You all know I love a good home decor makeover. Some may say it’s my addiction. Since we’ve lived in our house, the living room has been through many transformations. I am always tweaking my style. I’ve added a new addition to the living room and I’m in LOVE! Before I reveal what it is, here is a recap of all of what my living room has been through in the past 5 years.

I knew I wanted to go with an indoor/outdoor rug again since I had such a good experience with my last one. I wanted to get away from anything brown since my living room has transitioned into more cool gray tones.
Here are some of the ones I considered:
And just for dramatic purposes. Here is the living room BEFORE:
And here it is AFTER!
