Ever drool over the thought of a new rug with a striking design but you are not sure how the pattern may work in your space? Meet Christina & Alex. Their Vail mountain home is a fantastic source of inspiration, showcasing the Thomas Paul Feathers rug in plum and cream. Notice how the Thomas Paul Swallows and Buds accent pillows in plum on their couch perfectly tie the rug in to the room. Enjoy!

Alison’s Heroic Branford Coastal Renovation

I was so excited to be able to see my cousin Alison’s renovated 800-square foot beach house in Branford Connecticut this weekend. It’s her first house, and I’ve been following the project since she bought the house in January.

I wish she had had the time for a blog during construction; it would probably include all kinds of horror stories like a little paw stretching out through a kitchen vent; coming home and finding out the glass tile she splurged on was put on the wall backwards, with the backing side facing out; having to shower at the gym for weeks; staying on a friend’s sofa for six weeks instead of the promised one week; having to move all of the furniture from one floor to the other on a regular basis due to floor refinishing, etc.  All of the suffering and frustrations have finally paid off! Just about everything is done, right down to the purple trim. The best part was that we were able to carry her two sea kayaks across the road and explore Long Island Sound.

If You Show Me Yours, I’ll…

…post it for everyone else to see! It has been way too long since we showed a Hatch reader profile, and I’d love to help you show off what you have going on right here! We’re nosy – please let us peek in your windows! It does not have to have anything to do with Design Public products in your home. I’ve been really uninspired this week – please share something and help get me out of this rut!

If you want to show off a little, simply leave a comment below and I’ll be able to email you through our system.

Thanks!

-Becky

P.S. Here’s a little peek at mine – from my guest bathroom. The Barbara Walters book is a hoot – I picked it up for $1 at a junk store.

P.S.S. Our first customer profile happened to be with fabulous artist Amy Ruppel, and it led to her collaboration with Eleventwentyfive! You never know what can happen when you let people take a little peek!

Vintage Modern Maven – Meet Frecklewonder

from frecklewonder.typepad.comI’m sure many of you have stopped by Jenny Mitchell’s charming website frecklewonder many times. Jenny has the best eye for turning other peoples’ discards into absolute treasures, and her merchandising, art direction and modeling skills can’t be beat. Jenny was an acquaintance of mine when I lived in Virginia, and it’s been really fun to watch her create new items (jewelry, totes, magnets, to name a few) and to see what treasures she’s found over the years. By the way, if you ever want to be able to score frecklewonder goodies, you must get on her mailing list – after every update announcement, everything sells at the speed of lightening!

Recently Jenny and her family found and bought their ’60’s modern dream house. The pictures are so much fun to look through. I asked her if I could swipe them and share them with you all over here and she agreed in her usual cheery way. Thanks so much Jenny!

Here they are falling in love with the house before they bought it:
