I'm starting to see how little things can bring some added joy to my life.
Like I've said before, our home used to be one of my parents' vacation rentals. In the 2+ years we've lived in it, I've slowly converted/switched all the Hawaiiana pieces into things that reflect our style. After all, we're not on vacation here. Ivy and I were both born and raised in Hawaii and don't need to surround ourselves with fake palm trees and pineapples in the privacy of our own home. One of the last pieces in our home reflecting this touristic culture was a palm tree rug in our entry way. It was a little stained from where Ivy colored on it with black permanent marker a year ago, and from normal wear and tear (sorry mom). I was at Pier One earlier this summer, and fell in love with a colorful entry rug on sale for like $16.
Here is the before and after:
I can't believe how much more cheery the new rug makes the entry!
Up close the various fabrics are so cute.
Ivy loves it too.
And practices her 1st position on it.
Amazing what a new rug can do! Call me shallow, but I get so happy looking at it! Thanks Pier One, for brightening my day. (This is not a sponsored post, though I wish it were! All opinions are my own.)
