plume rug

who doesn’t love a little color on the floor? as much as i love our (admittedly torn-up) wooden floors, i’m always tempted by a beautiful rug. i love this yellow peacock-inspired plume rug from jonathan adler ($895). it looks soft and perfect for a no-sock-wearer like me. click here for more information and to buy.

chevron help

i’m desperately trying to find a great white and black chevron rug for our dining room. i’m in love with the madeline weinrib version above but sadly, madeline’s prices are way, way out of my budget. does anyone know of similar styles in a flat weave anywhere? or even something vaguely similar? i’m really starting…

despite the fact that we’re having a second air conditioner installed in our apt today, it’s starting to feel like fall in retail land. i’m loving these rich woven rugs at anthropologie- the whole store feels like autumn now and i’m really looking forward to being able to put on sweaters, open the windows and…
