Justin Timberlake + Estee Stanley

Designer Estee Stanley and musician, actor, fashion designer Justin Timberlake for their new home decor line, HomeMint.

I am a hardcore JT fan and I think it is beyond cool that he is (along with his interior designer Estee Stanley) launching a line of home decor items. They line will be available at HomeMint which is, from what I could see on the website, similar to One King’s Lane and other that offer specials to members.

The pictures at Elle Decor show a lot of blue items but there seemed to be some reds and other colors in the background of the website. I like what I saw at Elle Decor and I’m looking forward to seeing what else is available through the line.

The HomeMint collection will offer a selection of curated art, tabletop, kitchen, textiles, and accent furniture. Read the article on Justin and Estee’s inspirations and collaboration here. Sign up for HomeMint here.

Until next time!

Got Rug? (The IKEA Edition)

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you know that I’m really picky about rugs. I find that lower end rugs tend lack the kind of style that I crave in a floor covering. So yesterday, after I got off work, I headed over to the textiles area at IKEA. I have to admit that textiles has become my favorite section at IKEA these days. They’ve got some really great stuff this year (a plethora of totally on trend items in purple/lavender being chief among them… but I digress). Anywho, I’m decided to see if they’d put any new rug styles up yet…

Whoa. I was struck by three styles in particular:

Gandrup rug (78″x118) IKEA – $299.

Graphic, black, gray, cream, and gold rug featuring stripes overlaid with an abstract daisy pattern. Love the chic color combo here! The really cool thing about this rug is that the color and pattern are crisp and clean, not murky or or muted like some IKEA rugs can be.

Broager rug (63″x94″) IKEA – $249.

This rug looks like a really cool gray in my pic (because of the lighting in the store) but is actually a warm, gray-brown with ivory flower sprays in the pattern. It is really lovely and soft in person. This would make a great choice for someone who wanted something with a feminine but clean edge to it.

Skoghall rug (78″x118″) IKEA – $249

The last rug is not offered in a colorway that I would usually get but it was so pretty, I had to share it here. This one has a rich, milky orange red (it literally reminds me of tomato soup) with a gorgeous abstracted flower pattern in a low contrast brown/tan. The tag says it is red/black but it definitely looked brownish tan in the showroom. The pattern on this is so beautiful! I wish they offered it in a cool colorway… like green and blue. Still, if you’re doing warm tones in your house this would be an awesome choice.

Have a great week! I hope your Monday is like a Friday! See you tomorrow. πŸ™‚

So, rugs…

I kinda have a love/hate with them. See, rugs can be really cool. Frequently they are not. When I see a rug that is a) cool, b) colorful, and c) wallet friendly… well, do I even need to say anything about happy dances?

So, why ( you may well ask) are you on about rugs, Jo? I just got CB2’s new catalog and there are some serious charmers in it.

Above, in order:
Dangerous Liaisons
Tango
Doce Caras
The Way You Move

Now that’s more like it!
