Well, our little detour into non-nursery land was rather short lived… But only because the Dwell Studio Zebra Rug we registered for (given to us as a shower gift from our uber stylish family friend Renee- no, seriously, she is a movie wardrobe stylist) arrived last night!
I LOVE this rug because it’s wool, not one of those awful chemical smelling fake olefin or whatever other synthetic fiber stuff that gives me an instant headache.
Plus, even though the colors are NOT as picture on target.com (as many reviewers pointed out) they turned out just as I hoped they would - much softer and a perfect match for our color scheme. In fact the darker brown color is remarkably close to the brown of the tree in the monkey mural!
And now for your viewing pleasure:
Most importantly, sammy gives the rug her stamp of approval:
The overall dimensions were actually bigger than I expected based on the reviews, but it works. The hardwood floors in this room somehow got really scratched up, so the extra coverage is fine even though smaller would have been ok too.
Now I just have to finish the mobile and I’ll post a whole “nursery tour” and then we can forever be done with the nursery posts!
