Hello there! A lot has happened in the last month, I've been living a very full life lately (read: I've been busy; but "busy" sounds a bit negative so I'm saying "life is full" instead). I've been away from this blog for too long and it's about time I got back to updating it. I have Chairish to thank for giving me the motivation I needed to write again - they reached out to me asking how I would take a room from white to bright, showcasing one of a selection of vintage rugs available on their site. You know I love colour and I love their site so I thought it would be fun to participate! By the way, if you're not familiar with Chairish, it's an exclusive, curator approved online marketplace for vintage and used furniture. Think of it as a curated Craigslist, if you will. From the selection of rug images they sent me, I was immediately drawn to this Grass Green Abrash Turkish Rug:
The colour is perfect for welcoming spring. I've been drawn to a green-and-pink, Palm Springs, Lilly Pulitzer vibe lately so that is what dictated the colour scheme I chose for my mood board. And of course, gold. Lots of gold. In my own space, I like to change my colours with the seasons, and that's done easily and inexpensively by changing the throw pillows, so I've added lots of colour and pattern in my choice of pillows in my imagined room (also all available from Chairish). I kept the sofa neutral but to add interest I chose a sofa with a hint of colour in the piping to add interest. I chose a round coffee table to break up all the hard lines and warmed up the space with the wood frame of the upholstered chair. I added more colour with the Brushstroke lamp and in the art behind the sofa.
If you want to create this look, all the sources are below. Thanks to Chairish for inviting me to share my favourite rug with you and for getting my creative juices flowing again!
