Living Room New Rug

I knew I wanted an "Oushak" style Turkish rug in a neutral colour, so it didn't take me long before deciding to go with the Unique Loom's Arcadia rug in light grey from Wayfair

The colour is a true grey, not too cold not too taupe, which works perfectly with the rest of the tones in my living room. 

The fringe adds a touch of sophistication. 

It's a low-pile rug but feels so soft and lush. Best part is, it doesn't shed at all! Definitely a plus for an allergy-prone household. 

I also really like the distressed weaving technique - it's more subtle than overdye IMO. 

The last missing piece before I can complete this neverending #oneroomchallenge is the coffee table I ordered from ELTE. Fingers crossed it doesn't get delayed again. 

With this super soft throw by Têxteis Penedo from HomeSense, a Verner Panton Mirror Throw lookalike, my living room finally feels right for the cooler cozy fall months. 

Speaking of fall, how was your Thanksgiving? My aunt and her family came to visit so we had a blast. I was in my happy place baking this Lemon Buttermilk Bundt Cake using this recipe from Once Upon a Chef. 

The Nordic Ware Bundt Pan is so lightweight and worked so well. My pound cake had a perfect crust - did it not look like a giant doughnut? 

And then the bird. We only had seven people so we decided to go with a large chicken instead. 

This bird first went into a smoker with apple wood for 2 hours, then into the oven on roast for 75 minutes. The outcome was crispy-skin-falling-off-the-bone-finger-licking kind of goodness. 

The next day the bird-stuffed clan hiked up the Bruce Trail in Caledon Hills. Pink, orange and red foliage was peeking through and the view was simply breathtaking. 

And I am so happy to report the Cheltenham Badlands is finally fenced off! OPP was even onsite to direct traffic.
