As mentioned by Elisabeth in the comments yesterday, we have a new rug! Our tile floors used to be heated, and that was very nice. But ever since the radiant heat system failed (in 2009) and we were left with stone-cold (not to mention stone-hard) tile floors, I’ve wanted a nice rug for the living room. We finally purchased one last month, and the effect is quite astonishing! The rug is the center for all sorts of imaginative play, from pretending to be dragon hatchlings (see the photo above), to providing a space for goofing off with Daddy:
And serving as a soft place to run around and practice forward rolls!
I also appreciate the break the rug gives me from our rather unusual tile-floor pattern!
Is there something in your home that has transformed your daily life?
