abc carpet & home’s sublime summer sale.

moroccan area rug from abc carpet and home with a white cake stand and fresh cut fruit / sfgirlbybay

if i had to choose just one favorite store in the whole wide world i know it would have to be new york city’s abc carpet & home. any visit i make to new york must include an idyllic and leisurely afternoon of exploring every floor of their beautiful six-floor Manhattan flagship showroom followed by a long, lazy lunch in the abc kitchen where i can sit, think and absorb all that inspiration. abc’s collections are unique and bespoke — an eclectic mix of bohemian modern and vintage-inspired — just my jam. the annual abc carpet & home summer sale is on and they very kindly invited me to share a little summer love with y’all. i couldn’t think of anything more beautiful than styling up an indoor picnic spread against a mix of a few of their stunning and one-of-a-kind rugs.

i paired this amazing handwoven vintage moroccan wool rug with a mod ‘flower power’ pattern for our top layer — wow! i then followed it with this unique geometric black & pink nomad vintage flat weave wool rug inspired by the colors, cultures, and landscapes of the eastern deserts — sigh — i’m quite sure this one wants to live with me permanently. and lastly, i added the bara bara vintage wool rug — an eccentric work of art, this collection brings the perfect mix of bohemian eclecticism to any space. the abc carpet & home sale is on through july 17th and there are gorgeous offerings up to 70% off! happy summer sale, indeed!

i’m such a fan of paris-based photographer julie ansiau. her photography is bright, beautiful and a little bit whimsical, and even with decor images like these, the styling gets just a little bit playful. julie shoots for elle, figaro and milk magazines, just to name a few. she also keeps a blog, blog des fruits des fleurs etc. with updates on her latest projects — these are just a few of her very inspiring decor images.

this is such a pretty color palette, don’t you think? some cool blues and hints of pale peachy blush and orange — maybe some sage green for good measure. very soothing, very calm — perhaps a perfect palette to consider for a vacation home by the beach, or an updated version of southwestern desert vibe. i spy: blues + hints of blush.

it’s been record high temps for L.A. in june these past two weeks, and wouldn’t you know it but my AC decides to go kaput on me. lucy’s panting on the floor and i’m working practically naked whilst positioned directly in front of the fan. ugh. 108 temperatures last monday sent me in search of cool, calm and collected decor looks to ease my sweaty pain. all these spaces seem to bring down the heat whilst still looking good — cool vibes for warm summer days is what we need — lots of rattan, ikat and Moroccan prints -and neutrals for keeping the room in a calming comfort zone that is much needed right now. let’s chill, shall we?
