I also put an area rug we had in our bedroom in the living room, it really warms the space up. I got that black and white striped throw at Ikea when I went in November so glad I did because it is AWESOME!
We really want to get new furniture, because these couches suck. I am not a fan of the way they look, but more then that they are ruining our backs.
I got a cowhide rug from Tom for Christmas that will be going in the dining room. The glass table is so heavy that we need to have one of Toms friends to help. Ughhh trying to be patient. In other news it's our 3 year anniversary today, and we are going out! Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!
