In My House

Carpet Installed

Yesterday our carpet in the nursery was installed. We ended up finding the carpet we really, really liked at Alexanian Carpet & Flooring about 1 month ago.

We went to the Laird + Eglinton location and the style of carpet that I fell in love with was a Godfrey Hirst Wool Carpet. I liked that it had some texture to it, and really liked the waffle look.

Since we needed to order carpet in 12 ft width – and the room was between 8-9 feet wide, we decided to use the remnant for the runner to the basement. It cost a little extra for the binding cost, but it was less expensive than if we were to order a runner later seperately.


I’ll take better “day” pictures tomorrow, but wanted to post an update! It makes such a HUGE difference in the nursery and I now don’t have this fear of slipping down the stairs. 😉

    Thank you!! It's super comfy now in the room, and the stairs are so much safer than before going into the basement. A good thing as I become more front heavy with this baby!

    Kdnana- the ceiling light used to be in our kitchen. I bought it 2 years ago at a little store here in Toronto called MANOR. I have to find the manufacturer name, which I'll have with the nursery round up of sources when it's all done.
