Color My World week 2: decor item

This week I'm using my pink and orange combo in a decor item.  I found a rug at HomeGoods that I loved on sight, and was the inspiration for the color challenge.

The rug was 96 inches long, and was a bit too long for the space.  I cut it down so that it fit just inside the room, and hot glued the edges under.

There was a big piece of rug left over....this seems like it could be a wall decor item, doesn't it?  I think it will go on the wall over the towel rack, once I figure out if I should frame it or mount it.

Next week I'll be using pink and orange paint.  Nothing like an orange toilet to perk up a room.

I forgot to mention last week that at the end of this challenge there will be a linky party where you can show everyone how you added color to your room!
