Join Me on a Magic Carpet Ride

Another fab lady messaged me about some interior guidance. This one’s a fun one… she informed me that she just bought a couch, has chocolate window panels and wants a rug that will help add color to the room. I had a BLAST! I love adding color to a room. It’s even more fun when you have a clean slate and it’s with something big like a rug… then maybe she’ll let me scour the internets for pillows, lamps, throws, and wall art and omigoodness the possibilities are endless!!!! We started a super secret pinterest board and we both expressed ourselves through the art of pinning. One Kings Lane had some pretty amazing sales going on and she introduced me to GILT (oh boy).

So I was able to flex my mood board / mock up muscles and lay some rugs down for m’lady. I was kind of really excited when she admitted that she was “having a hard time pulling the trigger”. I took that as, “make as many mock ups as possible, and you know what, throw some pillows on there too”. Ok, so the pillows aren’t situated the best, and I would suggest mixing them up more, but I could really see myself getting lost in the world of pillows for hours when the rug is supposed to be the real star. Ok, here we go. The Magic Genie put it best: In case of emergency, the exits are here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here anywhere! Keep your hands and arms inside the carpet! Weeeeeeeeeeee’re… outta herrrrrrrrrrre!

Ok, so I’ve been scrolling up and down and flipping back and forth for quite some time now. My numero uno choice is #9 (West Elm Bullseye) – – what I would do in MY house. If I was to choose the most aesthetically pleasing I’d say #6 (I’m really digging this over-dyed look), but taking into consideration the look she was aiming for I’d say #7 (red Aztec print). Ironically enough I just received and email saying her hub liked the over-dyed and she was feeling the red and navy Aztec!!!!

That gold deer head up there was just an added touch, I want it really badly so I just like to put it wherever I can, I have it pinned but the page doesn’t exist anymore (furiously waving fist in the air).
