Adding Textiles

In my humble opinion, nothing makes a bigger change in a space than adding Textiles.



Our Breakfast Nook is the busiest little corner of our home.
 Until recently, it was seriously lacking a personality:


(Before)


I've always avoided fabrics there for obvious reasons.


(Before)


I decided it was time to take my own advice.  
I found a practical rug at Target for a reasonable price.




It's dark enough to hide stains and synthetic so, it's easy to clean.





The drapes were updated in my last post, the chandy got some new duds,




and the trim was spruced up with a fresh coat of paint.




Thanks for visiting.

P.S. I was amazed at the rug selection at Target.com. 
 I had no idea...if you haven't checked it out, you must.

  7. Beautiful! I was wondering what your paint color was on your walls. Would you mind posting where you got it from and the name?
    Thanks!

  8. I have a question about your table and chairs. :) Did you buy them that creamy color, or did you paint them? I am about to re-do my table and chairs and just wondered if you'd done yours. I like the creamy color of yours and wondered what it was. :)
    LOVE your drapes! Great idea!
