Fun Finds

I found some pretty purple door knobs that I want to use as coat/purse hangers and a fun shag rug to add an interesting element to my room!

 I like that the purples are different shades and the diamond cut helps reflect the light beautifully!

I found this rug and loved it! but it only came in a 2x3 so I bought 2 and sewed them together.  I just bought 2 more to attach so I can make an area rug!

The rug ties in the lavendar, creams and greys from my bed nicely!

 My kitten even gave her stamp of approval!

Reclaim The Past!

Being eco-friendly doesn't have to mean your home is aesthetically unappealing!  There are so many ways to incorporate "green design" into your home!  One way is to reuse things such as wood.  Reclaimed wood is one of my favorite elements to add to a room.  It really warms up the space and the look can be a little more rugged or more polished depending on your taste!

I love the juxtaposition of the earthy wood elements with the stark white contrast! Simple but it makes a big statement!

So beautiful!

One of my favorite sources for reclaimed wood is Elmwood.  They have beautiful selections and are amazingly helpful!
