I have been trying to work with the furniture I have in this new home, and only fill in with as few new pieces as possible. So far this room is working out well with what I had. The same furniture I had in my family room before works out great for this room, just a little different configuration. I did add the basket trunk as a coffee table. My previous coffee table was way too big for this space.
We replaced the original carpet and linoleum downstairs with this beautiful new flooring and I love it. Perfect for heavy traffic areas like the family room, kitchen and laundry room. It is NuCore Gunstock Oak Laminate from Floor & Decor. This gives the space some warmth as a base for my furniture.
My favorite new addition to this room is this gorgeous Vintage Turkish Rug. When Unique Rugs allowed me to pick out a rug as a giveaway for one of you, they also allowed me to select a rug for my home too.
I chose this Beige Overdyed Heritage Rug. You can't even imagine how gorgeous this is in person. The detail and craftmanship and color are exquisite. It is the perfect piece to help pull this room together.

For now this is a really comfortable space for us to relax and watch tv, have our morning coffee or read. I can't thank Unique Rugs enough for this gorgeous statement rug. It totally makes the room and what a fabulous addition to my home.

Now I need your help - Any ideas about window treatments? I am not a big fan of the wood tone blinds in the breakfast area or the family room. However they are brand new and really nice plus my budget is shot, so I think they have to stay for a while. With that said, it just seems like the Breakfast and Family rooms need something.
Thanks to everyone who entered my Vintage Overdyed Area Rug Giveaway. I am so glad a lot of you really loved it. You can see more of these types of rugs at Unique Rugs. I can't thank them enough for this beautiful rug they donated for this giveaway. Now for THE WINNER - -
