Eventual living room rug….what do we think? I’m diggin’ the Ikat pattern, as always well done West Elm.
It’s back folks!!!! I just about fainted in the store when I saw that the Green Parson’s Desk from West Elm had been relaunched. I’ve been LOVING mine, and getting compliments and offers to buy it, since 200p. It is stunning in photos but out of this world in person. Now run out there snatch one up before they discontinue it again.

Thanks to Little Green Notebook, one of my daily blogs, I’ve now found a new source for area rugs Rugs USA. With babies, who will soon turn into crawlers and then tipsy walkers with sippy cups, I will probably have to wait a while to get a new Living Room rug, but when I do here is my top choice (Serendipity 1899 Multi Rug):
… These fabulous Jonathan Adler for JC Penny Nesting Tables. Currently I have no room for them, but some day I just know they would work well with my updated mid-century design theme I’ve been working on.
Loving this image of bangles available at J Crew right now. I literally want every last one of these. Wearing them all together may be a bit much… but just a bit. This styling inspired me to look for more lovely blue:
I’ve been having a love affair with the Eames Molded Plastic Chairs lately. I can’t stop day dreaming about eventually owning a set for my dining room. I’ve decided on the white armless, but I can’t decide between the wood dowel base or the metal Eiffel base. Decisions… decisions…
Yes ladies and gentlemen I am watching The Bachelor. I managed to go years and years proudly announcing that I had never watched the show and last season I got sucked in and now I’m a full fledged addict of the show. However I did stop short of watching The Bachelor Pad so for the moment I can feel less than completely embarrassed of my TV watching habits. Feel free to begin judging me now. I have already spent way to much time and brain power thinking about, and talking about, who I think Ben will end up with (Kacie B of course) and an equally ridiculous amount of time complaining about how awful Courtney has been… can we say intentional acting on her part to get famous and very specific editing to keep the show interesting.
I won’t waste any more of my precious readers time discussing my views on this salacious brain rotting entertainment, but I will share some photos of the amazing interiors (well done Patricia Urquiola) to the W Hotel Retreat & Sap Vieques Island, the location of this weeks episode. Stunning! As Liz Lemon would say, “I want to go to there”.
If you loved the style of The W and you would like to interpret some of theme into a room, or two, of your home I’ve compiled a selection of items below that I believe pick up on the flavor of the design. Beware, some of these items are very affordable and some are a bit ridiculous, but I can guarantee that they are all lovely.
