Before updating our map chest, we had mostly gray pillows, throws, and accents in our sitting room. Meanwhile, we had some sea glass green pillows, throws, & accents in our family room. After updating the map chest though, I started playing around, and liked the look of adding more green in the sitting room, so I borrowed a couple of pillows & the throw from our family room.
So, we are currently changing some things up in our family room & adding some navy (most of which we already owned), which seems to already be “grounding” that larger room much better. In the meantime, though, I had taken pictures of our family room, so I thought I’d share those today and then I’ll share the navy additions in a later post.
I love layering rugs. I tried it on a whim one day, and now I can’t imagine it any other way in here. I love the texture that the jute/wool rug on bottom adds and I love the color and detail that the wool rug on top provides.
And here’s our hat wall, which is just inside the family room as you come off of the entryway.
We actually moved the green wool rug (the top rug in the pictures above) into our entryway, and brought the navy & cream striped rug from the entryway into the family room. Technically, the sitting room is the first room off of the entryway, and so having the sea glass green in the entryway & sitting room seems to have improved the flow of our home quite a bit. It’s funny the difference that small tweaks can make, isn’t it?
Have a wonderful day!
