Don’t get me wrong, I’d take sterile over the before photo any day. Because seriously:
We got the extra long curtain rod at Ikea for $5 and picked up the curtain clips there, too. So hanging the two tapestries from Urban Outfitters that you all voted on was a breeze. I actually didn’t even hem them because I don’t mind a little pooling at the bottom. By making the curtains extend the entire length of the wall, as as high as we could–it really makes the room look a lot larger–not to mention, it let’s the curtains be the look-at-me textile they are.
When it came time to lay the FLOR tiles, I found the center of the room and laid my first square right there–making sure it wasn’t crooked at all. Then I started building out until I had a plus sign (this area rug is designed to be square) to make sure I liked where the ends landed. After a few tweaks the the right a half inch (really) I filled in the rest of the carpet.
I rotated the squares to make a sa-weet design. Zig-zags, diamonds, large-squarish-tunnels. I’m a fan of the neutral color and surprise designs when you look a little closer and longer.
Next up, I suppose we should get some furniture in here, don’t ya think? Guess I better dig my desk out of the garage.
Before you skip away, let’s take a look at a before and currently and admire all of the amazing decisions you have made:
