After a whole lot (and I mean a LOT) of convincing, I finally got it in my bedroom. Not the Stark one, mind you, but Ballard Designs makes a pretty good copy cat version:
The price is still much better than the designer version but after I shared with you my new favorite rug resource a few weeks ago here, you can imagine that my husband pushed back at the price tag when I insisted we needed the largest one they made for our space. In the end, it was a battle that was well worth fighting. And, while I am not sure he would ever admit to me being right, I'm pretty sure deep down he agrees with me. Really. :)
It's a work in progress but it sure feels amazing to have a bedroom large enough to accommodate a king size bed and two full size side tables after coming from our tiny DC house. Before we moved, my husband's bedside table was a tiny (and I mean TINY - like 6 inches x 6 inches) PLANT STAND as it was the only thing I could find to fit the space. Baby steps...
