    An Egg Hunt

    Happy Easter to you all, wishing you all a fabulous day of celebrating.  Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite eggs from around the blogosphere. I love the glitzy spin and creative approach…

    Weekend Window {Spring Awakening}

    No two ways about it… Spring has arrived in North Texas!! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and the grass is growing (and fast too… lawn mower, here we come!). Today’s Weekend Window is inspired by just that – the growth, vibrance, and joy of Spring time. For those that celebrate, Easter is coming up this weekend as well. I can’t wait to toss my boots and sweaters for sundresses, fabulous colored denim and a sassy pair of wedges. How about you? Will you be wearing Spring pastels this weekend? You can be sure that I’ll be donning both very soon!

    Six things rocking’ my world

    I love when I get asked what my latest design obsessions are. I have so many that narrowing it down is always hard to do, so I try to stick with what I am using in projects or what I wish I were using in current projects!  Today the lovely and talented Joslyn Taylor from DHome asked me to share a few of them for their blog.  Pop on over to see what I narrowed it down to…

    My favorite flat weaves

    I have been in the process of updating the overall look Studio and I think I am going to go with a cotton flat weave or a  Dhurrie rug.  Dhurrie rugs are flat woven, meaning that they have no pile. They can be made from wool, cotton or synthetic materials and can be hand woven or machine made. These rugs are usually reversible. The pattern on the front can be viewed clearly from both sides. Authentic Dhurries are made in India and are made of wool or cotton and come in a variety of sizes.   West Elm has some of the most fabulous Dhurries and I love all of the graphics!

    You can find flat weave rugs all over the place but my favorites are from The Rug Company and Madeline Weinrib. I love that these vendors offer a lower price point while still bringing the bold designs, colors and quality they are known for. We are fortunate to have a West Elm and The Rug Company Showrooms here in Dallas.  I stopped by The Rug Company last week as they were getting in their new Dhurries….

     

     

     

     

    I am in love with the HUGE selecting that Madeline Weinrib has in her cotton collection. I have tried to use her rugs multiple times but didn’t have the 18 weeks to wait for one of them.  They are gorgeous!!
