new bedding

August 20, 2012

I just got some new bedding.  I was ready for a change and we really needed new sheets.  I was getting tired of the all white and I have this black and white ikat duvet cover that I got at West Elm a while back, but I’ve still just been using my white sheets.

Today I went bold for me and mixed and matched some blue bedding from Roberta Roller Rabbit.

I’ve also been loving this Bruschwig & Fils Dzhambul fabric and have been thinking I would make 3 euro shams for my bed but I haven’t been able to make up my mind…

Here are my multiple bedding options, I was feeling like I wanted to change the wall color behind my bed, but now I’m thinking maybe no, just go for the Dzhambul istead.

What do you think, do I do the Dzhambul, do I paint the wall, do I do both, nothing??? Decorating for myself is such a challenge!!!

Here is the new fitted sheet and blue shams, bold move for me as my bed is usually all white.

Here it is paired with the Dzhambul fabric that I like…I’ll still have my white duvet which will mostly cover the busy sheet.  What do you think?

When I want a change of pace, here is my black and white ikat bedding.  I know, my duvet cover needs a serious ironing, tell it to my 2 year old and 5 1/2 year old…


Moroccan Tile Obsession

June 18, 2012

It all started with the tile at Intelligentsia Coffee House in Silverlake.  I went searching for what and where I could find this tile and ended up on the Granada Tile site.  I found the Fez Tile that I was looking for, and then got addicted to their interactive tile customizer.  You can literally sit there and go through each and every tile on the site and come up with countless tile color combos…

I wasted more time than was necessary designing tile combos for no one.  I highly recommend you try it.

Backtrack for a minute…

It actually all started because I’m searching tile for a project.  I got this cray cray idea that I want to put a super earthy moroccan tile in an ultra modern kitchen.

So after finding Granada, I start searching for more moroccan cement tiles and get to Popham Design.  You should go to their site right now and look at every single product that they make.  Their shit is RIDICULOUS.

Anyway, I get on the Popham Design site and start milling around and find a pattern that I had been looking at earlier in the day during a visit to my local Ann Sacks.  I am proud to admit that I am borderline stalking their Zig Zag pattern.

It’s probably the one, we’ll see…

Here is the Fez Tile by Granada, the tile that started this whole thing.

Here’s the Zig Zag by Popham Design, yum!
