Home Decor Update (Open Concept Floor Plan)

It is really, really hot here now. So each day, we are either in the pool or we are looking for places with cold air conditioning. Which for some reason has given me the 'decor bug' again. I think when you "stop and sit", you tend to see things you want to update :)

Here is the 'AFTER'. Can you spot the update in this room? 
And it was on a 'stop and sit' kind of day that I realized how my once-beautiful natural fiber rug in the dining room had begun to disintegrate. I kept trimming and trimming the loose loops, but it seemed that I was loosing a battle with the rug. And if I kept at, eventually it would shrink from a 6x9 rug to a 3x5. So I began shopping around to find a replacement, an affordable replacement.

My sad rug was falling apart! 
On top of that, I was on the hunt for a metallic end table for my family room. I wanted to open up the space on the side of the couch a bit more and add some height. The current end table was a hand-me-down and I was ready for a bit of change.
The small table to the side of the couch, imaging something metallic there. 
Which brings me back to the whole 'find cool air conditioning' place to hang out... shopping is the perfect activity for a hot, hot day. And while I was beating the heat, I found this beautfiul rug at World Market. And even better it was on sale! On top of that I found a pretty metallic round side table there too- also on sale!

Here is how it all turned out. Little changes make a big difference.



And the side table in the family room...


Since my floor plan is open concept, all the rooms flow together. Which means that when I update the decor in one room, I get to enjoy it from another room :) And it also means that the decor that is one room has got to 'work' with the decor in the next room. I think the metallic table is a nice touch to the other colors and textures in my home.

Eden Side Table- on sale for $49

Oh and I also went out to the Nebraska Furniture Mart to look around (and hide from the heat). Lots of good things out there. If you are close by, go check it out. If you are far away, I would preview it online first to see if they have what you are looking for. I will say, I was surprised that they had a lot of "Restoration Hardware" style furniture along with traditional, modern etc. Also their furniture prices seemed great, but the accessories seemed a little high priced to me. I didn't buy anything that day --but I saw lots of things that I really liked :)

Nebraska Furniture Mart- it's big! 
These would look pretty on a dining room table.  
I thought this table and chair set were so chic. 
I would love this in my dining room. The mirrored doors are perfection. 
This coffee table and rug-- so pretty! 
Hope you are beating the heat and enjoying some 'stop and sit' time in your home!
