Usually people save their home improvements for springtime. Not, me. My favorite time for home improvements is basically any time of the year. This time, I chose Fall. I suffer from a seasonal depressive disorder, and I knew that it was important to at least make a change to help prevent and keep my symptoms at bay. I had been noticing that my living room was feeling really drab and dreary, and that is where I spend a lot of my time.
I had followed the trend of barn red walls, which was popular a few years back. What was I thinking? Since the living room is the focal point of the home, why not make it bright and cheerful rather than dark and depressing? Look at the picture of my living room. (Below.)
Besides the cute critters in the photo, is there anything uplifting and happy about these hues? The answer is no! (Also, please excuse the clutter!) My living room is definitely lived in!
In looking at the color scheme in this photo, I only see dreariness. Is that even a word? It doesn't take much to brighten up a room! I knew I wanted to do something simple, yet stunning, and so I decided to make changes with a bit of paint and a beautiful new rug.
I had been long admiring the most beautiful rug I had ever laid my eyes upon. It was at my local Costco. I knew that I had to have it. It is a Gertmenian luxury shag rug with a trellis design.
Gertmenian makes rugs for home décor, for outdoors, for kids décor, and for kids play and education. Their entire focus is rugs, and they have been supplying their beautiful rugs for over 110 years.
The company was established in the United States in 1896. It has been owned by one family since, and it is now directed by the great grandson of the founder. Their entire team consists of professionals in design, development, manufacture and distribution. You can find their beautiful rugs in Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, Kohl’s, Lowe’s, Bed Bath and Beyond, Toys’R’Us, Costco, Sams Club, and many others.
After finally getting my living room painted in lighter colors, I happily laid down my rug. To say that it transformed my living room is an understatement.
It is luxurious and plush
Even my kitty agrees
My Gertmenian rug not only brightens my living room, it also adds a touch of elegance (please excuse the clutter, however it IS a living room!)
From simply a nice paint job and this gorgeous rug from Gertmenian, my living room has been transformed into a happy place that my family enjoys hanging out in. The rug is made of the highest quality material, and does not show dirt or stains. It feels like heaven on the bare feet, and invites you to lay on it to watch a movie. It is soft, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Just a good vacuuming once a week, and it continues to look showroom perfect.
My living room now looks and feels so much brighter and happier. My entire family loves hanging out in the living room and everyone tends to find themselves lying on the rug to watch movies. It is so cushiony and comfortable. I have never experienced such a fine rug before! It makes all the difference in the look and feel of my living room, and makes my house feel more like a home.
