When we purchased the farm the one thing that made me almost say no was that all of the carpeting was off white. I don't like light color carpeting in any house let alone a farm house. It is too high maintenance.
After a few spills in the living room, I said, "enough! " It was challenging with my travel schedule, but I found a place to install it this week while I was home.
There is a day and night difference! It now looks like a country style living room.
