I know I sent you some ideas for our den...of course they have changed since I am now in the house. I wanted the gray ektorp sofa from IKEA but the fireplace has so many warm tones that I am going to go with the beige one instead. I know some people paint brick but I just can't bring myself to paint this hearth. Rudy loves it and the brick is really pretty.
The rug I picked is the Cadiz from Home Decorators. I purchased the 6'7'' x 9'6'' for around $220. it was on sale and there was free shipping. It is the bottom one in this photo.
It is a synthetic rug and can be used in or out so can withstand lots of wear and tear. I can't until it arrives! Then I can determine the wall color and other elements of the room!
