Well, my giddiness about the upcoming new carpet wasn’t undeserved. …
I LOVE IT.
Worth every month and year of the wait.
We still have lots of boxes to put away in the master bedroom and Rene’s room, so I didn’t want to snap pics there yet. (Plus I’m without my regular camera — gah! I feel like I’m without my left arm!) But anyway, here’s a shot with my lame cell-phone camera looking down the hallway toward Nate’s room:
It’s a cream-color carpet with brown specs in it (to hide dirt!). It’s a slight “shag” (as Superman calls it) (… but really it’s a “frieze”). It goes surprisingly well in Nate’s steel-blue room, as well as in the rest of the upstairs rooms, which all have butterscotch-colored walls a little lighter than that hallway wall in the picture.
I might not even mind vacuuming for a little while! : )
Oh its so pretty! And it goes really well with the walls. Your house looks so big! Very cool. I like the color of your hallway.
Tricia — Noooooo, our house is not big at all! We call it The Smallest House in the Universe because that’s what it feels like most of the time. 🙂 But we love it anyway! Thanks for the compliment on hallway color — I still love that color. It makes the whole house (because I used it all over) look sort of golden and peaceful in most light. I still love it.
Hi, M.!!!! Thank you! 🙂
Cozy and warm is the feeling I always get at your house. And contemporary. Enjoy your new carpet. I’m sure you’ll all be running barefoot thru the halls…
Thanks, Barbara! “Cozy and warm” is what I’m going for! 😉
Still catching up on your blog posts. 🙂 Love you carpet!! And the wall color. Hope you were careful of the carpet fuzz..lol…omg that stuff is the worst part of new carpet..can clog up the vacuum so fast. ha ha.
I hope after 2 years you are still loving it!!!
Ha, ha — YES, Phyllis, after 2 years we are still loving it! In fact, we’re just having it professionally cleaned this week and “fluffed up” before the holidays! But generally, it has done its job of hiding dirt very well, and I still love the color. 🙂
