Eventual living room rug….what do we think? I’m diggin’ the Ikat pattern, as always well done West Elm.
An affordable and dreamy rug folks. I am just waiting for a client that has the right space and edge to pull off this rug. Thanks Ikea for being awesome.
My hubby and I have been wanting to add a map to our place for as long as we’ve lived together. I like to pretend it’s because I’m super brainy and need to reference it daily as I ponder how people are living their lives in different parts of the world. In reality it’s because I think maps are pretty and I more often need to reference a map because I am awful at geography.
Someday we will get a real map, not just decorative, that is current for our boys. I’m guessing it will take the form of a shower curtain. Long before that happens, we are potentially talking this weekend folks, I will scratch my map-as-art itch by framing one of Paper Source’s Cavallini Fine Papers. I’m hoping one of Ikea’s pre-matted frames will be large enough to fit the 20″x28″ paper size. I’m sensing a child-free Ikea outing in my near future.
I obviously saved the best for last. I think Mr. Elephant Map is going to soon become a part of our home.

Every part of my soul is hoping that I will someday own these gorgeous Jonathan Adler Coasters. I never thought I would be the one to decorate in shades of blue, but my new apartment seems to be calling me in that direction. I’m thinking coasters and throw pillows are the way to start.
I could really use one of these prints to put right next to my bed so it’s the first thing I see when I wake up.
There is definitely a neat story behind this functional art that I will include below. I just thought they were adorable! I’m sure I could find a great spot for these and I know Charlie would love them.
Artists: Ricardo Casas, Héctor Esrawe, Emiliano Godoy, Cecilia León de la Barra, Óscar Núñez
Three characters disappear from large, solid white blocks, and their absence suddenly makes them important. The resulting emptiness is filled with the user’s belongings and through this action the silhouettes’ meaning shifts. The pieces suggest a continuous play between interaction and representation, where daily use generates a continuously changing story: a cat that reads Italo Calvino, a book filled with coins, a living room where birds come to eat the cake’s crumbles…
