Kate, Yesterday I decided that my rugs were too dark for spring. So I changed one and flipped another.
The front hall rug was black side up all winter for obvious practical reasons but I think the light side is perfect for spring and then when I need to change it up again I think I will just remove it for summer. As for the dining room, the before picture is the first one and I love the look of it for the fall and winter months. It's cozy and rich but for the summer I think the sisal rug suits best. Words like beachy, casual, clean and simple come to mind.
I love changing existing things around the house to feel that spark that change brings.
