We're in the final steps of purchasing our home and we're antsy to get moving in.
But before we move all our belongings into this big, empty space I am hoping to have new carpet installed. Now understand that I am a hardwood floor kinda gal, but we're dealing with some uneven flooring issues under the current carpeting and I really don't want to spend a fortune to fix it. Thus, we've been shopping around for some good carpet to install.
The future nursery.
(Notice the old, teal carpeting.)
The PINK guestroom! :)
The back hallway from the bedrooms to the kitchen has a little alcove I would love to turn into a reading nook.
The carpet will be installed in the dining/living room, bedroom hallway, master bedroom, nursery, reading nook hallway, guest room and maybe even the den. That's a LOT of carpet for a girl who isn't a fan of carpet. So I've been looking at low piling carpet thats easy maintenance but can withstand heavy traffic (without getting into commercial carpeting). I also don't want different carpet throughout the house. I like the idea of keeping the carpet consistent, so I wanted to choose a color that would coordinate with all these spaces.
So our round up thus far is:
Martha Stewart Living - Rosecliff in Snail Shell
Martha Stewart Living - Rosecliff in Natural Twine
Mohawk - Classic Row in Coir
Mohawk - Desert Rhapsody in Wild Honey
Mohawk - Restful Retreat in Quarry
Shaw - Leavitt in Buckskin
As you can see I am drawn towards carpeting that has a similar look to natural rugs, like sisal or jute. I also think a light brown would be a good transitional color for all the spaces.
I have plans to start putting together some inspiration boards for the nursery, so stay posted!
