Decor Dilemma

Wonderland has always been about fashion.  I never wanted to be a “lifestyle” blogger.  I always felt like, “what do I know about such things?”   I know clothes, I know art, but I don’t know a thing about cooking or decor.  I’ve always loved mid-century modern design (for example, I will take all of this please!)  Now that I’m married we’re trying to mesh our styles; he likes modern/contemporary and I like modern/mid-century with a tiny sprinkle of traditional.  But no floral patterns anywhere… ever!  So with this in mind, Wonderland must change.  I created Wonderland as a place to connect with other fashion people like myself.  As I get older (gross) I want to create a home for my family, and we know it better be a stylish one!

Sooooo, remember this post last week?

Well, we ordered this “grey” rug and now I just don’t know what to do… 

Is it too dark?  Is it BIG enough?

It’s not a true grey — it’s black and white threads.  A little too zebra-like for my taste.

Should we go lighter?  I still love the look of this sheepskin rug.  And don’t you love our new Jonathan Alder ‘Nixon’ blanket?  It’s so cozy and made it Peru (so hubby approves).

And no I’m not posing Roxy.  This corner of the sectional is her new perch.  Notice how the blanket doesn’t match our new decor.  Well it’s her blanket and it goes where she goes!

My new favorite addition is this hide and horn stool from Sara Kate Studios.  It’s a bit rustic but I love the texture of the hide and color of the horns looks perfect with our black and white motif.

So this is where you come in…

PLEASE help me decide about the rug.  Should it stay or should it go?  Do I go with a lighter color?  Should I go with a pattern?  Should I go with more of a flat rug instead of a shag?  Thank you for your help!
