One of the few times the sun was out recently I snapped this shot hoping to show the new "mood" of the room with the lighter carpet.
In this picture the carpet almost seems gray but of course it's not. The tone is affected even by things from the outside. There's a big blue spruce off to the right outside and at times the carpet picks up a blue cast and now the thick glass tabletops can reflect blue onto the carpet too! I never saw that affect on the golden yellow carpet we previously had.
The color is called Eggshell made by Karstan and the name is Dramatic Details.
I talked about this before in the post I did about when it was installed and we dubbed it the "broken box" design. I like it a lot - it has a velvety feeling under foot. I wanted a updated look leaning towards contemporary yet to still workable with our traditional home.
The game table was shifted over to where the tv had been and I'm using it to display some family pictures that I will add on to as time goes by.
I set the mood with some candles late afternoon. Those of you who have followed me will note the tv is centered now on the south wall and not in the corner any longer.
The big grandfather clock was relocated to the corner and it works there nicely. I often look up to it in the evenings when watching tv to check the time.
I finally found my glass pumpkins. This is a new candle by Voluspa called Incognito with a wonderful amber glass designed container. It has a yummy smell.
We turn off the gas line to the fireplace during the off months so I can't have a fire burning just yet. The candles will have to create the ambiance for now!
I love the new carpet. It definitely lightened up the room and somehow it feels more spacious too.
The mood is set for the evening!
