He Says, She Says

Look at the rug (on the wall).

I held the catalog picture up to Matt and said, "What do you think?"

He said, "No."

I said, "Yes, oh yes."

He said, "That tattoo thing is not attractive. I don't want to feel like I'm looking at some Marine's deltoid all the time."

I said, "Deltoid? Making up words is not going to dissuade me."

Seriously, I think that is totally hot, but only as a wall-hanging, like they have it. The only place I really need something that big is in my dining room. And I don't think it would look as good hanging above my chair rail as it looks in their super-mod brick-walled space. Sigh. It's sad when you see something you love, but you just can't cram it into your life edgewise.

Now maybe as a headboard. . .

sorry girl, I have to agree with Matt this time. His analogy was right on.

delaine said...

Yeah, I could see that rug as a "headboard". It might look good in that room. But, maybe not so much in your dining room. Matt is funny sometime, huh?

Cassie said...

That. Is. COOL.

Hootie said...

Why not just make some Marine friends and have them over for dinner? "Death before dishonor, but after the sorbet."

Kate said...

I got that same exact catalogue in the mail yesterday! Cool stuff, not our style.

C'mon Girl! You know you'd be dealing with some SERIOUS buyers remorse over that one.

". . . some Marine's deltoid." Now that's classic.

Amy said...

Ok, you know I usually totally have your back. But I'm not so sure about this one. I like the idea of it though, just maybe not that specific one. Mwah!

Becky said...

Y'all are right, I know. Dental Maven nailed it. $350 later I would be, like, um. . .this isn't working.

That's kind of the thing, though. Don't you ever see something and think, "I love that, just not for my life."

I'm definitely doing what Hootie suggested though.

Bex said...

yes! yes! yes! i want that in my loft!

Casey said...

I like rugs on walls. Not sure I LOVE that one but I like the idea.

Keely said...

Normally I love your style choices, but, um...no. I think the tattoo thing has been overdone.

Sara said...

Can you at least make a big poster of it and tape it up as a headboard and report back with Matt's response?

Becky said...

Yes, overdone is probably right. Sara, I'm afraid if I did that, he would roll his eyes so far up that they would stick there.

No. No, no, no, no, no. Just no.

Michael said...
