1 Rug, 3 Styles

14 Dec

Happy Friday everyone! Boy do I have a treat for you! Today I am so excited to have guest blogger Adria Saracino from the fashion blog The Emerald Closet here to show you how you can you can make the most out of your area rug. I hope you all find this helpful! Have a great weekend!

Buying a rug is a big commitment; they’re expensive and as a result usually stick around for a long time. It can take months of browsing through various styles of rugs before you find the perfect fit for your space. And once you choose a rug you might find yourself feeling boxed into one style or another based on your rug’s design.

But you shouldn’t worry; rugs are far more versatile than you might think. We’ve chosen one rug and paired it with three different design styles to help you out with some rug inspiration.
Note, this one is from Macy’s, but there are other options and similar styles available in its rug section if this specific color, pattern, or price point doesn’t work for you.

Minimal Modern

TheSuiteLifeDesigns-Rug-MinimalModern

The key to this bold, punchy style is plenty of crisp, clean lines and blocks of color. The rug’s geometric print is perfectly suited to the blocky sofa and chair. Minimal modern focuses on a neutral palette with pops of color, which are seen in the chair, art print, and dresser.
1. One light floor lamp
2. Salt water cure print
3. Triangles terrarium
4. Ocher chair
5. Lake Tahoe dresser
6. Steel sofa

New Traditional

TheSuiteLifeDesigns-Rug-NewTraditional (1)

As you probably guessed, this style has its roots in the traditional style, which focuses on rich colors, antique period furnishings, carved wood, and upholstered pieces. But new traditional does not focus so heavily on the ornate details as the traditional style does.
1. Fruiteria lamp
2. 3 seat fabric sofa
3. Chevron frame
4. Glass jewelry box
5. Nutmeg wingback chair
6. Sanibel dresser

Rustic

TheSuiteLifeDesigns-Rug-Rustic

This style promotes a simple, laid back atmosphere, and is often influenced by a regional area (i.e. the desert Southwest or a lake side cabin). The specifics of this style can vary greatly, but common elements include handcrafted/rough wood, metal work, antique fabrics, taxidermy, and distressed leather.
1. Leather sofa
2. Cloche table lamp
3. Rabbit profile print
4. Globe
5. Vintage antler mount
6. Lizard trunk
7. Apothecary storage cabinet

Adria Saracino is a chronic pinner and style blogger over at The Emerald Closet fashion blog. When not taking photos of stylish Seattleites or contemplating her next home design purchase, you can find her checking out one of Seattle’s trendy restaurants or watching HGTV.

Canopy Beds

I have been noticing so many beautiful canopy beds lately. I have gathered some of the best just for you! So I am curious to know what you think of canopy beds. Love or hate?

Celebrity Style: Living Rooms

24 Feb

Happy Friday everyone! Is it me or did this week fly by? Does anyone else ever wonder what the inside of your favorite celebrities’ homes look like? Well today I will show you some of their great living rooms. There are some great photos that you can use as inspiration for your home.

This Hollywood Hills living room belongs to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. This is a great retro eclectic space. The rosewood paneling, purple drapery, and beautiful rug add a lot of warmth to the room. And how awesome is that purple tufted couch?

via Architectural Digest

This traditional Manhattan living room belongs to actress Brooke Shields. How interesting and fabulous are those portraits of her daughters? The french style armchairs are so elegant and the pops of color add a modern touch.

via Elle Decor

This Malibu retreat belongs to actress Courtney Cox. This is a modern and comfortable room. I could curl up on that couch and just stare at the views couldn’t you? The flagstone fireplace is a great focal point and highlights how high the ceiling is. That lamp extending over the sectional is awesome!

via Architectural Digest

This is a dramatic vintage inspired living room belonging to TV mogul Darren Star. I love the bronze fireplace it is so dramatic and draws your eye upward. The 1920s inspired wood stools are so beautiful. I love all the different styles of seating and it is something you can re-create for your home.

This beach house living room belongs to Meg Ryan. The first thing I noticed when looking at this space is that custom light fixture, it is so interesting. This room is so calm and comfortable. Keeping this space all white with the the exception of a few furniture pieces keeps the room feeling casual and beachy.

This elegant sitting area belongs to actress Megan Mullally.The contrast of dark and light is such a timeless look.  The only pops of color come from the pillows which is great. This look is easy to achieve in your home.

By looking at this picture I would have never guessed who it belonged to. The owner is fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. The focal point of this over the top space is the Andy Warhol Elizabeth Taylor painting (one of my faves). This is a small area, but jam packed with luxurious finishes and fabrics. What do you think of this room? Take a look at the link above for more pictures of his luxurious apartment.

This interesting living room belongs to fashion designer Tory Burch. I love how there are two separate seating areas in different styles yet it all comes together nicely. The coral drapery used throughout the space really pulls everything together. The needlepoint chairs and Japanese paintings add a lot of interest to this room. The chandelier is gorgeous! The far side of the living room is elegant and muted while the closer seating area has a lot of interesting prints and colors going on. It is such an interesting combination. This space is warm and has a little bit of a romantic vibe to it. What do you think of this living room?

Hope you enjoyed the celebrity styles! Have a fabulous weekend!
