For now I put a small cheap rug there until I decide what I'm going to do with that. I'm thinking for now I could probably take that blanket off the end of the lounge side of the couch. That was there to keep the muddy paw prints off of it. That was always the spot Gibbs would sit on and look out the window.
I've got one or two more posts that I can do about this room. One to show some of the wildlife pieces that sit on the ledge around the room, and the other about that little bench that's sitting in front of the couch.
