Cowhide Rugs – in action!

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

I bought 2 cowhides off of Craigslist (thanks Maya – I know that guy was weird) for $50 a pop.

One ended up in the master bedroom at the end of the bed instead of the peacock blue Hemmet rug from Ikea. I LOVE it. I love the shape, the color, and how it breaks up all the angles in the room.

I added the other to the den. I’m not as happy with it here, but still I like it more than the ugly brown rug I had before. Now I want to change a whole bunch of things, the coffee table, the couch, I want a larger white cowhide rug…uggggh.

Have I exclaimed my love for the Jorun Bedspread at Ikea?




Its the only thing I like about my bed – except for the needlepoint 69 pillow.


Bedroom Glam

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

On the recent thrifting extravaganza I picked up this fabulous lighting fixture for $50 at the Palm Springs Revival thrift store. It has a very glam seventies vibe which I really am starting to dig right now – admit it – we are all loving Lucite and brass.

When we first moved in we installed this Ikea Fado pendant lamp to replace a broken down mess of a ceiling fan. I love replacing the Ikea with something a little more vintage, eclectic and unique – it just takes time and lots of digging to find those perfect fixtures.

The Boy has now initiated a cease fire on installing ceiling fixtures after all the Jerry rigging we’ve had to do in the last week. Too bad – I’ve got a cute Lightolier fixture that needs to be installed in the kitchen.

Here it is all installed and making the master bedroom just a little sexier.

Just as a personal reminder – here’s that same area in the bedroom almost exactly one year ago to the day.

Another thing that makes this bedroom sexy – this fab vintage pillow thrifted here in town. WOW.
