Now there are
more than three that I use but I thought this was a good jumping off point and a great way for you to come back and read more posts. If you have kids age 4 or 40, or kids of the cute and furry variety this post is for you!
There are so many fun choices for area rugs these days, but I
love natural fiber rugs. These rugs add texture, are durable, and rarely compete with anything else in a room. Also, I
have a slight addiction to layering a smaller geometric, shag or over-dyed rug on top, under a coffee table, or on an angle to add an extra layer of oomph.
After ten years of experimenting with everything from jute to sisal to seagrass. I have decided the half-panama seagrass is
fiber of choice.
I buy my custom seagrass rugs at
which you can buy
. They are reasonably priced and are quick to ship. Because of the low price point, if the rug gets destroyed I never get the guilts about replacing it. Don’t like the texture of these fiber rugs? They also carry wool versions.
And by the way, if you are still coveting the diamond pattern Stark natural fiber rug

I use indoor/outdoor fabrics for high traffic areas in my house. Why you ask?
Do you know this guy?
I can’t seem to shake him. He has a keen sense of knowing when his older siblings leave a sharpie laying around. Did you know sharpies come in this shade of aubergine? Neither did I until I saw it all over his head. In addition, he graffitied all over my newly upholstered leopard ottoman.
Let me stop and share something with you here … these are just possessions and there are much bigger problems in life so I don’t freak out that much about these types of things. I just try to avoid any possible heart pumping incidents.
Indoor/outdoor fabrics come in so many different styles, textures and patterns now. What’s great about these fabrics? You can clean them with mild detergent and water (each manufacturer will have their own instructions).
The mother of all indoor/outdoor fabrics is
at Aubusson Home.
for Schumacher is
another company that carries these durable fabrics as well. If you look around you will find one that can work for your project.
Abstracts are my new obsession. I love art and really feel that art makes your home special and meaningful.

And by the way if a sharpie makes its way onto one of these pieces… frankly, who the heck would notice? Hence, indestructible.
Heading to NYC soon for the weekend with a girlfriend of mine. We are staying in the village …you know, where all the girls are like 7ft tall, looking all modelly and stuff. My friend and I are going to try and look at least 5’4 and dress cool.
Well, this friend of mine gave me a few tips on how to get that natural makeup look and I thought I’d share because I swear they kinda work.
Now, mind you this is not Kardashian type makeup. This is more like Kristen Wiig from Bridesmaids when she wakes up next to John Hamm and says ” Oh, I just wake up like this”. Remember that line? No? Turn on HBO its probably on…
Have you ever used this stuff?
How about this mascara from Clinique?
One last item from drugstore…
