To illustrate, I pulled the rug out of my daughters' room and snapped a picture.
I consider myself a staunch "rug person," but I'm kind of loving it. So light! So summery! The big surprise? The girls love it too. I could hear them upstairs banging and sliding around like they were on a slip n slide or at or a roller rink (says the child of the 70s) and tonight at bed they requested that it stay this way forever. Not one to miss a "teachable moment," I agreed the bare floor could stay...until winter makes us yearn for warmth and softness under foot.
While I was at it, I stripped back the throw pillows and blankets and left things just plain white. Now I'm thinking about ways I can edit back the layers in other spaces to get that seasonal look without spending a dime.
What do you think: easy breezy? Or just unfinished?
