Wisteria at Ikea Prices !!

It is no secret in blog land that I love stripes.

You can see from my dining room and kitchen that I truly love stripes.

I use to have a blue and white ticking striped sofa, but when it became worn I purchased a floral sofa in a beautiful natural linen. It is a wonderful fabric but to be honest it has never quite suited me.

I am still in the market for my ticking sofa, but right now it is just not in the cards for me. So I have been looking for ways to freshen up my family room a bit and make it feel more like me!!

I had a wonderful conversation with my friend Delores from Vignette designs and she said, “Kathysue, I know you don’t want to hear this, but I think you just need to embrace your floral sofa!” She was right on both counts.

We talked further and she mentioned changing out the rug. I told her I had plans to do so if and when I got the ticking sofa. She suggested, "why don’t you get a rug now that would work with both this sofa and the ticking." She reminded me of how much I love stripes. So, the search began. I did not find one that was quite right so I quit looking.

Until today!!! You know how you get the little pop-up advertisements on your screen? Well, one came up from Wisteria so I started browsing.

I saw that they were having a sale with huge markdowns so I looked in the rug section and there it was!!!!

wisteria striped rug for family room (600x616)
I could not believe the price it was originally $899 marked down 70% to $269.70 for a 9X12 cotton dhurrie rug. I was stunned!!  I emailed Delores and finally could not stand it any more and just called her to share the news!!!

The rug has been ordered and I am so excited!! Now my fingers are crossed in hopes that the description is true:
Bring a bit of spring indoors with this cheery, apple green striped cotton dhurrie. It’s the perfect way to brighten any room.
