New rug in place in the sitting room

New rug in place in the sitting room

I don't know why we call this a sitting room since no one ever sits here, just passes through from one room to the next, but it seems too big to be called a foyer considering the other size of the rooms. Maybe an entrance hall, who knows? Anyway, the new rug is down and I love it. But, like Erma Bombeck and her $10,000 throw pillow, I never realized just how bad the other rugs looked until we got this one, alas.
