Family Room Updates

It seems like our family room is ever evolving.  It was actually the first room I redid while blogging.  I've recently added some new accessories.  My sister Ivette decided to give me a gift as a thank you for redoing her apartment.  I told her she was ridiculous and that all her projects made for some good blogging content.  That's enough of a thank you.  However, she insisted.  Well, I happily obliged.  She bought me the Gaser Rug from Ikea. It's a grey, really high pile rug. It feels delicious underfoot and I'm loving it.  Our last rug was a creamy white Ikea Vitten rug, which we loved for a good two years.  It, however, was looking really dingy.  So a new rug was very welcome.  Thanks Ivette!
Last week, my mom,  sister Jessica, and I headed to Ikea.  I bought the Eivor throw. I am loving anything black and white stripes and I had to have it.
I also bought the Gurli throw as an everyday comfy throw.  I've already taken a few naps with it and I love it. 
Here's another angle of the room.
Here's a close up of the rug.  It has grey and white threads that give it a great texture.
Here you can see my flower pouf in this angle.

Of course, for those who haven't been reading for long, a reminder of our family room when we bought the house.
My house seems to be always changing, but I love it that way.  I guess that's why I took up blogging.

It looks fabulous. You have amazing windows and therefore so much great natural light in the space. The rug is great - so much texture and I am sure so comfy.

I love the open airy feeling of your family room and the new throws are fabulous. I could curl up there.

Look at all of that light! You took 50 years off of that room. I am a big fan of Ikea too! Unfortunately it requires a 3hr pilgrimage by car to get there...
