Two additions that upped the cozy factor in our living room! from Thrifty Decor Chick


I come to feel like I’ve shared our family members place a ton lately — and I was not arranging to once again these days. BUT I’m so thrilled with how it really is looking with some latest additions. I desired to display you how a great deal modifying out (or just incorporating!) a rug can truly cozy up a house. 

The chairs and rug (from the aged house) we have had in our loved ones space have labored effectively due to the fact we moved in. The chairs are four a long time outdated and have noticed a ton of use. They have been tremendous comfy (you can see them in the pictures under), and seriously roomy. We really do enjoy them. (They are in the basement now).

But the sun did a variety on them at our outdated household and they ended up light terribly. Our canine did some hurt years in the past as properly by “digging” into the cushions. Do your canines do that? 🙂 Thankfully he will not do it significantly anymore. 

Anyway, we have been seeking to change them for at the very least a yr now. We’ve flipped the cushions as much as we can. 🙂 I was going to invest in the precise same kinds, but they usually are not sold anymore. (I even seemed into getting them reupholstered, but the initially estimate I bought was a lot more than I wished to invest.) Getting two similar chairs that aren’t a fortune (AND are cozy) is almost extremely hard. You know how it goes — either you find one thing that could perform when you have no income, or you have the cash and you won’t be able to find nearly anything. 

The other night time I ran into a HomeGoods for the very first time in endlessly and they had been appropriate. there. when I walked in. And to my surprise, so at ease! I texted a pic to my husband and we made the decision to go for it. 

They suit perfectly in there! And they swivel…fundamentally the greatest matter at any time. That is been our preferred aspect so considerably:

Can you see the rug? 😍😍 Extra on that in a moment. 

The rounded form of the new chairs absolutely softens the home much too — it wasn’t right up until I put these in location that I understood how boxy all the things was before. 

Humorous thing is, our pet is NOT delighted with these. Ha! He can’t nestle in on the again/cushion and be on the lookout. He sits on the chair now as an alternative but it is really just not the very same for the weak nugget. The cats on the other hand, still adore them:

Now onto the other major improve in here! I purchased the rug months ago after likely back and forth for what was most likely two months. I was not certain I preferred a bigger dimension and that the darker tones would work perfectly.

I shouldn’t have concerned. It is really an unquestionably beautiful rug!! I am so so so thrilled with it. It really is the Loloi Layla Selection rug in olive and charcoal. It has a ton of colors in it:

Pinks, greens, maroon, even a minor little bit of aqua? It truly is gorgeous. 

(By the way, the rate on these rugs alter normally, so hold a lookout. Ours has presently absent up considerably due to the fact we purchased it, but it was even considerably less when I very first begun seeking.)

Simply because it is really a minimal more substantial than what we had right before, I was capable to pull the sofas more out and thrust the chairs in much more. We have a little bit extra going for walks space behind the chairs now: 

Two swivel chairs facing TV/fireplace

It assists we can sort of flip the chairs into the house — that provides us more place as well. We like that we can flip them to set our toes up on the sofas or what ever.

Our other rug was a lot thicker — this one is very slender. So if you favor some cush in your rug this won’t do the job effectively for you. But if you have little ones or animals I hugely advocate it! It will cover Everything. 😂

In this article are a handful of prior to and afters — with our outdated rug from the aged household (I believe this was from HomeGoods):

I could see changing them out with the seasons — maybe I’ll want the gentle back for spring and summer time? I am not large on changing out larger objects for the seasons, but we however have the lighter rug so we’ll see! 

I really like how it grounds the area. It ties in the dim fireplace wall and developed ins superbly:

It is really been two a long time because we moved in and this place is experience so much like us now. I have mentioned it a million periods and will say it all over again…get your time when it comes to acquiring for/decorating spaces. You will make considerably better choices and will delight in them more time.
