The Search is On: A Rug for the Bedroom

We’re in Canada this week as my hubby, his brothers & dad bike from Calgary to Vancouver. What a trip! I’m tagging along for the first week in the sag wagon exploring the landscape, national parks and mountain towns while they work oh so hard. Here we are at Lake Louise (can you see that little belly? It came out of no where) in Banff National Park.

But back to the master bedroom decorI was pretty sold on the bogart flat weave brown and white rug from Garnet Hill for the bedroom but have been searching for alternatives that might be kinder to the overall budget.

That’s when I came across a similar woven rug on Overstock for a mere $136, saving me a whopping $142 bones. Plus it was only $2.95 to ship.

So that makes two inspiration board items down – a handmade fabric headboard for our queen sized bed and a delicious brown rug for the floor.

Here’s a quick look at my overall search, and just in case you’re in the market for a brown patterned rug any time soon, a list of sources just below.

Prices are listed for 5×8 rugs, left to right:
Three rugs by Calypso ($275-$650)
Zebra print by Ballard Design ($250)
West Elm Andalusia ($229)
Urban Outfitters ($68)
Ikea Gedser ($249) & Burke Decor ($270)
DwellStudio by Target Perch Rug ($139)

And a big thanks to Beth who commented recently on Suzanne Kasler’s new line of sunburst mirrors over at Ballard Designs and the great selection available at HomeGoods – these stores both make great additions to the sunburst line up.

Vintage Details, Country Accents

Thank you everyone for your wonderful feedback on my fabric headboard project! I’m disappointed that I don’t have a *final* picture yet of it in place… the bedroom is still in it’s early stages.

When I found this wedding shoot via Made By Lex I knew I had to share it here. I love the vintage accents and the beautiful details, plus the scenery is from my hometown of Santa Cruz, California.

Alexis of Made By Lex designed the wedding dress (beautiful shoulder detail) and a friend from school looked over much of the styling. The soft colors of plum, peach and pale yellow offers an antique sweetness to the decor and I love love the cowboy boots and feather hair pieces.

I’m inspired by this photoshoot because of how well the different vintage elements come together. Makes me want to pull every mismatched plate and crystal vase out of my cupboards and decorate the dining table with wild flowers, peacock feathers and bunches of herbs.

So lovely! I’d love to use this theme for a baby or bridal shower, girlfriend’s birthday or maybe just a shabby chic tea party outside. How fun to ask everyone to arrive in vintage dresses and cowboy boots…
