MUST HAVE FOR THE HOME :: THE ROUND JUTE RUG

armadillo and co jute rug // simone haag home

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has picked up on the many many times I’ve seen this round jute rug in interiors lately – especially those coming from down under – but I’m officially obsessed and wanting one for my own… I’m kind of kicking myself now for not nabbing one I found […]

    Wow those are awesome. What a great way to add texture to a room with a big impact. Makes it feel more warm and earthy, too- bringing an outdoor feel indoors. And as a headboard?! Melissa, that sounds amazing. If you have a pic, please share!

    Hi, I look at your blog often and enjoy it very much, but I’ve never made a comment. We had these in the 70′s. Back then, they were very inexpensive. You could get them at hippie shops – “head shops” – its funny now! I always like them – glad they are back!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 8.15

MR Architecture // modern dining room

Sometimes it takes quite a bit of digging through my files to find a worthy Room of the Week. Last night I spent hours diving into new blogs and sites, seeking new inspiration and spaces that I haven’t seen on the pages of Pinterest a million times already. Then, I came across this dining room […]

    The balance between the very sheer curtain and the textured rug is really great. Do you know where the rug is from? Also, sort of curious to know what city this home is in…Anyway, I approve! Great room!!

    It is a beautiful space. I do suppose the only person thinking about practicality would be the one who has to vacuum that rug!

THE ONE

Sometimes I go through the hundreds of images bookmarked on pinterest or saved to one of my many folders and discover a common theme – a color, a texture, a fabric – but when I looked through the small selection of inspiration images for my own apartment, I realized something big they had in common… […]

    Nathan Turner in LA. I called about it a couple of months ago and they only had smaller sizes left. I think 5×7 is what they told me. Hope that helps!

    It’s beautiful! I actually haven’t seen it before (and I see many – many a rug each day…) I’ll keep an eye out for you though!

    Will keep a lookout! Have you tried contacting the photographer who took the photo? I’ve tracked paint colours and bed linens down that way! It could take a bit but would be worth getting the rug you really have your heart set on!

    It’s a Lisa Fine rug, but I don’t believe she makes rugs anymore. Yes, Nathan Turner’s store in LA has some left. Call there.

ON THE HUNT: THE PERFECTLY LAYERED RUG

6323069943_a67cee6fea

Thanks to my huge bank of bedroom inspirations there is one element I can confidently say will be happening in my own space: a double layer of rugs. The only part that I’ve yet to determine, is what combination!I’m guessing the smaller rug will be one of three options – sheepskin, cowhide or a small […]

    I’m loving the white on white! A bonus is that IKEA sells those little sheepskins for a nice price!

    I really love this look! It is something I don’t normally think of, but looks sophisticated and is extra comfy…especially to have a 2nd rug on sisal!

    I’m considering a Moroccan on sisal for my living room so my first thought would be to go with 4 on 2.

    That being said, 4 on 6 would be really lovely as well!

    Your posting this at the perfect time. I am on the hunt for another area rug to go over my carpet. I love the look!

    i’m loving the sisal rug and the metalic cow hide together. it’s a touch of glamour with the natural sisal, i think it’s perfect.

    I used to have a sheepskin rug in my room (while a legit Persian rug would be ideal, post-college budget prevails!) because I wanted to add texture, plus it’s so cozy! BUT, majorly bummed at how quickly it became dirty and matted (even though I’d regularly clean it/shake it out), so it’s been relegated to the closet for shame of anyone seeing the matted mess. I wound up buying a cowhide and am much happier! I was surprised to find it’s actually soft on bare feet and it makes my tiny SF bedroom look much bigger, super groovy! (I think its free form shape means doesn’t allow you to immediately asses the scale of the room). Hope this is of help. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your progress!

It’s Alissa from The Goods Design, back with another Goody Bag, sharing LA’s best interior design events. It’s been a slow few months here on the design party scene, so it was exciting to get back into the action with a bang! Tuesday night is not usually a big social night, but when Martyn Lawrence-Bullard […]
