Happy Friday folks! I am always on the hunt for great bargains and I am a sucker for rugs. I use them in every room in my house (I just did a quick mental check and I really do have at least 1 in every room) as it is my favourite way to add warmth, texture and colour to a space. I am here to share the news that Main Street Oriental Rugs is currently offering closeout prices on their handmade, 100% natural wool Tibetan & Nepalese area rugs. WOOT!!! They also have some new arrivals of hand-knotted, 100% natural wool vintage Persian Heriz rugs. I highly advise you go check them out and score yourself a sweet deal on a new rug. Here are some samples of the Tibetan and Nepalese rugs on super sale right now (I absolutely adore the first one)…
And here are some of the vintage Persian Heriz rugs…
With a storefront in Ellicott City, Maryland, Main Street Oriental Rugs also have an online shop, an Etsy store and you can find them on Twitter and Instagram. They carry over 3,000 rugs – high quality, hand-knotted, 100% wool and/or silk, Persian, Oriental, and contemporary style. And depending on your preference they stock both vintage and new rugs. (They even offer cleaning, repair, and restoration services if you’re in the area). Now to get your creative juices flowing and get you thinking about how fabulous rugs are and where you might need your next new rug, I have some inspirational photos for you.

I want to sit on that sofa, rifle through the cupboards, flick the light switches on and off, pour myself a drink and pat the dog. I want to squish my toes into all the rugs, work in that office, run my fingers across the bathroom stone, take shelter from the midday sun in the cabana and swim in the pool. What I really want is this Hollywood Hills house by Veneer Designs.

Another Ballroom is a shop located in Copenhagen, that carries a select mix of 20th century handmade and remade furniture, contemporary design and art, alongside with carefully chosen vintage Moroccan rugs all created by a carefully curated group of talented artists and designers.

Perth’s newest boutique hotel, the Alex Hotel, is so cool, so funky, so hipster, so much fun. The interiors by Arent&Pyke are like a breath of fresh air. No stuffy, seen-it-all-before hotel rooms here. No. Young, fresh, fab. I can feel a trip to Western Australia on my horizon if only just to book in for a few days.
