We definitely have a 'statement carpet'. It's Very Pink, which is suitable in some circumstances, but not what I'd choose for my living room carpet. When we moved here - nearly 13 years ago - the house move took up all our money, so decoration was something that could wait. Everything was servicable, if not entirely to our taste, so nothing to really complain about.
We've done bits and bobs of changing things and re-painting and so on...but we've also gathered more furniture, particularly several now very full bookcases. I don't think we can be bothered with the emptying/moving of all of them in order to get new carpet fitted...and the pink has faded quite a lot!!
(I've light-heartedly suggested carpeting up to the bookcases but Mr Maizie did not find any humour in that. So he can move the darn bookcases then )
