I Love Rug.

thrifted rug First off, I just want to thank everyone who commented on my last post.  Whether you left a comment on here or via Instagram or Twitter, your kinds words mean a lot.  So thank you!

If you've been following me on Instagram, you might have seen this beauty.  My Mom, the serial thrifted did it AGAIN.  She's on another level with this thrifting gig.  All I have to do is mention what I'm looking for and miraculously she finds it.  Awesome.

And when I say gig, I don't mean she works at a Thrift Store.  She just shops at them like it's her job.  I mentioned I was looking for a runner to put in our entryway.  We recently re-painted and added a console table (photos coming soon) and I wanted to add some colour via a bright rug.  What I really wanted was a kilim rug but could not find one within budget.  She found this for $10 at the thrift store.

Now it looks to be handmade because the fringe doesn't appear to be sewn onto the rug and the patterns aren't exactly symmetrical which makes me think someone did this by hand.  It also feels like wool which is super durable so very happy about that.  It definitely feels like high quality but my knowledge of rugs is very limited.  I did a little google search and some reading to see where these types of patterns originate from but no luck.  If you have ANY CLUE whatsoever, please let me know.

I mean, check out the patterns...so in love.  And here's how it looks in our entry way:

Have you made any rug purchases lately?

 

Feeling Tropical

Guess what? I'll be leaving for Costa Rica in 11 days!

This trip has got me thinking about tropical prints and bright colour. It's so interesting to see how the colour trends in fashion influence home decor and I do believe it could be vice versa as well. The 2 worlds definitely influence one another and it's especially evident this season.

I'm loving the bright dresses and shoes and I'm determined to find something ultra-feminine and colourful to wear to this destination wedding. Have you added any colour to your home or closet for Spring? Anyone in the mood to go shopping?

Wishing everyone a good long weekend and Happy Easter!

Bright and Cheery

Spring is nearly upon us and I'm loving the bright colours and patterns right now. Especially these cheerful items from Anthropologie. Just looking at them makes me feel like warm weather is just around the corner.

Do you have any bright and bold patterns in your home? Or what are you doing to get ready for Spring?
