In a fit of productivity a few weeks ago, I decided to drag up the sisal rug I stashed in the basement. It's an 8 x 10 I got for a steal from the Company Store and had been using in the dining room. For some reason Burt, who typically has very few accidents, decided it was a nice place to have a restroom break. Though I cleaned it pretty well, there was a telltale ring left that just couldn't be covered. So to the basement it went to eventually be tossed/given away.

Then I remembered I had been seeing some great layered rugs in various mags/blogs and realized the blue binding on my defiled sisal rug matched the tone in the wool dhurrie in the living room. (That rug ALSO experienced a rude welcome by the dog, but the coffee table covers that chew-hole now).

I love it! It gives the living room that layered look that to me makes a room feel purposeful. And I got to reuse an item I thought was done fer'. Always a good thing!

I just stumbled upon your blog and I absolutely love this!! Lime green and teal are some of my favorite color combinations. I just love the chairs and the rug together!!
