Decorating Deliberations

We ordered our couch this weekend. They are estimating that it will be in in 2 weeks. I am keeping my fingers crossed since my parents are coming in town and we have no living room furniture for them to sit on until it arrives.

In the meantime, we are working on getting their bedroom ready. Still need a bedskirt but once I am done with that, get the curtains hung and one of my projects (upcoming blog) completed for the room, they should be just about set.

We also found some rugs for the living room and dining room. We got home with this one and think it is a tad too small. It is 5x8 but I am afraid an 8x10 will be too big. Any thoughts?
I put the first holes in the walls...the kitchen was the victim this time.The man room is in transition. We need a red couch cover, leather chair and window treatments. But for now, I think it is suitable for Guitar Hero and napping.
We made a turn off of our original decorating path while at Pottery Barn Saturday. All this time I had been planning to have a traditional/cottage style living room with soft muted colors a la this pillow:
then we found this pillow and decided to take inspiration from it instead...
In case you can't tell there are still soft blues in it. We bought these to be used as a pop of color on the couch, but still plan to keep the rest of the room pretty neutral with blue and brown. Who knows what we will end up with when we are done!

Love this rug from Pottery Barn!
And this one from Mazer's for $200 less. Still trying to decide. Mazer's return policy isn't very friendly...so we may be rethinking things.

Lots of decision and purchases left to be made but it is fun seeing things come together!

It is all coming together! Looks great and can't wait to see the new couch. I got my dining room and foyer rugs from overstock.com. They have reviews so you can see what others thought. Most of the time it is free shipping. I loved mine and they were lots cheaper than the stores.
