I ordered FLOR samples...

October 6, 2010

...and my husband hates them.

Like the lovely Sugar (of Modern Organinc Living) suggested, I've been on the hunt for an area rug (probably 5' x 8')  for our living room.  I've heard so many good things about FLOR, so I decided to peruse their website for some inspiration and came across a few rugs that I really, really loved:


I'm leaning adding toned-down teals or blues in the way of either a rug or throw pillows or both.  I really want a rug with color just because I think a neutral color would be hard to keep clean (especially with two pups that like to roll around in dirt every once and a while).  I'm really happy with FLOR's service- $5 for three samples and it took about five days to arrive in my mailbox, so I wouldn't discount ordering from them.  I also like the idea of having a rug that's more versatile (replacable pieces in the case of stains/ the ability to size down a larger rug to mix things up or relocate it). 

I think the problem here is that my husband tends to be a "big picture" person.  He has a really hard time visualizing the final outcome during the in-between stages (uh, this happened while I was planning our wedding).  Maybe I need to create an inspiration board just for him....

The inspiration board would probably really help him. My husband likes to see a picture of whatever it is I'm going to do -- he usually requests that I mock it up in photoshop first so he can picture the result. It helps a lot!!

I love the Flor tiles but I don't think they'll work in our current home. Someday, perhaps!

My husband has a really hard time visualizing stuff too! With wedding things, I'd show him a picture and say "Picture this but with our colors and without all that crap in the corner." His response: I'd have to see it. I guess it's a guy thing?

I really like those colors you're looking at.

And yay, an excuse for an inspiration board! ;)
