Kristofer Johnsson + 1

I think the idea of layered rugs is graphic and unique, but although I'm sure the space above was styled just for this shoot, wouldn't that be beyond annoying? Your chair getting caught on one of 5 rugs while you try and get up from the table? And OMG how do you vaccuum all these??? (...that's the 7-cat owner in me spazzing at the thought).

Sidi Kauki 

Run away, far away to an exotic land. To a magical beach and a magical house. To Morocco and Essaouira. To a traditional Dar but one with a difference. Retro and funky, modern and quirky. Bespoke yet family orientated. You'll find me by the open fire with my toes buried in the beni ouarain. Sidi Kauki via Airspace locations.

My new flor carpet tiles

Ever since I first heard about the carpet company Flor I was floored. LOL Such a genius idea - to sell carpet by the tile instead of a whole rug. This means you can create a rug of whatever size you want and arrange the patterns/colours however you wish - and have the ability to change it up over time when you become bored with it. Not only that I have 7 cats who love to barf on carpets so this way if a particularly nasty incident arises I can replace a ruined tile with a new one instead of having to replace an entire rug. I had been wanting to get my hands on some Flor tiles for quite some time and was super excited to have the chance to pick out a sample of 12 tiles. I chose the Askania tiles in grey from their new Floresse line, which is made of 100% natural wool. OMG the wool is incredible...it's so comfortable and will be nice and warm in the winter months. The pattern turned out to be really cool and I opted to make a 5'x7' rug in my living room while alternating the pattern. LOVE!!

Some other points to note: Flor ships to Canada (YAY!!), the backing is rubbery so they stay pretty much in place (you get some stickers that help with that too, although I opted not to use them because my floors are painted wood ***UPDATE: my bad - I assumed the stickers were double-sided) and you don't need those annoying carpet pads. Oh - and when you're done with your tiles you can send them back to Flor and they will guarantee they won't end up in a landfill. (P.S. I plan to use these tiles or buy others to cut and line shelving I want to install for the cats to hang out on).

Quickie 2

Ever had the daydream of living in a showroom? I do and if I could I'd be moving into hunter gatherer and designer Jason Mowen's. His Redfern shop-front looks just as cool in person. Sorry Jason I was the one who left the drool on your window a month or so ago.
