Mohawk Rug Review and a Fresh New Entry Way

Oh happy day!!!! My mohawk rug came in sooooo fast! I won the giveaway from over at  Rain on A Tin Roof and I absolutely positively LOVE IT. It is everything I was thinking it would be and more. I placed my order on Feb 12, which was last Wednesday and got it yesterday! Awesome turn around!
Just look at it. It made my entry way so much more welcoming and pretty and it also inspired me to jazz up our "temporary" entry table. I am looking for something longer  like a console table or dresser that I can put baskets under to store shoes and such. 
Here is our entryway before the beautiful Gray Trellis Rug and styling.
It rolled out nice and smooth, except for a couple of little bumps and some extra threading was on it, so I just vacuumed it real quick. You can kind of see the bumps below. After one run over with the vacuum it was perfect. 
It is more of a gray blue in my opinion, but that is perfect because our living room paint color is more of a gray blue as well. The outline is a darker gray/blue color as well. We plan on painting the entry way a shade of gray, I just haven't decided if I want to do the same color as the living room or a lighter shade with maybe some white stripes. Like THIS or THIS or THIS or THIS. I would probably only do that wall that is on the side with the entry table so it isn't too overwhelming with stripes on all of the walls.
We will also be installing hardwood floors eventually and replacing the light fixtures.

I love this quote. It reminds me each morning to be grateful for the job and life I have. 
You can get this printable too, HERE.

And at night time I love the glow that the little lamp sets off on the photos and quotes. 
I told my husband I could just live in there now. It is the best to walk in and out of this area every day. My younger sister came over last night and said it feels much more home-y now.

With Love, Dez
