hot - or not?

My family is very outspoken.
Today I wanted to see how this carpet (which actually is not a carpet, but a thick, woven curtain on top of a cheap carpet) might look like for a design project I'm working on. There were not many positive remarks from my family...(ahhm, actually they were 100% negative ;).
What do you think?

While clever on your part to come up with the idea of the woven throw over a rug-- just to test it; And, blues are coming back in popularity. I don't much care for it. But, I've not cared much for the chevron that is popular right now either.

Your's reminds me of a rug I had years ago-- with blues and pinks and tans, but resembled the Mid-Western Arizona (american Indian) take on decorating. I don't miss it.

I'm supposing you want honesty :)

I do like the blue with the red and white though--

Pat, I want honesty. :) I thought of using sprayglue to attach it to the carpet under and hotglue it aroung the edges and than spray the top with scotchguard... we'll see.

Blått er jo inn som bare det, tror det kommmer til å passe inn i prosjektet ditt eg :-)

I really like it! But I am loving Chevron right now, and I also think it brings out the other blues in the room. It also looks like it would hide dirt well. But if your family doesn't like it then I'd probably not keep it.

When I saw the picture of your room for Constitution Day, I realized what I didn't like of the new rug. It's very heavy and your room is otherwise filled with joyous brightness. I don't think the design is the issue...I think it's the dusky colors. Maybe if it was light blue and white or something of that nature I would like it better....and would be a better representation of how I see your lovely home. (You asked for honesty, girlie. :-/)
