Favorite new thing.....chevron rug

I have been promising to post some  pictures of our new house for a long time, we have been here 6 weeks today and I have managed to paint a couple of rooms and have a few projects in the works. But I have to say so far this has been my most favorite thing that I have gotten for the house. 

My chevron rugs from Ballard Designs. A while back I did a post on my obsession on chevron and now I am loving my chevron runners. I got 2 that are either side of my island that you see in the picture. That was another one of my finds recently that I got at a consignment shop. It is actually an old buffet that we are going to use as our island and have a piece of marble put on top. To my surprise it was painted with ASCP in Graphite, the same color that I am hoping to paint the old built- in cabinet you see in the background.

The rugs are indoor/outdoor which make them a bit more durable and they are actually pretty soft on the feet. I love the gray and sand color and it matches great with the soft graphite paint color. I am hoping to get this great fabric that has grays, yellows and whites, for my windows to go with the paint and rug. I know this wasn't so fantastic but I will post more. 

Coming up, I will post my next favorite find, which was this great candle holder that I am actually having turned into my foyer light, I will post a picture of the final product but this is what it looked like before I gave it to my lighting guy - can't wait for the final product and have it hanging up!
