GET THE LOOK :: ETHNIC CHIC

If I never hear the term ‘festival style’ again in my life it will be too soon, but there is something to be said for the overall aesthetic of this genre.

    Love the bohemian look. Cost Plus usually has some nice, flowy tops and kaftans that I love to pair with a nice pair of jeans!

    I’ve been looking for those Dolce Vita shoes in my size everywhere! They are the perfect summer heel in my opinion.

THE MAR A MAR COLLECTION

I am a huge fan of the bold, worldly patterned rugs at Decorative Carpets, and am loving their latest collection – Mar a Mar… Such a variety of influences here, I don’t know which would be my first pick! Aqua zig zags? Blue deco fans? Red medallions? If you’ve never browsed through their site, I […]

KUBA COOL

For years now, this has been one of my favorite rooms for a variety of reasons… The apricot chairs. The silvery blue bench. The distressed wood coffee table. The fresh white sofa. And the little pop of pattern from those fabulous pillows. Well, if I can’t have it all, at least I can have these… […]

    This is such a serene room. I love the pillows and the lamps. A great alternative to suzanis and ikats.

    Been seeing that pattern in a few places, thanks for sharing the name and info! I do love that it's a new graphic element. I'm not QUITE sick of ikat yet, but I'm ready for something new and different and these are beautiful!

    I love the pattern – just beautiful!! I also want to note that Zaire is no longer that country's name. Zaire was the name of the present Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    This has been ONE OF MY FAVE pics of all time too!! The pillows are what caught my eye….I didn't know they were from Wisteria and I was so hopeful until i saw the price…
    Ugh, I can't justify spending more than $100 on a cushion….darn!!

    Do you know where the image is from? I've had it saved forever, but I foolishly forgot to save the source. It is such a gorgeous room!

ROOM OF THE WEEK 4.1

I thought about putting up the most hideous room I could possibly find as an April Fools joke today… but that’s just not very nice, nor inspiring, is it?? Instead, I give you this…What might be my favorite room from the latest issue of Lonny. There are a few pieces in here that I wouldn’t […]

    I love Lonny. It's free and all of the sources are hyperlinked. The lamps and blue dotted pillows are great.

    Well, you have lectured us about the great aspects of green and turquoise together. So I, too, am in love with this room. Haha

    Love to see your take on ugly, I bet you would find some goodness.
    I adore a good April Fool's joke and good interior decor.

Room of the Week 2.26

When I woke up this morning, I knew this had to be the Room of the Week today… I stumbled on this room via Alkemie in the middle of the winter, and knew I would save it for brightening my mood when I needed a little dose of sunshine. With more snow on the ground […]

    That room looks like a treehouse for adults. All I’d need is a bookshelf full of adventure stories, some Jasmine tea and you couldn’t make me leave. LOVE IT.
