Living Room Makeover with SureFit

Surefit Makeover

Today I am excited to share a very easy, yet beautiful (if I do say so myself) living room makeover!  I recently received got a slipcover for my couch from the great folks at Sure Fit, and I am so happy with the transformation.  I purchased a slipcover for my recliner a year or so ago, and so I’ve been wanting to get a matching slipcover for the couch.

I’m currently researching and shopping for ideas to makeover various areas of my home.  Last week I told you that I was specifically looking around for items to put in my living and I shared some of my favorite trends in wall decor.  I just got a brown slip cover for my couch, and now I believe I’ve narrowed it down and decided that I want a color scheme of brown and blue-green for my living room.

I’ve been looking at rugs and I found a great selection at  Kalaty has all hand made and mostly hand knotted rugs.  The Oriental rug businesses started in the early 1900s in Iran and came to the United States in 1979.  Today it is still a family business, and as such, they have a focus on high quality design.

Their designs include contemporary and classic patterns.  Just a few that I think you’d love include the Verona, the Sierra, the Majave, and the Caspian, but they are all truly great!

Often the couch or entertainment center is dubbed as the focal point of the room, around which everything else is centered; however, a rug can be just as imporant.  A great rug can grab your attention and draw your eye in.  It can also provide contrast.  For example, if you have a brown or black couch, a brightly colored rug, could really make the room pop.  And if you have a  a lot of similar colored accent pieces in the room (vases, lamps, wall art), that rug can really bring everything together and create a cohesive color scheme or theme.

To illustrate what I’m talking about, I created a collage and inspriration board of decorative items, inspired by a rug at  Since I’m leaning towards blue and brown for my living room colors, I decided to chec out some items that would go great along side this Tibetan Weave Rug:


I’m currently looking for items with a modern and chic look, with perhaps a little “shabby chic” thrown in to the mix.  Here are a few ideas:
