WEEK IN REVIEW: Rugs + Assets

I was literally jumping up and down the day I received my Moroccan Shag rug thanks to Rugs USA. It looks so pretty, and makes my old blue couch a little more bearable (a new couch is definitely on the replacement list for 2012). I've got a sideboard for our TV on the way, and am just looking for the perfect coffee table, chairs and side tables. I want a mixture of styles and textures throughout our place so it's definitely a collecting process.

Nail polish, similar here / Coral jeans here

More after the jump!

A good reminder:
Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have.

A new painting. Been working on a few commissions so I haven't done much new work lately. 
That is my goal for the next few months though — new work. 
This one isn't listed yet, but will be soon.

I've been wearing this tank c/o LAmade tank all summer. It's so soft and the perfect neutral color.

I went to The Phillips Collection this week and saw the Jasper Johns exhibt
This isn't a photo of that because you can't take photos of special exhibits, but I liked this wall.

Strolling thorough Georgetown there was this little yard full of lilies, the same height as me! I've never seen lilies like that before (or maybe I never noticed) but it literally stopped me in my tracks.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.

After Jessie gushed about Poshmark, I decided to switch my SecondLife store where I sell some of my clothes, to Poshmark. Jessie was telling me how easy it was, so I was in. It's an iPhone app and I believe they are working on making also making it also a store the web (it's currently not, but don't quote me on that) so if you want to take a gander at any of my clothes before I switch them all over to Poshmark (where you can only buy them through the app), do so soon!

I love your new painting! I will have to watch for when it is listed. I love your new rug, too! Rugs USA is so wonderful.

I love your pink jeans! So cute! And that rug looks so plush... I want to lay around on it and read a book!

That rug is phenomenal. The house I'm moving into in August has hardwood floors throughout the whole thing and we're scrambling to try and find some rugs!
That WC Fields quote is wonderful, too.

I love seeing that rug in "person"!! I ordered one just like it from RUGS USA (same one?) a few weeks ago when it was 75% off -- i CANNOT WAIT TO GET IT!!!!!!

Great choice :)

I love your pink nail polish in the Paul Arden quote picture. Any idea what the brand or color is?

I love this rug, but they don't ship to Hawaii :( Does it have thick backing? I can always send it to my parents and then smuggle it back with me in my checked luggage on my mainland trip later this month.

I've done this a couple times with fold-able rugs.. think this one can fold? Thanks Meg :)

Meg Biram said...

@Cate, it's a pretty thick rug. You could get the smaller one in a suitcase probably, but it's pretty plush. Definitely not a thin rug.

CATE said...

Awesome- I think I'll try to bring back the 4x6 with me in one of my giant duffles (seriously, they're huge... they look like body bags).

Thanks for taking the time to respond :)
