It’s here, it’s here!

The Beibs is off the hook.

Our kitchen runner arrived yesterday! (it still needs to flatten out a bit from the packing process)

Now, let me zoom out and tell you something…I’m not sure how I feel about it.

I can explain. I think the pattern is a larger scale than I expected, so it’s overwhelming me a little and making the runner itself appear larger. I knew how big it would be because I measured and marked it out on the floor, but I think the pattern is screaming HEY I’M A LARGE RUNNER! Though it’s much better than our previous choice.

The wool is a tad scratchy, but I think that will help it be a little more durable and wear nicely in such a high traffic area.

It’s also a nice flat weave like we wanted, though we’re going to need a rug pad. I’ve almost gone on a few magic carpet rides of my own already.

But I think it’s just one of those drastic changes I just need to get used to. Like how when we painted the office ceiling dark gray, we swore it was an awful mistake, but after a day, we loved it. What I do like about the larger scale pattern is that our mini-subway tiles are small and more intricate as a pattern, so the runner offers something totally different.

Plus the cats already love it, hopefully I will love it too in a few days!

ps- please ignore the bad lighting and dishes in the sink/drying on the counter in these pictures. I took them this morning while it was gloomy, raining and I was brewing my coffee with my beloved Tassimo. No time to empty the sink 🙂

  1. I adore the pattern and love the LENGTH too! I just bought a shorter foam-y one from target for 20 bucks the other day b/c I was getting foot cramps from cooking and doing dishes for too long. wow. I must be 60 saying stuff like that!? ahhh when did I get old?

    I think you’ll get used to it! <3 It's puuuuurrrrrdy!

  2. Ooh, I love it! And I TOTALLY know what you mean about one of those drastic changes you just have to get used to. I feel that every time I get a haircut–and I hate it at first before I eventually fall in love with it!

    I’ve had my eye on that rug. Such a great style.
    I’m so glad to hear that you aren’t always 100% happy with the changes you make and need some time to get used to it. I’m not the only one! It usually takes me a while to get comfortable with any type of decorating change.

  4. GAAAHHHH BIEBER!!!!!! KAHN!!!!!!!!!! BIEBER!!!!!!!!!!!
    (yes, that’s a Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Kahn joke. Lame, I know).

    Glad to see you finally got the rug, though!

  5. K seriously I can’t stop laughing at the JB picture. 🙂

    I love the runner it looks great! Don’t question it a moment longer!

    I like it! I know what you mean about it being a big change that you have to get used to. Our kitchen rug was like that for me.

  7. I always have trouble when new things move into the house. I can never decide if they look funny because they are new or because they really just look funny.

    Your rug is great though..trust the cat! 🙂

  8. I love the runner. Looks great.
