On The Floor

One of the jobs I have been working on for the past 4 years is revamping a family home. The lovely couple have pretty much moved into the “empty nester” category with their youngest heading off to university, outside Sydney, at the beginning of last year.

We’ve transformed the house in every way, except structurally and are now up to the fun part of putting in the new furnishings.

Family Room before

The new leather lounge has gone in and we have bought some new artwork.

This oil painting by Velia Newman will sit on the family room wall

Last week we looked at some rugs and chose the following three from Designer Rugs.

Floral Sketch

Floral Sketch

This is the right size – 2m x 3m.

Flame Tree

The pattern will get lost once we put a coffee table on top.


The background colour could be changed to a warmer off white to blend in better with the tiles and sofa.

We don’t want the rug to detract from the artwork but it must complement it.

  1. Hi Jennifer,

    I just wanted to say thank you for all your lovely comments on our studio98 blog, it was a pitty you couldn’t make our latest event so we could have met you.
    Hope you had a lovely time at the Gold Coast!


  2. I love the last one because even tho it’s called “Atoms” it looks like dandelions. I’m torn though because I think the pattern and color of the second choice may actually look best in the room but I wish it was borderless like the last.
    Good luck with your project! And thanks for stopping by today!
