Fine Ottoman

Miss Mendi (my design obsessed mama) sent me these photos of this fine ottoman she saw in DC a couple of weekends ago. She knew I'd die. I did. I died. I want it. She got the ladies card. I want her rug source! The colors! We love Persian carpets. The older and more torn up, the better. During our days in Singapore, we shopped for carpets together until we couldn't see straight! We would sit on stacks of carpets a mile high and just critique carpet after carpet, like we were the worlds carpet experts or something. But I have to say, Miss Mendi's collection is pretty gorgeous! I think we did a pretty good job of picking hers out. I miss those days!

I started my own little carpet collection a couple of months ago at Round Top. I bought this little guy for my kitchen (which is mostly black and white) from some Afghani guys who were down from New York. It's hard to see in this photo but it's really worn and uneven. I like that about it, 100% handmade! Unfortunately this iphone camera makes it look a little brighter than in real life, but you get the gist.

I've been looking for a big 6'x 9' for my entry... I'll let you know how I get on!

New Baby for my Kitchen

Just ordered this little sparkler for my kitchen. So exciting! After some cypress shutters arrive here on June 3rd from NOLA, and some roman shades get installed around the same time, I'll be able to give you a huge kitchen reveal! Just a sneak peak...this is my shade fabric (not this colorway though):
It's called: Family Silver. It's English, Mulberry. I love it, it's so charming. I've been dreaming of it since I first spotted it in a certain Notting Hill Cafe in London a while back!

Sofa Pillows

I'm so jet lagged and have so much to do. But I'm procrastinating thinking about making some new pillows for my sofa. I love this fabric. I think it might look cool with my ikat. I love they way they did that skirt on this chair. Super cute. That's all...when I'm not delirious and zombie-like I'll post something that's more interesting!

The Perfect Tote

I just bought this fantastic tote. It lives in the front of my car and holds paint chips and tape measures, camera, the essentials. I gotta try to keep my car semi organized. I just love love that print. And it's laminated linen, perfect in case my ice tea splashes out of the cup holder! Anna're so cute!
