So, all that said, I have been searching all over creation and have found a couple of rugs that might meet the requirements I've established for myself. But because I am non-committal, and still a bit nervous about making such a big decision, I put together some mockups to give me a better idea of whether I would actually like any of my choices. [Editor's note - forgive my shoddy Photoshop job...I am a newbie!] My real concern is the color choice, and I don't know that I've solved that problem entirely, but I think this is a start. See what I mean:
Those are my top 3 choices, in order, right now. There is one other rug that I found that I also like, though this one is a heavier weight unlike the beachy feel I just described.
So what do you think? Are any of these rugs speaking to you? Well if so, please kindly share your thoughts with me. We indecisive types need all of the feedback and confirmation we can get!
