Ever since we moved in a whole year ago now (!) I haven’t been happy with the rug that we had in the playroom. The rug was fine, it was cute, the rug was practical and bright for the kids play area…but…the rug was never meant for that space. It was from Harper’s bedroom in Camperdown. It was too small. It just was never quite right. So where was my perfect rug? From here of course except that they don’t ship their rugs to Australia. Bastards. So I have been searching and searching and wasn’t quite ready for fork out the thousands of bucks it appears you need to to get something just a little bit cool.
Friday when we were in IKEA I looked and looked and pondered and wondered in the rug section all the while Harper screamed and Daisy crawled along the floor. I had been looking at this rug for some time – the boldness of it took my fancy and the size was about right for the space…but I was worried about it being so thin that it would slip and slide all over the place. But. I got it in the end because of the screaming children, the price, and the fact that I could make it work somewhere else in the house if it didn’t work there.
But it does. I think. Kind of? Maybe?
Either way it’s there for now and it can be replaced down the track when “the” one comes along. I ask you though, where are all the fabulous rugs in Australia? Do you know?
