.
Now I can’t decide which I prefer. Or if I’ll want a rug back in a couple of months once things cool off. Or if I just want a different rug (yes, yes I do.). Rug opinionated readers – go.
