Around Here: Whole Home Update

I'm just back from a getaway in the mountains. I was feeling a little blah and the fresh air and zero service were just what I needed. It's great to be forced to unplug- especially for an extended period of time.
Once I was home I threw myself into the thick of things with home projects. We were able to get the family room done over the weekend. So keep your eyes out for that reveal. And then we're throwing ourselves full steam ahead on the master bedroom (see last post) AND office.
In the past my own design schemes have often been rushed or maybe lacked vision because I poured all of my creativity into my design client's projects. This time I'm trying to take my time and be a little more thoughtful so I end up with a result I love.
I was still contemplating changing out all of the flooring or painting it all white, but I realized an oversized area rug will be good enough for the time being and will mean that I can focus that part of the budget on other projects- which we've planned PLENTY of, basically a whole home overhaul. In the past it's meant new cushion covers and paint, but this time I'm talking walls being moved and a new bathroom, etc. More on that later though. In the meantime I'm trying to decide on a master bedroom area rug. Here's what I'm thinking.
We're also trying to decide if we want to add trim work to the wall to give it some visual interest. I had some trim installed in the living room last year (I've included a picture of it going in below) and I was thinking I might like the same sort of thing for the bedroom as well. 
I'm also over my bedside table lamps. I still love the bedside tables though... thank goodness. So I'm on the hunt for lamps or sconces. These two both caught my eye. The sconces would be a more costly investment but I love that they'd clean off the bedside surface and therefore look much less cluttered. 

That's where I'm at for now. I'm also torn between metal finishes because the room has a lot of brushed nickel in it as well. Which would you choose? xo e
