Joining the Club: Sheepskin Rugs

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

I find the simplest accessories bring great comfort and this time of year it’s all things furry and fuzzy. We have a small collection of faux fur blankets to drape over the beds or sofas for chilly nights. I do love my Mongolian lambswool pillow cover, and recently I succumbed to the lure of the sheepskin rug.

I originally bought it for the floor but it has made its way to the tufted sofa. This is the spot the kitty prefers now but I love just as much for catching up on magazines or a great read. Ubiquitous? Sure. But I couldn’t care less given how soft it is.

I absolutely love the feel of these rugs, I bought this one a few weeks ago and I’m thinking of one more for my bedroom, they add such a cozy and warm layer in winter.

So it’s official, I’ve joined the sheepskin rug club, raise your hand if you have one too! Where do you keep yours?

Decorating with.. Orange!

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

September is my favorite month – not only because we celebrate our wedding anniversary (and my birthday!) but because when it comes to the weather, only October and May can compete. Sunny skies and turning leaves make me appreciate each day as the season changes from summer to autumn, and I can’t help but spend as much time outdoors as possible.

Today I’m continuing the Color Series with a hue we see so often this time of year, the color orange. I absolutely love this color in all shades from vivid citrus to earthier amber, especially paired with its complement blue (my favorite hue) or calming gray.

One of my favorite spaces to spy orange is in kids’ rooms, it’s a gender neutral hue and makes a child’s space a happy one.
