It only took, oh, 4 months

But the final result was worth it! My Madeline Weinrib rug is finally in place in the entryway. If you’ll remember, I had placed an initial order for the lighter blue, but when it came in, it was really striated and the color was just …. well, country looking. It wasn’t the visual pop of color that I had envisioned.

So this just proves that I need to stick with my gut instinct. I second-guessed myself on the color, and if I had gone with my gut, I would’ve saved time and shipping. ::sigh:: Oh well. We’re really pleased with the final result. It looks lovely!

YES! I am so amped

Why, you ask? Because I finally ordered THIS:

YES YES YES! I am super excited. It will be here either Friday or Saturday. I’m thinking Saturday. Oh man. Can’t even WAIT!

Big big thanks to Mom & Dad for making this possible via Christmas money.

Designer Rugs of Oklahoma City

I am so excited to show you guys Designer Rugs. Simon had told me about it a few years ago, but I had never managed to make it in, for one reason or another. He raved and raved about how cool it was and kept saying, “You’ve gotta go; you’ll be in rug heaven.”  So a few weeks ago, he finally got me in there, and boy oh boy, was he right!   Located in an unassuming locale on Wilshire Avenue, it’s not the kind of place that will grab your eye from the street.

But just get yourself in the door — that’s when the real fun starts!

Let me just say, this is not your typical Oklahoma place, if you know what I mean. Designer Rugs has the most amazing rug selection that I have ever seen outside of ABC Carpet & Home of NYC. It’s that cool. They carry lines that no one else in the area carries, and they intend to keep it that way. I’m talking lines like Missoni Home (!), Jonathan Adler, Dash & Albert, to name a few. I’m madly in love, and I’m working with them on securing me my Madeline Weinrib rug (please please pllleeeeeaaaaaaasssseeee!!!!)  

Anyway, I went in today to talk about rugs with them, and I was once again impressed with their knowledge, expertise, and general all-around coolness. 🙂   They also carry a sensational pillow selection, and (and!!) they are happy to custom make nearly anything for you within your price range. They’re that good.Anyways, my pictures don’t even do it justice. It’s just one big rug candy store! I’m really hopeful that we’ll be able to work something out and that they can get the MW rug for me. I so want to support local business, especially in such turbulent economic times. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to send business to ABC Carpet & Home, too, but I really feel strongly about getting cool stuff into Oklahoma City. There’s only been minimal options for far too long; it’s time that we are able to have a variety of style to choose from.Designer Rugs

Let there be stripes!

Well, I finally bit the bullet and ordered this Dwell Studio for Target rug for Jude’s room (to place in front of his crib). I don’t know why I’ve been dragging my feet, but I’ve been wanting it for months. I saw this rug when the Dwell Studio stuff first came out, and for $79, it’s not exactly expensive for a 5×8 wool rug. I’ve read a few reviews from other people who have purchased this rug, and most seem to agree that for the price, the quality is pretty good. So, we will see. I’m excited; I think it will add a nice little zing to Jude’s room.

It also comes in a green version that’s pretty nice.
