This is the rug that I don't want my chair to fight with. It is really this bright.
And, as I was totally going to post earlier, this is my beloved new couch not fighting with the rug. It is totally neutral and boring, but SO comfortable, and way less hideous than the gray recline-y one that Matt wanted (it literally looked like a dead elephant and was only going to get uglier with age).
So maybe a modern botanical with black and one color out of the rug? Sigh. This was never going to be easy, but I didn't think it would be quite so hard. One color out of the rug could basically be any color in the rainbow, that's how I justified my leafy green accent wall on the facing wall in the entryway. Maybe leafy green and black?
