Home Office Changes

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Hello!  Today I thought I’d share some changes I made to my office earlier this month.  I wanted to add some dark navy to the office and some raspberry pink too (I love that combo) so here’s a peek at some new window panels and a new rug I added.   The rug and panels that I bought and made last summer got moved to other spaces.  I replaced the rug with a navy and white trellis rug that I scored for 75% off on a Cyber Monday sale in December.

The X-leg desk I bought marked down to $175 last year from a local furniture shop, but I found out you can also buy it here.   The desk chair is from Staples, and the white color is only for sale in stores but I saw it there last week so I know it’s still available.  The new window panels are one of my patterns I designed, it’s an edgy grid geometric print in navy and raspberry pink – it will be available in a few colorways soon.

Rugs in the Casa

Friday, August 31st, 2012

I’ve had a lot of questions lately about the rugs in our house so today I thought I’d share a little more about them and some of my favorite sources for rugs.   We have hardwood floors downstairs so I have rugs in all of the spaces, and a couple upstairs on the carpets too, just to add color and pattern.   I don’t want to spend a fortune on a rug because I don’t want to freak if something spills on it like wine or chocolate or kid crud, so I’m always looking for affordable options.  Maybe someday I’ll have a Madeline Weinrib or a Thomas Paul, but for now, I try to keep rug purchases under $400, preferably less. 

Area rugs always ground a space so I like to use them to set the style or palette for the room or sitting area.  I prefer when the style of the rug coordinates with the style of the room, so that’s where I begin when searching for a rug but you’re always free to mix it up!  For the living room, I went with a traditional style, it’s a rug I bought on clearance at World Market two years ago, it used to sit in the family room but it has now made itself at home in the living room.

I get a ton of emails about this rug, but unfortunately I can’t find it anywhere, even on eBay, but here are some comparables!
