A Change Will Do You Good

My large, green, shaggy area rug has seen better days. Between failed puppy potty training and general malodor, it was time for a change. A trip to Old Time Pottery yielded both a new rug (thick, fluffy and designed with a subtle neutral stripe) and beautiful floor lamp. When I got home with my new spoils I realized, aghast, that my new rug was much, much smaller than my old one (yes, most people would have measured beforehand, but no matter for this girl). I decided that my fresh and downsized home decor required a revamped living room layout. Behold the results:
