Carpet is as carpet does?

Or something like that. Nancy and I decided to give each other carpet for Christmas this year. Our carpet has been here since we have, for just over 20 years, and is now looking like roadkill of the feline variety.

Nancy has never had to pick out carpet before and is having quite a time with it. We've been to the carpet department several times and brought home samples to lay down next to the walls but haven't found "the one" yet.

Tomorrow is our daughter's half day to work so we're hoping maybe she'll be able to lend her visual acuity to picking out something that will click with our colors.

The living room has this awesome antique burgundy wall that contrasts very nicely with the vanilla steam color used on the other walls.

The problem is finding a cream/tan that isn't on the yellow side or to brown or to light for family space. Then the kitchen and hallway have a blue theme with a dark floor..........oy vey, maybe we should have just painted everything white.

Here is a pic of Nancy's anniversary quilt. The different colors in these rooms are also in this quilt.

And of course, a picture of the love of my life:

We're hoping to have the carpet on hand and installed the week prior to Christmas. Keep your fingers crossed for us :)
