If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect fabric for your tiki lounge — Tommy Bahama has some terrific options for your upholstery, drapes, pillows, bar cushions — all with a healthy dose of island flair. These patterns are bold, colorful and fun — all the things that should be present in a tiki style room. No room in the house for a tiki lounge? Many of these prints are available in outdoor fabric, too — and they probably look very nice next to your tiki torches. Heck even if you don’t have a tiki themed room — check out the lively patterns that are available — they might just momentarily transport you to your own tropical island.
I’m pretty sure the fascionistas will approve of this plaid carpet find: 100% wool Natural Plaid carpets by the iconic British maker, Axminster aka Wilton. Whereas yesterday’s post focused on an inexpensive, nylon plaid carpet for knotty pine rooms, today I’m spotlighting a more subdued, all-wool style that could suit more formal, even upscale, living spaces. Like, they have photos of Prince Charles on their website.Heck yeah there is more →
I want SF Troy to come over to my house and reorganize all my collections. He’s moved into a new house — a vintage Eichler, ooh la la. I’ll have another post that tells and shows all, but meanwhile, here’s a sneak peek at his collections and how he’s displayed them all, just four months into the new space. Whimsy! Color! Massing! Yup, this boy knows how to do it, all right.
Welcome, frends. 15 great photos in all. Heck yeah there is more →
I think that our readers in Eichler homes and other mid-century modern homes will like this bedroom. This design is from 1954. The slate blue and orange color combination is stunning, and the “simplicity” of the design is so elegant and yet, comfortable. Heck yeah there is more →
Continuing the theme of the week, another great interior to scrutinize and learn from.
This 1952 living room dining room comes courtesy the interior designers at Armstrong Flooring. To be sure, this company had a massive influence via their advertising in establishing the postwar look. Seems like they were among the first to figure out that if you employed interior designers to finish a whole room — especially as it was a new look for America — it would be lots easier to sell the pieces — starting with the floor.Heck yeah there is more →
