I was going to hold off on writing this post because I wanted to find an old photo of myself in an Aztec sweater, but I haven’t made it back to my parents house to search the photo albums. I am pretty sure I once owned a sweater just like this…
This one is from Forever 21, but I had one when I was about 12. I was SO fashion forward, don’t ya think? I probably need to head back to my parent’s house and find my old sweater so I can
sell it on ebay wear it this winter!
So, part of me still likes the Aztec look.
I think I just bought these leggings from Target…
And what about all the beautiful Aztec inspired home decor?
Another part of me is having flash backs to grade school and junior high.
I mean, just check out Zac’s shirt! Looks like that rug! Image via MTVhive.
Which leads me to the point of this post. I am looking for a very inexpensive area rug for our living room. Inexpensive for a few reasons: I am getting cheap in my old age, a one year old + dog + anything nice = disaster, and I’m not completely sure where I am headed with the living room.
So, would you go totally outside the box (for me) and get something “different” like this:
Or just keep it simple and get this in “Silver” (which is more the direction we will probably go in the future) even though you would rather have more of a navy and coral/burnt orange color scheme (this has hints of pink as opposed to coral/orange)…
Kevin said I could do whatever I wanted (gasp), but I am torn. I might go Aztec just for the heck of it. What do you think? Any other places where I can find a large area rug for under $100?
Basically I am just looking for everyone to
tell me to go outside my comfort zone and get the first one be honest.
I can’t decide, which is why our living room has bare wood floors. Burr.
UPDATE: Ok, I posted this less than 24 hours ago and after a few comments I am definitely scratching the Aztec idea! lol. My original thought was I wanted a inexpensive rug for the winter and didn’t care if I only had it 6 months and wouldn’t care if lil’ K smooshed cookies into it. While that is more or less still the case I checked out Rugs USA again and I think I am going to go with one that is neither of the above! I originally wanted something geometric like we have in the dining room, but I didn’t want to spend $400 and/or get the same rug in blue. I think I found the answer and hopefully we get it soon so I can share =)
