Spring Porch Decor with Dash & Albert

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Hello everyone, don’t mind me I’m just feeling the softness of this new rug under my toes! I’ve been the biggest fan of Dash & Albert rugs for years, oh yes I’ve got one in my dining room, one in my living room, one in my son’s room, and I used a Dash & Albert striped runner on this staircase makeover.

The Poppy Leaf outdoor rug is my latest acquisition – part of the new PET line of rugs from the Annie Selke company bringing all of us stylish rugs that are family and pet friendly. These rugs are fabulous quality, easy to clean, and so soft I marvel at how they are washable outdoor rugs!

And there’s a cozy Citrus throw to go along with it in another pretty shade of green, a hue I never tire of since the verdant color is everywhere we look outside. I was invited by Annie’s team to style a few of their new products for spring on the small porch at the Las Vegas fixer upper house since I recently painted the front door and replaced the door handle so I happily accepted (I moved the previous rug to the rear sliding door.)

For the porch I chose the Poppy Leaf rug for pattern, the Mingled Turquoise pillow for color, and the apple Nautilus pillow for fun.

Get the Look: Blue + White Pattern

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

This spring Pantone’s Classic Blue is among the lineup of featured colors and in the latest House Beautiful Egyptian Blue was in the spotlight. The names for shades of blue are endless and the blue and white pairing is very on trend in both fashion and interiors, while block print, indigo dye, and shibori patterns continue to be popular in textiles.

The blue and white combo is a classic! Instead of simple solids, consider these fresh patterned favorites for decorating around your home this season:

splatter lamps / origami pillow / dreambirds vase / indigo octagon pillow / chinoiserie knob / bistro stool / geo tray and bowl / school of fish linens / scribble curtain / trellis plates / ayla pillow / medallion rug

You’ll hear no complaints from me, the blue and white pairing will always be a favorite!
