Yup, that was pretty much us when we realized that the rug we ordered was waiting for us on our doorstep!
Did anyone guess which rug we picked correctly? I think a few of you might have!
We unrolled our lovely new yellow Andalusia rug from West Elm, and as we stepped back to admire the new floor threads, we couldn't help but be distracted by somebody who was even more excited than we were (and we were pretty dang excited!).

And besides, yellow's a lovely accent color in our bedroom, so why not bring it out in other areas of the house, as well?
In the end, we LOVE this rug. Love. It. While it's not plushy by any means, it's substantial (and apparently hand-woven), and we feel confident that it will stand up to many years of
And now for some purdy daytime shots (with another furniture rearrangement and throw pillow swap, more on that later):
What do you guys think? Do you like it as much as Barley? Do you buy furniture and rugs according to your pets' hair color, too, or are we just weird like that?
