Metallic isa mainstay in fashion and home design. Every season, editors exclaim “Silver is Sweet this Spring!”… “Bronze is Back for Good”… “Deck the Halls with Silver Balls!”. I say stop the press and stick with metallic for good! We all need something shiny in our life, and the smooth luster of decorative metal makes my mouth water. I have to declare that I am leaning towards the warmth of gold for my own personal interiors. It looks fantastic year round – up against linens, wools, chocolate, fuchsias, and rich indigo. I’m not afraid of a little eclectic either. I have polished nickel reading lamps, brushed silver drawer pulls, antique gold wall mirrors, and a gilded bar cart. However, the autumnal season is upon us and surely, editors will be shouting “Gold is Hot this Fall. Again!”. So be it. And embrace it. Wear it, and turn it on.

I’ve been dying to bring a Fort Street Studio area rug into one of my interior design projects (and uh, preferably in my own home). Somewhere around two years ago I received a catalog with the name Fort Street Studio across the front – I opened up the cover and was smitten (and probably smiling). I blog about rugs here and there because they can be so inspirational, almost like a painting for your floor. A beautiful rug is the perfect jumping point for room color schemes and design ideas. At Fort Street Studio, Janis Provisor and Brad Davis design 100% silk custom hand-knotted contemporary creations and have master craftsman in central China who meticulously weave original patterns and textures with rich quality and painterly effects. Is it time to build a ‘Fort’ in your living space?

Everyone has a weakness. One of mine is for anything zebra, leopard, striped, and chevron. If you’ve seen the fashion house of Missoni (they are excellent with coordinating many colors in their clothing and home wares), you’ll understand my wide-eyed reactions to this lovely pattern.

Timothy Paul Carpets, located in Logan Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC has the most amazing selection of carpets for all budgets and homes. When helping a girlfriend select an area rug and colors for her new condo loft, I got a great idea when I came across framed pieces of unique fabrics.
Intended as a sales tool for a line of fabrics sold in the shop, they also make terrific graphic art displays for any space (i love the accent lamps too). Thanks for your help Jeremy and good luck with the rug Jessica!

I love this rug. It was in the August issue of House Beautiful and the more I flip through the pages again and again, the more it continues to grab all of my attention. For sale from ABC Carpet & Home (one of my favorite retailers on earth), this multi-color Ikat style rug is handmade in India using vegetable-dyed silk from vintage saris. It retails for $4,299.

I recently came across this bargain online at Smartbargains.com. I frequent these online discount giants on occasion and this week, I fell in love with the Greek Key Sage Outdoor Rug. It comes in two sizes and I think the color is so relaxing and beautiful. It adds a splash of cool vibe without getting in the way of other outdoor decor and plantings. Or use it in the dining room under your busy dinner table – cleans easily and will not stain. Get it while its HOT!
